Taiwan is known for one of the most diverse cuisines in Asia. A sumptuous exploration of the island’s culinary traditions and mix of cultures, the film begins in Taipei, circles the island, and then heads inland. Along the way we enter the restaurant Shin Yeh atop the city’s Taipei 101 skyscraper; are treated to a lesson on eating soup dumplings; and visit an aboriginal chef who makes bouillabaisse within a tree trunk, cooked by heated stones.

“It not only demonstrates extraordinary cuisines but also includes the production chain and regional culture.”
