每日跟讀#496: Taiwan’s ‘shaved ice’ among world’s top desserts: CNN

Which dessert best represents Taiwan? Instead of pearl milk tea, pineapple cakes or sun cakes, “xuehua ice” has been listed as one of the top 50 desserts in the world, according to an article by pastry chef-turned-food writer Jen Rose Smith on CNN. Xuehua ice (literally “snowflake ice”), a popular local frozen treat, is known as “shaved ice” or “snow ice” in English.

什麼是台灣最具代表性的甜點?不是珍珠奶茶,也不是鳳梨酥、太陽餅,而是被CNN列為全球五十大最佳甜點的「雪花冰」!該報導由點心廚師轉行美食作家的史密斯女士所撰寫。雪花冰是本地受歡迎的冰品,英文叫「shaved ice」或「snow ice」。

“Taiwanese snow ice is an invitation to get as creative as you’d like,” Smith wrote in her article, titled “50 of the World’s Best Desserts.” First, you need to shave the ice into a pile of crumbling ice flakes. Then, you can blend it with your favorite treats such as red bean paste and fresh fruit such as mangos, strawberries or pineapples, along with syrup, chocolate sauce or sweetened condensed milk.

史密斯在這篇名為《全球五十大最佳甜點》的文章裡寫道:「台灣的雪花冰簡直讓你的創意大爆發。」首先你要把冰刨成一堆細碎的雪花片,然後和你最喜愛的紅豆沙等配料混合在一起,加上芒果、草莓、鳳梨等新鮮水果,最後再淋上糖漿、巧克力醬或煉乳即可。

Other top Asian sweets chosen by the foodie include sesame balls in China, egg tarts in Hong Kong, light cheesecake in Japan, cendol in Singapore, sticky rice with mango and tub tim krob in Thailand, and gulab jamun and kulfi in India.

這位美食家選出的其它亞洲最佳甜點還包括:中國的芝麻球、香港的蛋塔、日本的輕乳酪蛋糕、新加坡的煎蕊(珍多冰)、泰國的芒果糯米飯和椰香石榴冰、印度的玫瑰漿果和牛奶雪糕…等。
