Centered on Taipei magazine: Hostess gifts

Ever been invited to someone’s home for dinner in Taiwan and wondered what to bring?  Or have you wondered why Taiwanese friends prefer going out rather than inviting friends to their place for a dinner party?

May COT magazine cover

The May issue of Centered on Taipei magazine is out now.  On page 16 there is an ‘Ask Taiwanxifu’ article that deals with the delicate question of what to bring when invited to dinner.  Do you offer to make a dessert?  Go pot-luck?  Or give a red envelope?

Actually, none of the above.  But you will have to read the article to find out.

About taiwanxifu

‘Taiwanxifu’ (pronounced ‘shee foo’) means ‘Taiwan daughter-in-law’ in Chinese and has been my nickname ever since I married my Taiwanese husband, Sam. I love sampling Taiwanese food, even local specialties such as stinky tofu, pigs blood cake and Taipei beef noodle soup with offal. But there are many other options on the menu. Promise!
