Product description

Review

"...thrilling, enjoyable and essential reading." --Anthony Bourdain

"Flavors of Indonesia is essential for any food lover wishing to learn, understand and cook authentic Indonesian cuisine. Recipes include long-forgotten dishes from obscure villages across the vast culinary landscape of the archipelago of Indonesia. William is the perfect culinary guide whose knowledge and passion are evident on every page." --Bobby Chinn, chef, restaurateur & TV presenter

"Food is culture and the best cookbooks are those that combine culinary culture with excellent recipes, which is exactly what William Wongso's Flavors of Indonesia does. Add to this tremendous photography of markets, produce and each of the recipes, and you have a beautiful cookbook that offers the reader a perfect introduction to Indonesia's culinary riches." --Anissa Helou, food writer & chef

"If Indonesian food culture has a voice, it would be spoken through Wiliam and inked here..." --KF Seetooh, Makansutra Singapore

"This book is a masterpiece, a feast for the senses, a tribute to the traditional authentic flavors that are synonymous with the Indonesian archipelago ... An essential reference for enthusiastic cooks everywhere who are keen to learn more about this vibrant cuisine." --Christine Manfield, chef, author, food and travel writer

"William Wongso invites you to his homeland and provides us with a deeper understanding of the authentic foods of Indonesia û traditional recipes and modern interpretations both with detailed, yet concise recipes." --Chef Robert Danhi, Award Winning Author of Southeast Asian Flavors, and TV Show Host of Taste of Vietnam

"William Wongso's cookbook, Flavors of Indonesia, is no less than a tour de force. In addition to it being an amazing collection of authentic recipes from throughout the immense Indonesian Archipelago--and gorgeously illustrated--it is laced with fascinating and extensive narrative. --Joan Peterson, President of Ginkgo Press, and author of Eat Smart in Indonesia

"William Wongso's name is well-known all over Indonesia and abroad: in Southeast Asia and the USA. He is an expert in many aspects of Indonesian cuisine. He has extensive knowledge of the regional foods of Indonesia. This book is his attempt to make public his knowledge of a subject he loves and is very passionate about." --Sri Owen, author of Noodles: The New Way, and The Indonesian Kitchen

About the Author

William Wongso is a household name in Indonesia, known for his culinary expertise and the popular TV show William Wongso's Culinary Adventures. His pursuit to master his country's traditional cuisines began in 1972 with the opening of a bakery in downtown Jakarta, and continues today, in his role as chef and restauranteur. Through the years, Wongso's persistent hunger for more knowledge and skills has taken him to the great culinary schools around the world, including Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and the 'Ecole des Arts Culinaires et de l'Hotellerie in Lyon. He has also held the roles of President of the Indonesian chapter of the international gastronomic society Chaine des Rotisseurs, and President of the Jakarta chapter of the International Wine and Food Society.

Wongso serves as a culinary adviser to Garuda Indonesia and leads the Food Diplomacy Program endorsed by the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Ministry of Trade. Part of the mission of the program is to bring 30 Indonesian traditional culinary icons onto the global stage.

Born to a Chinese-mainland immigrant father who was a personal photographer of Indonesian President Soekarno as well as an avid cook, Wongso was raised in Surabaya, a city with major culinary credentials, where he enjoyed a childhood steeped in the best of both worlds -- that of his Chinese heritage and that of his East Javanese localized heritage. He remains a passionate traveler who loves exploring Indonesia's myriad villages as much as he enjoys seeking pleasures in the most unlikely places in the world.
