Description: "The beauty of Taste of Indonesia is that Helena Soedjak solves all of our Indonesia-related deficiencies in one fell swoop. She tells us about the history. The culture. And the food. Indeed, she tells us a great deal about her native land and its peoples, from the great temple of Borobudur to the native craft called Batik. And she not only communicates her love of Indonesian cuisine, but she shows us how to prepare and serve a great many (93, to be exact) dishes, from soup (vegetable coconut soup, for instance) to nuts (how about gado-gado salad with peanut dressing)." 

"Sorry there aren't scratch and sniff panels so you can start salivating over Indonesian barbecue ribs before you actually cook them. And we haven't yet perfected the toll-free phone service where you can listen to the publisher banging out Javanese hit songs on his gamelan. Perhaps by the third printing; stand by" 

"No, come to think of it, don't stand by. Ambulate into your kitchen, and begin the modest but immensely fulfilling labors that will result in you and your family, friends, or dinner guests experiencing the absolutely splendid taste of Indonesia."
