Description: Miss Fu Pei-Mei is a famous artist with the most distinquished background. In 1955, she established the Chinese Cooking Institute in Taipei. During the last two decades, more than ten thousand students have studied cooking under her direct guidance. 

In 1962 when television was first introduced to Taiwan, Pei-Mei started a Chinese cooking demonstration program at the invitation and sponsorship of Taiwan Television Company. This once-a-week culinary teaching program, which continues up to this day, has been deeply appreciated by countless housewife audiences. Later on, she assumed a membership in a committee, established by the Overseas Chinese Affairs Commission, for selecting qualified chefs to be employed overseas. She had acted as a judge of the Hong Kong Amateur Cooking Contest Committee. She was also asked by various governmental agencies to improve their mess services. 

Invitations from Japan, Hong Kong and other South Eastern Asian nations to demonstrate Chinese cuisine have been frequent and she has conducted video taped programs to explain and popularize Chinese dishes of Taiwan.
