Jil Wu, with whom I have been working on various projects for last few years, is just curating a new and very particular exhibition in Taiwan, called SAVORING TIME. It is all about so beloved Taiwanese cuisine, the lifestyle where it originated from. And this is her repot on this:
Taiwan’s contemporary culinary delights were given fusion flavors by residents of military kindred villages converging from various parts of China. After almost 7 decades since 1947, the fusion has rooted in Taiwan, sprouting up robust innovation, such as the unique tale of Chittering in Pot — Taiwanese Style.
“Savoring Time” depicts the military kindred village’s storied homemade meals of simplest cooking ingredients and most authentic tastes. Each dish exhibits refinement of harsh life and exhausting existence; and every bite, instant aromas with sweet aftertaste of memories.
Themed on “Savoring Time”, the 1st “Delicacies of Military Kindred Village” Exhibition offers a journey down the memory lanes via those homemade dishes replicated in the old buildings of Village 44-South, as we explore genuine stories, varied lives, and culinary delights.
