The Night Market – Street Foods of Taiwan

Taiwan is a country known for its street food. Its night markets are filled with simple, nourishing dishes that reflect the island’s abundant seafood, produce, poultry, and sweet fruits. In this class, we delve into three popular street food dishes found throughout Taiwan: the oyster pancake, Chiayi-style chicken rice, and fried milk.
Chef Tiffany Ran will take you through these recipes while also sharing her favorite night markets and street foods that she’s discovered in Taipei. With these particular dishes, you’ll also learn about the popular sauces and condiments that go with many Taiwanese dishes like the haishan (sweet chili) sauce, sweet soy paste, and shallot sauce. You’ll also learn about the stories behind each dish, ones surprisingly rich in history and cultural exchange.
