We love Taiwanese food… It fuels us. We bond around it. Our friends and family ask us “chia̍h-pá—bē?” or “have you eaten yet?” as an expression of hospitality. Most importantly, it reminds of us home, family, and what it means to be of unique Taiwanese heritage.
TACL-LYF and NATWA-NC have joined together to create the second edition of Homestyle Cooking of Taiwan. The book includes suggested menus for various occasions and quick guidelines for prep time, complexity level, and significance in Taiwanese culture. It’s a beautiful book with recipes written, tested, and re-tested by Taiwanese moms and grandmas in collaboration with second generation Taiwanese Americans.
TaiwaneseAmerican.org is pleased to help promote the new contemporary version of the cookbook entitled Taiwanese Homestyle Cooking [懷念的台灣菜], which is now available for online ordering!
We’ve reviewed the cookbook ourselves and know it will be great for those looking for solid recipes to follow at home or for those looking to give gifts to friends and family. The amazing thing about this project is that 100% of the proceeds will benefit the TACL-LYF programs and initiatives, including College Workshop Series, LYF Camp Scholarships, and their flagship program, the annual TACL-LYF Camp.

I would recommend this cook book if you’re looking for home style Taiwanese cooking. It is organized and shows the dishes cultural significance and ease of the recipe. I’m excited to show my mom too because it is in Chinese AND English! I am really excited to share my enthusiasm with this cookbook =)
