Troy Kao, chairman of Taipei Bakery Association, and Yu-yen Chien, commissioner of Taipei City Government’s Department of Information and Tourism, presented “Taipei Sweet Heart building”. It is hoped that this would create a new taste of Taipei and make “Taipei Sweet Heart” an international famous souvenir.
Kao notes that, pineapple cake competition has been held for ten consecutive years. It is also known as “Legend of Taipei golden brick”. In recent years, nougat has also become a famous souvenir for foreigners. Therefore, cooperating with Taipei City Government, Taipei Bakery Association created “Taipei Sweet Heart”. The purpose of this competition is to create a brand new side of nougat.
According to Chien, using the tongue to communicate with the food is the simplest and sweetest way to know a city. Last year, Department of Information and Tourism and Taipei Bakery Association co-hosted “Taipei Cakes”. This year, “Taipei Sweet Heart” competition is being hosted. It is hoped that this new taste of Taipei will capture visitors’ hearts. Memory of Taipei trip will be brought with visitors instead of fading away.
