Liz Kao Founder
Liz Kao is one of the most trusted food critics in Taiwan. Once a practicing lawyer, Liz combines her logical thinking and passion for food into a unique style of food writing, documenting the growth and development of Taiwan’s dining scene in the past decade. She has interviewed many great chefs in the world and frequently visits important culinary events including the World’s 50 Best Restaurants, Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, Michelin Guide launches and more.
Known as “Self-taught Gourmet” in social media platforms, Liz’s work is widely read and respected by the F&B industry in Taiwan; her website “Taster” is one of the few online media in Taiwan that dedicates to food and dining. Her book “Liz’s Keywords,” which explains foodie culture, fine dining, culinary guides and Taiwan’s food scene, has gained wide recognition and is considered a “textbook” for food lovers. In 2020, Liz founded an e-commerce platform “Taster Selection,” which further expands her reach from content to merchandise.
Liz is one of the contributors to Louis Vuitton Taipei City Guide; she also won 2016 Taiwan Design Best 100 “Best Platform for Art and Design”, and is recently listed among 2019 Asia Tatler Generation T.
