After Guang-chi Hsiao graduated from junior high school, he immediately went to learn how to cook Hunan cuisines, even though he couldn’t even tell garlic and scallion apart. He was all by himself in Taipei, and he even slept on chairs though the weather was cold. That’s how Guang-Chi Hsiao teenager was like. Afterwards, he went to learn from the well-know “Chef Tsuigei,” and became a chef when he turned 27. He realized that one must pay much more efforts than others to achieve success, and that nothing is more important than being good, righteous, and real.
Life is like a long river which elutriates his rations out by time. Now he is a teacher himself, and he always tells the students to set up a firm foundation so that they can build up a tower after stepping into the society. As an associate professor, Guang-Chi Hsiao has lead the cooking team from De Lin Institute of Technology to win the championship of professional team in the competition of Hakka cuisines for the Chinese New Year that held in Taipei World Trade Center. Nothing’s more cheerful than this for a teacher.

聞名全省的竹山富州獨特的黑柿 （又稱一點紅） 番茄，品質香脆可口一級棒，它與眾不同的是，當果實成熟時，果皮顏色會出現濃綠肩，且在轉色期會有「一點紅」的特性。它的果實質地清脆、口感好，加上台味沾醬（醬油膏、味霖、紅糖、甘草粉），創意口感十足。
The black tomato (red-spot tomato) from Fujhou community, Jhushan Township is well-known in Taiwan. The skin of the tomato is crunchy and tasty. What makes it more special is that when the fruits are getting ripe, the skin will be dark green first but then the red spot will appear. The fruit is crunchy and goes amazingly delicious with Taiwanese sauce (a mixture of thick soy sauce, mirin, brown sugar, and licorice powder).
It is stated in some researches that tomatoes contains anti-oxidant and lycopene, which can effectively prevent prostate cancer and avoid sunburn caused by ultraviolet. The heated or boiled tomatoes can release even more lycopene. Some researchers even extract substances from tomatoes to treat hypertension.
