ChongQing foods are part of Sichuan cuisine.
Sichuan cuisine, or Szechwan cuisine (四川菜， 川菜) is a style of Chinese cuisine originating from Sichuan province in southwestern China. It has bold flavor , particularly the pungency（辛辣） and spiciness resulting from liberal use of garlic and chili peppers（红辣椒）, as well as the unique flavor of the Sichuan pepper. Peanuts, sesame paste, and ginger （姜）are also prominent ingredients in Szechuan cooking. Although the official pinyin romanisation now is Sichuan, the cuisine is still often spelled Szechuan or Szechwan in North America.
