Product description


Memories and mentorship take Lara Lee on an intriguing journey into Indonesia's food. This piece of paradise, made up of 17,000 islands, is definitely where I would go to discover new tantalizing flavours. I would start with Lara's fragrant chicken soup (soto ayam), do lots of exploring on the way whilst dousing everything with spoonfuls of sambal, and end with her coconut and pandan sponge cake (kue pandan dan kelapa)

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.
