葡萄酒配台菜-老饕搶嘗鮮

魏瑀嫻 /編譯

在歐美的正式用餐場合通常會搭配萄萄酒,但你曾試過用葡萄酒搭配台灣菜嗎?新英格蘭台灣青年商會日前舉行「當葡萄酒遇上台菜」活動,以五種來自不同地區的葡萄酒搭配經典台灣小吃,網路早鳥票很快搶購一空,有40餘人參加。

主辦單位表示,葡萄酒原是歐洲各地風土文化的縮影,也是一種生活品味與熱情的個人主張;在全球化的今日,餐飲文化早已打破地理的疆界,世界各地都在探索更多葡萄酒與食物搭配的靈感。以台菜搭配葡萄酒,在台灣正蔚為風潮。對於在美國生活的台灣人而言,也是對家鄉飲食文化的重新思考。此次活動從台灣人最熟悉的小吃出發,讓大家在熟悉又新奇的感官體驗中輕鬆認識葡萄酒,進而可以在日常餐桌和社交場合自在飲用葡萄酒、並更有自信將台灣飲食介紹給主流社會。

活動由對美食素有研究的青商會幹部魏瑀嫻和丈夫李務熙一手包辦選酒,從久久台北和木蘭台菜兩家餐廳選擇搭配的餐點。現場李務熙負責侍酒。主講的魏瑀嫻說,台灣飲食非常多元,傳統是各種口味的菜色同時上桌,本次活動為了強調每一支酒的特質,模仿西餐一種酒搭配一組餐點,確保酒與食物都以最適當的溫度登場,但仍保留大桌共食的中餐吃法。

首先端出的是美國加州氣泡酒搭配鹹酥雞和臭豆腐,強烈的氣泡與油炸食物的香酥緊密結合,臭豆腐的發酵味和附餐泡菜的酸甜,也與氣泡酒的滋味絲絲相扣,博得眾人驚嘆;第二道以義大利托斯卡尼海鮮風味白酒搭配涼拌花枝;第三道是葡萄牙的粉紅酒搭配帶有甜味的台式香腸與煙燻味燒雞;第四道用單寧厚重的烏拉圭紅酒搭配包有滷五花肉、酸菜、香菜與花生粉的台式刈包;最後則以來自法國北隆河地區帶有胡椒香味的紅酒,搭配佐以蔥和白胡椒的酥炸肥腸。

第一次參加品酒場合的律師蔡宜蓁,剛從波士頓大學研究所畢業,她對於主持人如何尋找小吃與酒搭配靈感的過程印象最深刻。新英格蘭玉山科技協會會長康麗雪、董事凌美秀、王本仁都盛讚酒食美味又長知識,希望以後可以擴大舉辦。

WeMeet Series—臺灣人才流動與青年在臺北創業的契機 暨《志氣-為人才而戰》紀錄片分享會

Logo_WeMeet

Time: 7pm-9:30pm, Wednesday, July 09, 2014
Location: 
MIT Building 4, Room 4-163 182 Memorial Dr., Cambridge, MA
RSVP: 
https://www.facebook.com/events/665266153566443/

有人說臺灣回不去了。我們真的回不去臺灣嗎?

臺灣被預估將成為人才斷層最嚴重的國度。在世界各國無不以龐大資源爭才、育才、將人才提升至國家戰略的此際,台灣如何提供更好的土壤,讓人才的志氣茁壯?面對巨變,台灣下一波人才勢力如何盤整?

7月9日星期三晚上7:00在MIT 4-163教室, 青商會與MIT ROCSA邀請到在臺北力推青年職涯發展、幸福企業的臺北市政府勞動局陳業鑫局長,談臺灣人才流動與青年在臺北創業的契機。會中並將播放之前曾來MIT、哈佛訪問拍攝的天下雜誌《志氣-為人才而戰》紀錄片,看波士頓的我們能為臺灣做什麼、看臺灣能讓我們做什麼。

講者:陳業鑫
臺北市政府勞動局局長

摘自2011年7月12日,天下雜誌476期:
「從協助背債兒到弱勢勞工,從法官變身勞工局長,陳業鑫不怕「跳火坑」,寧願放棄較高的法官薪資與福利,跳下來為弱勢發聲。
臺北市勞工局走在中央主管機關勞委會之前,除了公布讓員工超時工作的九家違法知名企業名單,更率先針對三十八項「爆肝」行業,預告訂定最高工時上限,進行規範。
台北市勞工局的積極作為,讓許多企業CEO積極推動減少工時方案,也引起五都在勞工事務上的競合,向勞委會爭取下放更多勞動安全檢查的權力。
引發這把中央與地方勞政機關競合的燎原星火,是由年僅三十九歲、法官出身的台北市勞工局長陳業鑫所點燃。」

活動免費,open to public。

《賽德克‧巴萊》是台灣在地電影工業有史以來最大的投資,2011電影上映時,不僅在台灣,同時也在亞洲與世界各地造成風潮。本次演講將聚焦這部電影,進一步討論電影本身所披露的台灣後殖民狀況。電影以1930年霧社歷史事件為題材,本身是一部歷史電影,但霧社事件的政治性也因此賦予了電影深刻的政治意涵。演講將以電影敘述與其美學表現為主軸,討論電影如何描繪一個消失的部族,以及這一描繪對於當前台灣可能帶來的政治效應。

講者李育霖為哈佛大學訪問學者、中興大學台灣文學與跨國文化研究所副教授,主要研究領域包括台灣文學、比較文學、華語電影研究、翻譯研究等。著有專書Writing Taiwan: A Study of Taiwan’s Nativist Literature (2008)、《翻譯閾境
──主體、倫理、美學》(2009)。並譯有《德勒茲論文學》一書(2006)。

This March, we are very honored to invite Dr. Yu-lin Lee, the visiting Taiwanese literature scholar at Harvard University, to be our WeMeet guest speaker.

WeMeet #7: Intro to Architecture

Logo_WeMeet Time: August 15, 2013 (Thur) 7:00 – 8:30 PM
Location:
ARC
5 Cambridge Center
Cambridge, MA 02142

Speaker: Ben Wang, AIA, Principal at Architectural Resources Cambridge

Moderator: Ming-Jen Hsueh, Landscape Architect at Sasaki Associates

Moderator: Zor Lee, Architect at NBBJ

Host: Ellen Kuo, Structural Engineer at SMMA

A building creates an identity in the surrounding environment and represents the vision of its owner and designers. Architects-they transform occupancy needs into conceptual design incorporating all elements and details; coordinate with engineers and designers to issue construction documents complying to codes and regulations; and work with the construction team to erect building structure meeting budget, deadlines and quality standards. The primary role of architects in a project is to act as a leader to coordinate with all disciplines to design and issue documents in a holistic approach. Encompassing all aspects of a project into consideration, architects study building’s functionality and durability, while at the same, integrate aesthetic appeal.

Ben Wang, Principal at Architectural Resources Cambridge, will show you what architects do other than cad drafting and scale-model building. Graduated from Harvard Graduate School of Design in 1976, he has almost 40 years of experience in architecture and is an active member of both American Institute of Architects and Boston Society of Architects. Ben will give us a tour of ARC, share his background and experiences, and present his on-going project- NMR Thai Buddhist Temple in Raynham, MA. To learn more about history, art and key elements of architecture, please join us on Thursday, August 15th. Please visit the Facebook event page https://www.facebook.com/events/1406398866240205/ and RSVP via https://wemeet7.eventbrite.com/ to be on the guest list.
