The Five Element theory in Chinese cooking

Some 3000 years ago in China, a scientific approach was formulated for cooking :
The basic rule was that the five flavors - sour, sweet, bitter, hot and salty - must be combined in a meal to achieve balance and harmony. Each of the elements neutralizes or counterbalances another element and each element creates a desire for another element.

This theory is actually fundamental to the Chinese health care system and the foundation of traditional Chinese medicine, which holds that bitter flavor relates to the heart, sour to the liver, sweet to the spleen, spicy to the lungs and salty to the kidneys.
