Chinese noodles are quick to cook, hard to get wrong and LOVED by all who try them. They are without a doubt one of Asia’s favorite foods and are made from a variety of ingredients including wheat, egg, rice, mung bean and buckwheat. Believed to date back to the Eastern Han Dynasty (25–220 AD), they are an essential ingredient and staple in Chinese cuisine. In 2005, a beautifully preserved bowl of 4,000-year-old noodles was unearthed during an archaeological dig in China. Further research showed the noodles to have been made from two kinds of millet, a grain indigenous to and widely cultivated in China 7,000 years ago.
