It’s Linsanity on A Taste of the Past!! Tune in as Linda discusses the cuisine and culture of Taiwan with Jessica Chien and Joanne Liu, freelance pastry chefs. Learn the differences between China, Japan and Taiwan when it comes to food and hear what makes Taiwanese cuisine stand out from the rest. From their bountiful produce and livestock options to the creative cultural dishes, listeners will come away with a new found knowledge and respect for the food from this Asian-Pacific island. This program was sponsored by Whole Foods Market.




“What makes Taiwanese food unique is that the country is self sustaining. There’s plentiful amounts of agriculture, seafood, poultry, pork and beef. In mainland China, there are provinces where you can only have one type of vegetable or livestock. It’s not as bountiful as Taiwan.”
