Shoufeng is a town in Hualian County where even the rain up lifts spirits, and also where our two “rice magicians”, Qinghao and Huiyun live. They follow a Natural Farming philosophy, called Shumei Farming, to grow various kinds of rice. They transform rice into “Mitaimu”(rice stick noodle), Mifen(rice noodles), radish cakes, taro&rice cake, glutinous rice cake, glutinous rice balls, rice pudding,and maltose, etc. No more starch or flour, have a taste of purely rice-made delicacy, and find that original tender and texture of rice. Join us and give your taste buds a treat! We will be working on the farm, in the valley between the Central Mountains. We work, we cook, and focus on what we do, and then let our mind relax. Let us retreat to the essence of life, learn to appreciate rice, which Taiwanese culture and community prospered on. We will live with mother Nature, and be at the moment. You would wonder -Does rice have flower? What does radish look like in the fields? How many rice dishes could be made with various kinds of Taiwanese rice?

You will find all the answers here, lying in this wonderland of Taiwan.

Trip Highlights
[Sat. Nov.2,2019]
At 12:40 at noon, we meet at Shoufeng Train Station in Hualian. We start the day with traditional glutinous rice cake as lunch, prepared in a big steaming pot. Lunch end with rice pudding-made by ourselves! The climax starts with going through the country roads with Qinghao and Huiyun, and enter the radish field for some farm work! If a life in the countryside is what your heart longs for, feel free to have a taste of it.

In the evening the farmers will teach us how to use a gas stove to cook rice. We will also learn how to make sweet rice dumplings. It will be a chance to have our own “Top Chef” competition, with fresh ingredients from the farm. We might be prized with exceptional beautiful crescent moon and all the stars, shining in between the valleys.

[Sun. Nov.3,2019]
The next day we meet at 8am at Qinghao and Huiyun’s home. This is kinda late for a farmer’s routine already! Let’s roll up our sleeves and pants to get some radish planted!

After farming work, we will learn how to make radish cake and rice roll. you will get all the home-made skill from farmers! And these would be your delicious lunch.

After Lunch, we will make miso and umami enhancer together.Think about this:you could tell your friends and family that you are now a gourmet of Rice pudding,radish cake,Rice Roll,miso,Umami enhancer, and sweet rice dumplings! How awesome is that? (If they don’t know what you are talking about, show them! )

With our hand-made trophies, we say goodbye around 4 pm to go home.
