This dark, bitter dessert has a propitious name that sounds like "back to zero", perfect for celebrating zero new cases of COVID-19 in Taiwan!

Earlier this month, Taiwan began celebrating days on which there are ZERO new cases of COVID-19. We’ve seen a full month of no new domestic cases and at least a week of no cases at all. In today's Feast: a look at foods we've been using to celebrate!


Today’s menu: In our first course, we’ll tell you about some of the symbolic foods that people are eating to celebrate zero new cases. In our second course we’ll tell you about a refreshing summer treat whose name sounds like "back to zero": Guilingao! But the name has the Chinese word for “turtle in it”… does it actually contain turtle?? In our third and final course, we’ll be sampling that treat right here in the studio.
