台灣的好客程度遠近馳名,但你在送外國客戶或朋友伴手禮時,只說得出traditional snack嗎?麥芽餅、牛軋糖、鐵蛋等你知道要怎麼跟外國朋友介紹嗎?小V整理了台灣10個名產的英文,每個都好想手刀買來吃!

1.鳳梨酥  pineapple cake / shortcake / pastry

「鳳梨」的台語有「好運到」的意思,所以我們常在過年過節時互相贈送鳳梨酥。現在市售的鳳梨酥有兩種內餡:冬瓜和鳳梨,冬瓜內餡的鳳梨酥比較甜,口感較綿密;鳳梨內餡的鳳梨酥比較有鳳梨的酸味,口感也比較紮實。

In Taiwanese, the word for “pineapple” sounds similar to the phrase, “here comes prosperity” , so pineapples have come to symbolize good luck and fortune. We buy pineapple cakes for each other during Chinese New Year.

They usually come with two kinds of fillings: white gourd and pineapple. The ones with white gourd fillings are sweeter, softer, and more creamy to the taste, whereas the other kind comes in a more solid texture and contains the natural sour taste of pineapples.

3.綠豆椪 mung bean pastry

台灣傳統月餅的一種,內餡是綠豆泥,有時會加入豬肉,但近年來因為健康考量,漸漸地全部都用綠豆泥了。

The mung bean pastry is one kind of traditional Taiwanese mooncake. The filling consists mostly of mashed mung bean, and sometimes pork. To promote a healthier diet, the mung bean pastry makers have almost replaced all of the pork fillings with mung bean.

The round-shaped taro pastry has a crispy crust that wraps up the taro mush filling. Soft and smooth in texture, taro was a staple of the Taiwanese diet in early times, and remains as a popular and well-loved food among older people.

5.牛軋糖 nougat

牛軋糖其實是義大利人發明,後來傳入台灣後,台灣人加入奶粉當做主原料,形成獨樹一幟的台式牛軋糖。

To most people’s surprise, the nougat actually originated in Italy. After setting its roots in Taiwan, the nougat has evolved into a different form, including milk powder as its main ingredient; the variation has later become the signature Taiwanese-style nougat.

While their dark color might seem scary at first, iron eggs have worked their way into foreigners’ appetites with their unique chewy texture and rich soy sauce flavor.

7.魷魚絲  dried shredded squid

台灣人的下酒零食之一,很有咬勁,越咬越香,吃到最後還會有甜甜的味道浮現喔!
