A tailor-made foodie trip with Cox & Kings offers many chances to savour Taiwanese fare, as well as a day-long cookery course. At Jodie's Kitchen, on a hillside near Taipei, guests learn to make specialities such as sour-and-spicy soup, sesame noodles and Sichuan sweet-and-sour dressing. A tea ceremony, a visit to a Taiwanese bakery, a meal at an acclaimed dumpling house and an evening exploring the food stalls of Shilin Night Market are also part of the fun.
