Crazy Kids Kitchen

Crazy Kids Kitchen is opening!
In order to make creative dishes, the owner has recruited a group of young chefs and sent them to learn to cook all over Taiwan. Not only to learn the traditional Hakka cuisine, but also to transform it into creative cuisine! In the end, it’s time for them to show their cooking, and the finicky experts are ready to grade their creative dishes strictly.
The preserved radish egg is a common homemade dish for the Hakka people. With the delicious salty preserved radish, the fried egg tastes better. In order to create the best "Preserved radish egg", our young chef, Black Cat, decides to add some chocolate in it! However, the young chefs are not skillful enough. They turn the black chocolate into a real dark cuisine. But that’s what our show is about. With persistence, Chef Black Cat keeps trying and turns the dish into a Japanese omelet of a Hakka kid.
Whether these cuisines with kids' creatives can win professional judges' appreciation?

Director Biography - Ting-rong Tzeng

Director Statement

Food is one of the best ways to realize the culture. However, we’ve found that the young people are not familiar to "Hakka dishes". They don’t even like the Hakka dishes much. During our field research, the kids didn’t know what to do, which was a shame that surprised me. What seems to be a common dish is a different world for teenagers.
So we got the idea of turning the Hakka dishes into something they like!
From understanding cuisine to refashioning it, then eventually present a creative dish that may get reprimanded by the grandmas, who also watching the show. The dream cuisine that they can also identify with. Whether the judges love it or not, it’s an amazing journey to them after all.
Hopefully, with the show, we’ll help young people know the Hakka dishes and enjoy cooking, and believe they have the ability to refashion them at the same time.
