Description: Food and the preparation of food are an integral part of the lives of the Indonesian people. It is a time of community and a celebration of life, where recipes, traditions and techniques are handed down from one generation to the next.
When the author, Esly van de Weerdt, moved to America with her family in 1968, she brought with her all of the wonderful traditions she enjoyed as a child, growing up in Indonesia. Nowhere is this better represented than in her own kitchen. All of her children are grown now and have families of their own. But, it is her kitchen that will always be their home. It is where holiday memories are created. It is where her family instinctively gathers -- pitching in and catching up. Laughing and joking. It is the very fabric that holds her family so close.
Within the pages of this book, Esly will share with you some of her memories, offer insight into the Indonesian culture and attempt to convey the various nuances and exotic flavors of the Indonesian cuisine.
This book truly represents her love of food, her talents as a cook and her respect for tradition. But, moreover, this book is her legacy. A monument to her commitment for the preservation of family. Printed in the United States
