Lara Lee shares beautiful stories and the food of her Indonesian heritage. With delicious recipes that showcase the diverse tastes of traditional Indonesian food, this is truly a cookbook worth discovering
I have travelled in Indonesia, a fascinating nation with an incredibly diverse yet barely known cuisine. It's packed with flavour, tradition and stories. Lara brings to life the food of Indonesia through her grandmother Popo's recipes with favourites that are absolutely delicious and easy to make. I, for one, will be making her peanut kerupuk again and again.
Lara Lee has written a heartfelt homage to her Indonesian culinary heritage, with an exciting and panoramic selection of dishes and snacks from all over the archipelago. The clear instructions and lively descriptions make this lavishly-flavoured cuisine both appealing and accessible.
I can only say how excited I am about a book which honours and distils the beautiful Indonesian cuisine and translates it for the contemporary cook.
I urge you to follow Lara's recipes and without a doubt, you will have an incredibly delicious Indonesian meal on your table every time. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

1) The author is authentic. The stories of her journeys and experiences that accompany her recipes makes the cookbook stand up on it's own as a book. It differentiates from many others that are simply a list of recipes. You can hear her speaking to you as you read her stories, which makes the book even more compelling.
2) You can obtain the ingredients! So many times I've made an attempt at an interesting recipe and I could not buy the ingredients that made the recipe, resulting in failed dishes and another cookbook left on the shelf. You don't have to be back packing around Indonesia to gather the critical ingredients before you start - they are in the supermarkets.
3) The author explains how to make the ingredients that are foundations of many recipes when they're not available to buy themselves.
4) Everything I have cooked so far works brilliantly, each delivering a great result without disappointment. That's fantastic considering how many recipes are here. My favourite at the moment is the kwetiau (pork and prawn rice noodles).
5) I love the set menu idea's at the end of the book, making it simple to put on a vegan or vegetarian dinner - or simply just to have a menu where all the dishes complement each other perfectly. Takes out the thinking of creating a menu if you're new to Indonesian cooking.
It's simply a great book, brings Indonesia into my kitchen in a modern, up-to-date and dare I say hip way that's just awesome. This book is setting a very high bar. Off now to make Nasi Goreng for lunch!
