TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — The European Economic and Trade Office (EETO) has launched a cooking show on YouTube in partnership with the offices of the 15 EU member states in Taiwan.
Titled “Taste of Europe”, the show features delicious European dishes, prepared by European representatives in Taiwan. In a trailer released on December 10, EETO Filip Grzegorzewski said:
“There is no better way to learn about a place and its people than by tasting the food,” adding that food “is a magical thing that connects us to each other, evokes emotions and brings back memories of when and where we first tasted.”
The 15-episode miniseries will bring Taiwan and Europe closer because Taiwanese and Europeans are both passionate about food, Grzegorzewski said.
Each week, representatives and colleagues from one of the 15 EU countries represented will share an iconic dish with the Taiwanese public. Cuisines from Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, Spain and Sweden will be featured on the show, according to a press release from EETO.
John Huang, a Taiwanese chef, was selected to host and help the representatives prepare the dishes, while describing the culinary cultures in Europe and Taiwan.
The series will air on the EETO YouTube channel every Friday from December 17 until the end of March next year. The first episode focuses on the Austrian dish wiener schnitzel, with Austrian envoy to Taiwan Roland Rudorfer explaining how to prepare it.
