The Taiwan Tourism Bureau has announced the broadcasting of “Taste Taiwan,” a special 30-minute culinary program featuring three award-winning chefs on an 8-day culinary journey through Taiwan.

Selected to participate in this tour after being nominated during the Taiwan Tourism Bureau’s “Taste Taiwan” Chef Nomination in October 2013, the three winning chefs are Chef/Partner Michael Ferraro of Delicatessen in New York, Chef Bryant Wigger of Trattoria Neapolis in Los Angeles, and Executive Chef Thomas Heinrich ofMosaic Bar and Grille at the Hyatt Regency in Vancouver, Canada.

While in Taiwan, the chefs visited the country’s finest restaurants, experienced its fresh produce markets and street foods, and partook in numerous adventures along the way. Upon their return, each of the chefs created a dish inspired by their trip to Taiwan. Chef Michael of Delicatessen in New York created seafood sausage with Hakka green tea pesto. Chef Bryant of Trattoria Neapolis in Los Angeles created five-spice roasted pork belly with fried baby shrimp and polenta. Chef Thomas of Mosaic Bar and Grille at the Hyatt Regency in Vancouver created a full 4-course Taiwanese Tasting Menu featuring Hakka tea crusted line-caught lingcod. All of the dishes are available at the chefs’ respective restaurants until mid-February 2014.

“Taste Taiwan” is set to air throughout the United States on the Discovery Channel on Saturday, February 15th at 8AM EST/PST. Viewers worldwide will also be able to watch the show at the same time on YouTube.
