Taipei, March 15 (CNA) The Taiwan Academy in Los Angeles is currently hosting a free food exhibition at its gallery, showcasing six of the country's popular dishes and beverages.

According to the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) in Los Angeles, the exhibition, titled "Taste Taiwan: Taiwanese Delicacies and Food Literature," focuses on the relationship between food and literature, and will feature Taiwan's famous bubble tea, railway bento boxes, minced pork rice, grilled sausage, popped rice, and spring rolls.

Between March 6 and April 23, the gallery is providing an audiovisual experience for visitors, with short video excerpts and photographs by three prominent food writers -- Jiao Tong (焦桐), Han Liang-lu (韓良露) and Han Liang-yi (韓良憶) -- who have all written about the foods on display.

Visitors can buy bubble tea and bento boxes at the gallery after their visit as part of the Taiwan Academy's partnership with Lollicup Fresh, an Asian-themed restaurant chain, to promote Taiwanese cuisine in Los Angeles.

The Taiwan Academy will also host two forums in April, attended by prominent food writers and professors in the area, to talk about the food and food culture in Taiwan.

The events are catered, so that attendees will be able to taste each of the six dishes featured.

More details about the forums, to be hosted April 6 and April 13, will be made available on the Taiwan Academy's Facebook page.
