[Picture of Taiwanese drama What She Put On The Table]

What She Put On the Table is a Taiwanese drama based on Fu Pei-Mei, considered the Julia Child of Taiwan. The drama itself seems to be based on a fictional book with biographical details and recipes from Fu. I’m only on episode 2 of this 6-episode miniseries but I’m quite enamored of it.

It has one of the most convoluted but adorable meet-cute I’ve ever seen. And since it’s about a chef’s life, there’s the occaisional food porn. The auntie/ah-ma/exasperated Taiwanese is A+++ and it looks like it’s going to be about food, family (real and found), all set in the tiny island my parents are from. I love it.
