    "的" of Chinese phrase is not always interchangable with the "of" of English phrase.

    Especially in a phrase "Noun" + "的”+"Noun”, "Noun(people)" + "的”  could work as an adjective. 

    Like : 四川的菜  Sichuan food or 中国的朋友 Chinese Friend

    In the case above, you do not add "of".

    Also, in a phrase like "Noun(人)" + "的”+"Noun(东西)” , "的” indicates the owner of the goods, So you would use "Noun(人)'s" in English.

    Like : 汤姆的书 Tom's book or 姐姐的生日 Sister's birthday
