Lin Ming-tsan, a leading “zone pro site” (總舖師 Bando master chef) and one of the culinarians who helped with the making of movie “The Moveable Feast” (2013). Actually, “The Moveable Feast” was a story based on Lin Ming-tsan own life. He is the son of Lin Tian-Sheng 林添盛 (1934-2010), perhaps the most famous banquet chef in postwar Taiwan, and a man dubbed “a national treasure.”
Lin believes he is the only banquet chef in the country who still arranges and cooks in the old bando manner, and is acknowledged as “A Master Who Recreates Old Favors“. He shares his knowledge and experience in “Yamicook” Kitchen on a regular basis.
“I carry the torch to continue my father’s legacy”
– Lin says.

“The Moveable Feast” – a successful Taiwanese film
Bando, literally meaning “to set tables,” is not just about foods, but about a unique experience offered to guests. Taiwan-style catered banquet at wedding ceremonies, celebrations of birthdays of local deities, and other social gatherings is still popular. The settings could be on side streets, private properties, or other public spaces.
Zone Pro Site (總舖師 “Bandoh master chef”), also known as Zone Pro Site: The Moveable Feast, is a 2013 Taiwanese comedy film directed by Chen Yu-hsun, starring Lin Mei-hsiu, Tony Yang and Kimi Hsia.
What is Zone Pro Site? Speaking of Taiwan’s indigenous gastronomic culture, it is best represented by Ban-doh (辦桌), an outdoor banquet. Such an event can be traced back to the agricultural age. At that time restaurants and hotels were few and far between, so wedding receptions and all sorts of feasts usually took place in outdoor spaces or tents. With a couple of simple stoves and long tables as kitchen countertops, every dish was done on the spot. The person in charge of the menu and the procedures was called Zone Pro Site(總舖師),meaning catering chef in Taiwanese. During Ban-doh, Zone Pro Site arrived with nothing but his cooking utensils and he had to show his creativity by coming up with different menus based on the theme of each feast and the ingredients provided. The greatest challenge for Zone Pro Site was, of course, to serve dishes both hosts and guests would fully enjoy. If the food could satisfy the most critical guests, Zone Pro Site would earn respect and become a legendary master chef.
