Zhuling Organic Farm Ms. Huang
Basil is one of the spices loved by many home cooks around the world.
Especially in Taiwan, basil could be used in a lot of our everyday foods. Not only does basil have a fragrant smell, but it is also surprisingly healthy for our bodies. Locals have often called this plant the “King of the Herbs.”
With 17 years of experience, Ms. Huang has converted a form of traditional farming into a functional organic farm initially with the help of infamous pastry chef Wu Bao Chun.
Through her passion, she has taken raw ingredients and converted these organic plants into our everyday processed foods such as pine nut basil sauce. Her passion and experience make her the top producer in providing organic basil.

ChangAn Noodle Shop – Mr. Wu
Mr. Wu has insisted on making noodles through the traditional way, which has been passed down for 60 years in his family. The dough is made of high protein flour with no additives. After, these noodles are rolled and rerolled and are air-dried under the blistering sun and wind. The work of making noodles is tedious and labor-intensive but is a form of respect to the family recipe. The spirit in insisting the noodles are made this way is an attitude found in the children of Pingtung. In your next bowl of noodles from our kitchen, not only will you taste noodles, but the work and craftsmanship put into the making of these noodles.
