Israeli cookbook published in Taiwan E-mail

A Chinese-language version of the book Jerusalem was recently released in Taiwan, making it the first cookbook on Israeli dishes to be published there. The book promotes the culture of Israel through its diverse food and the history behind the dishes.

The cookbook, written by Israeli chefs Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi, includes 120 recipes that explore the rich flavours of Jerusalem.

Emily Ching-Chun Chuang, editor-in-chief of Emily Publishing Co., said at the book launch in April that she was impressed by Israeli cuisine when she visited the country in 2013, and missed the food.

“Israel has delicious food, such as hummus and pita bread, but these are not well known to many Taiwanese people,” she said, adding that the Chinese version of the cookbook is intended to introduce the food and culture of Israel to the Taiwanese people.

Asher Yarden, Israel’s representative to Taiwan, also attended the event to support the book. Speaking at the launch, he said he hoped it would help promote Israeli culture in Taiwan. He said that bilateral ties are good but that there is a need to improve mutual understanding.
