Support Youth Programs with Purchase of Taiwanese Homestyle Cookbook

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.

Last year, TACL-LYF and NATWA-NC 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. is pleased to help promote the new contemporary version of the cookbook entitled Taiwanese Homestyle Cooking [懷念的台灣菜].

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 cost per cookbook is $25. 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.

  1. I just got this book because I was looking for a Taiwanese cook book to learn from recipes. This cook book is great! Each recipe is easy to follow and has difficulty, cultural reference, and a rough time frame that makes it really easy to get a feel for what recipes to start with or how “Taiwanese” the dish is! It’s great! I would highly recommend getting this book. It’s also well organized, colorful, and in English AND Chinese!
