Can Can Route 3: Redesigning Preserved Hakka Food

Language Used / Song

This project integrates the “pickled, sauce, sun-dried” food preservation methods of traditional Hakka food culture with modern lifestyles. Time lies at the center of food preservation, and food that is preserved and fermented with time transforms the sense of treasuring resources into the flavors of the Hakka people. Titled “Can Can Route 3,” our eating habits in the age of the pandemic have moved closer to the wisdom of our ancestors. As we spend longer hours at home and more time outdoors via the Inner-Mountain Highway, food preservation and slow eating have become rituals of everyday life, symbolizing the wisdom and charm of Hakka food preservation and fermentation methods.
