Cooking the Indonesian Way serves up tantalizing recipes for pork sate, gado-gado, fried bananas, and more. Seasoned liberally with vibrant, color photographs and easy, step-by-step directions, many of the recipes are low in fat and call for ingredients you may already have at home. Also included are vegetarian recipes, complete menu suggestions, and a cultural section highlighting the Indonesian people and their country, holidays, festivals -- and, of course, their food. This book will show you how to treat yourself, your family, and your friends to delicious, authentic Indonesian meals.
