Nuodeng village in northern Dali Bai Autonomous Prefecture is famous for hams. Salted years ago, the hams have been air-dried completely. Dali's wet and warm climate helps ferment the hams and create a unique flavor. The classic dishes include Nuodeng ham fried with celtuce and Nuodeng ham fried with rice.

Yunnan steam pot chicken is regarded as one of the symbols of Yunnan cuisine. Generally, local people use a earthenware pot with a little spout in the belly of the vessel to cook chicken, together with sliced mushrooms and ginger, which makes the chicken tender and soup flavorful. If you open the pot, delightful and mouth-watering scent will waft toward you.
