Haipai Cuisine, literally meaning all-embracing cuisine, is derived from the universal culture formed in Shanghai by the end of the Qing dynasty around 1911. This cuisine was developed when Shanghai became a trading port and started to adopt all types of cuisine and cooking techniques. Hence, Shanghai basically does not have a local cuisine of its own but refines those of the neighbouring provinces. Haipai takes all the appealing elements of other cuisines, both local and international, and incorporates them to according to local tastes.
