Celebrity Chef Gabe Kennedy, the winner of the American Broadcasting Company’s (ABC) cooking reality competition series “The Taste,” has been invited to Taiwan on a culinary journey.   

Gabe Kennedy, a private chef living in Brooklyn, New York, won the third season of the reality show in 2015, and was deemed America’s best undiscovered cook by celebrity chefs such as Anthony Bourdain, Nigella Lawson, Marcus Samuelsson and Ludo Lefebvre.   

Kennedy’s culinary experience started as early as the age of 14, and had begun honing his skills with American chef and restaurateur David Bouley by the age of 18. He soon built up considerable achievements by being a private chef for a number of tastemakers and dignitaries, including the Clinton Family.

Kennedy is known for his advocacy for environmental causes and skills to blend culture and sustainability into cuisine.

The noted chef is currently in Taiwan at the invitation of the nation’s Tourism Bureau, for a journey to explore the beauty of local food, as well as to promote indigenous cuisine.

While in Taiwan, he will visit the Atayal tribe to experience the nation’s indigenous food culture, and later on Yilan’s organic tea farm for a hands-on tea pastry lesson. He will also visit Wushi Harbor in Yilan to look for the best local and in season seafood specialties.
