Why you should go. Focusing attention into the palette, AAWW hosts an evening for language, food, art, & place to come together on a shared table. Situating her writing from the perspective of food, author Chienfang Chang will share pieces of her recent work at the Vermont Studio Center as well as engage in a guided tasting & reading of aiyu, a plant indigenous to the mountains of Taiwan, with chef Pyna Yang. We will lead guests through the process of preparing aiyu following local tradition and discussions will follow the roots of how food opens a space for both cultural exchange and social justice.

What is TPECC?

The Taipei Economic and Cultural Office, or de-facto Taiwanese Consulate is an impressive place featuring many free cultural events that are worth checking out. They are often short, hassle free and always a chance to meet new faces.

  • Dressy or business casual is fine.
