Additional Details

Description: Here is the first book of authentic Indonesian recipes to be prepared specifically for use in the American kitchen. Indonesia is an archipelago of more than three thousand islands stretching from Sumatra in the west to New Guinea in the east and including, most significantly, that special group known as the Spice Islands. 

Recently, a passion for culinary adventure has awakened the American palate and sent the American cook in search of new cuisines to conquer. Now, The Indonesian Kitchen brings to the American home one of the great (lining experiences of Asia. Boasting four great external influences -- Indian, Chinese, Arab and Dutch Colonial -- Indonesian cooking is richer, spicier and more varied than any other Asian cuisine. 

Based upon the rijsttafel, which offers small quantities of various dishes, many of which can be prepared in advance, the Indonesian style of eating provides a refreshing and practical departure for those seeking innovative entertainment menus.
