Why Taiwan Is Not "Chinese Taipei"
with Yone of Flavour Journey
I reached out to Yone because she shares such interesting stories about the flavors and ingredients she finds in the markets of Taipei… and because she’s willing to speak openly about the current pressures and threats on the Taiwanese, which is something I wanted to learn more about. It wasn’t until after I started to research for this interview that I learned she also identifies as a Latin American woman, because she was born, raised, and educated in São Paulo, Brazil, where it turns out there is a vibrant and resilient Taiwanese community. Yone is funny, matter–of-fact, and her story is every bit as fascinating as it sounds. Excited to share and just thrilled that you are all here today, thank you!!

More About The Storied Recipe Podcast
The concept of The Storied Recipe is unique - every guest gives me a recipe that represents a cherished memory, custom, or person. I actually make, photograph, and share the recipe. During the interview, I discuss the memories and culture around the recipe, and also my experience (especially my mistakes and questions!) as I tried it. My listeners and I are a community that believes food is a love language unto itself. With every episode, we become better cooks and global citizens, more grateful for the gift of food, and we honor those that loved us through their cooking.
I am also a storytelling photographer celebrating food in extraordinary light
