Almost everyone who visits Taiwan will fall in love with Taiwanese local cuisine. However, few may come close to Emilie’s love and interest for scallion pancakes.
After four months in Taiwan, Emilie has decided to learn how to cook scallion pancakes so that she can return to France with a new dish to popularize.
Back in France, most people eat sandwiches for lunch. Emilie hopes to introduce a new trend of eating scallion pancakes instead.
“[French] people usually take sandwiches to go for lunch, but I want to give them another option,” Emilie said in the YouTube video. “I saw a video of two girls trying to open a fried chicken stand in Europe that inspires me [to bring scallion pancakes to France].”
In the video, Emilie learns from a scallion pancake chef before she returns back to France.
“I want to thank Taiwan for taking care of me and the boss man who taught me how to make scallion pancakes,” Emilie said.
“It would be my honor to share this amazing dish with my people back home.”
