In Taiwan, food is very important part of the daily life and the Taiwanese are very proud of their own cuisine which appears on every street corner and night market.
However, given that, there are many nationalities represented within WTIC, we are eager to explain and further—show our own cultures and traditions—with food.
The international Cooking Demonstration Group started around 2002 with a few ladies who enjoyed gathering together to cook of each other. As the group became more popular, it started to grow very quickly in size, our member’s kitchen became too small and we were facing a new concept for our group.
We started to explore small but very unique restaurants around Taipei. it was great fun and the food was always outstanding. As the new concept for the group grew even more popular, further members of WTIC wanted to be part of the group which put us in a situation where we had to turn to bigger venues with once again in a new concept.
The Representative and Embassy offices got involved which took the cooking demonstration to a whole new level. Big restaurants with capacities for over 100 people became the new venues, and chefs received instructions from the lady in charge at each event on that dishes to cook and teach to members of the group. this gave us the opportunity to educate members by providing them with tourist information, fashion shows, presentations and much more about the country featured at each event.
The development o the group is fantastic to see and be a part of it. I wish the group the best of luck with more adventures in the culinary part to come.
