【看CP學英文】艾瑞克．路透 (Erik Reuter)是一位美籍YouTuber, 以米粉 (“Rice Noodles”)名稱在YouTube上分享台灣文化。來自美國的他在2020年6月搬來台灣，而他也透露自己在近十年來其實經常會來台灣旅遊。
Erik Reuter, a YouTuber known as Rice Noodles, produces videos featuring Taiwanese culture. Originally from the United States, Erik moved to Taiwan in June 2020 but has visited Taiwan during the past ten years.
Having studied film and self-studied culinary arts, Erik often combines both elements in his videos.
For instance, in his most recent video, “Why are Taiwan crepes crunchy?” Erik embarks on a journey to compare the classic french crepe to its Taiwanese counterpart.
Erik hopes that his audience can learn or gain something from his videos, whether it is knowledge or mood elevation. His ultimate goal is to share Taiwan with the rest of the world.
Many ideas for his videos come from observing the world around him. “I make a conscious effort to always think as if it is the first day of my first trip here. That way everything is always new and exciting,” he said.
Erik draws inspiration from filmmakers and YouTubers, including Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, AVGN, JonTron, Casey Neistat, and many others.
He also mixes both classical training and youtube style filmmaking for his videos.
在與The China Post訪談中，艾瑞克也分享了自己最喜歡的台灣食物，其中包括大腸包小腸、大腸麵線、配稀飯的菜脯、珍珠奶茶、鳳梨酥和綠豆糕。
In an interview with The China Post, Erik shared some of his favorite Taiwanese foods, including Taiwanese sausage with sticky rice (大腸包小腸), intestine vermicelli (大腸麵線), salted-preserved radish, which he usually eats with porridge, boba milk tea (珍珠奶茶), pineapple cake and mung bean pastry (綠豆糕).
In the future, he hopes to work with more people around Taiwan, including firemen, restaurant workers, cabbies, emergency medical technicians, farmers, and more.
He also hopes to display their unique qualities and talents and help them tell their story.
Although the level three epidemic warning has affected Erik’s ability to meet people for filming and to capture B-roll outdoors, he has adapted to the situation.
Thus, Erik’s next video will be filmed indoors in his home and will be released in a few weeks’ time.
