Storyline

The Raw and The Cooked is a culinary journey around the gourmets paradise, Taiwan. The film makes seven stops along the way. In the islands capital, Taipei, we visit a traditional Taiwanese restaurant, a legendary dim-sum palace, and one of the citys lively night markets. Next, we encounter the hearty cuisine of the Hakka, Taiwans largest ethnic community; were introduced to the pure and delicious seafood specialties of the Ami indigenous tribe; and we get a glimpse of the Buddhist influences on Taiwanese cuisine. Finally, we are invited to a banquet by one of the islands most creative chefs. Combining traditional cuisine and best organic ingredients, he weaves a culinary magic to create spectacular and novel dishes. On our travels, we witness the efforts of Taiwans young environmental movement to resist the rapid pace of urbanisation, which is destroying much of the islands beautiful countryside. The Raw and The Cooked is an island tour that celebrates fine food.
