    Autumn Crab Hunt

    Crabs are available throughout the year, but autumn is the best season for crabs. As the old saying goes: "Autumn winds rise, crab feet itch; chrysanthemum blossom, hear the crabs come." Lake Yangcheng's hairy crabs are, of course, famous, but in recent years, Taiwan's aquaculture industry has also cultivated hiary crabs of excellent quality. Water quality is key to breeding hairy crabs.

    Spicy Spice-filled cuisine

    What are the four gods of Chinese cuisine?  No lavish shark's fin, ginseng, abalone or maw, but spring onion, ginger, garlic and chilli, which remove fishiness and enhance flavours for the main ingredients in sautéing, cooking, pan-frying and deep-frying. Come to think about it, Chinese cuisine wouldn't work without these "supporting characters" quietly helping out on the side.

    Sichuan Flavours

    Bright red chilli peppers.  Sicuhan people are not afraid of spiciness, and Sichuan cuisine is famous for its incredible spiciness. It's almost impossible to make without spiciness, thus chilli peppers are essential to Sichuan cuisine. In the hills of Tamsui, there is a king of chilli peppers, who has introduced over 100 kinds of chilli peppers to Taiwan.
