Description
Acclaimed author Cathy Erway offers an insider's look at Taiwanese cooking from home-style dishes to authentic street food While certain dishes from Taiwan are immensely popular, like steamed buns and bubble tea, the cuisine still remains relatively unknown in America. In "The Food of Taiwan," Taiwanese-American Cathy Erway, the acclaimed blogger and author of "The Art of Eating In," gives readers an insider's look at Taiwanese cooking with almost 100 recipes for both home-style dishes and street food. Recipes range from the familiar, such as Pork Belly Buns, Three Cup Chicken, and Beef Noodle Soup, to the exotic, like the Stuffed Bitter Melon, Oyster Noodle Soup, and Dried Radish Omelet. Tantalizing food photographs intersperse with beautiful shots of Taiwan's coasts, mountains, and farms and gritty photos of bustling city scenes, making this book just asenticing to flip through as it is to cook from.
