Overview

    The third in the EAT SMART series is a comprehensive, readable survey of the whole scope of Indonesian gastronomy. It confers savvy to partake as fully and gloriously of Indonesian food as desired and is essential reading for any “foodie” visiting this vast archipelago.
    The newest (and third) guide in this authoritative series Eat Smart in Indonesia: How to Decipher the Menu, Know the Market Foods & Embark on a Tasting Adventure is a paean to Indonesian cuisine. It contains a rich historical perspective on the origins and varieties of Indonesian food and extensive background on the delectable regional dishes. Indonesian phrases are included to make one’s culinary adventure even more successful. At the core of the book are two extensive glossaries in Indonesian with English translations. The “Menu Guide” demystifies food selection, allowing visitors to order with confidence in restaurants; the “Foods & Flavors Guide” is a comprehensive list of foods, spices, cooking utensils, cooking styles, etc., to make shopping in the colorful outdoor markets easy and fun.
    Authors Joan and David Peterson (inveterate travelers, cooks, seekers of unusual herbs and spices, and new ways to prepare familiar ingredients) have added a delicious bonus by providing a chapter of recipes for travelers to preview the tastes before departure, thus broadening the guide’s appeal to cookbook lovers as well.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Soundly researched, clearly written, artistically illustrated, Eat Smart in Indonesia is the most comprehensive and readable survey of the whole scope of Indonesian gastronomy I have ever come across. It is equally valuable as a solid reference work for the scholar and as exotic inspiration for the chef or home entertainer."—Bill Dalton, Founder, Moon Travel Guides and author of Indonesian Handbook

“This is a lovely book, full of knowledge and wisdom, a pleasure to read, an indispensable companion for travellers who care about what they’re eating. If you are only thinking of going, cook some of these Indonesian recipes and taste the islands for yourself. I only wish there were a guidebook like this for every country where people still know how to eat well.”—Sri Owen, author of Indonesian Regional Cooking

Eat Smart in Indonesia is a must-read offering a wealth of practical information for travelers and armchair travelers alike interested in experiencing Indonesian food. The book is chocked full of solid tips and advice that takes the guesswork out of unfamiliar foods. Never before has a book taken a reader straight into the heart of a country’s cuisine.”—Shannon Roxborough, A Taste of Asia: The Quarterly Newsletter of Eastern Culinary Arts

“For a country of 17,000 islands and 670 dialects, and complex traditions, religion and culture, no one—including Indonesians—can claim to know more about Indonesia’s traditional food tastes than the authors of Eat Smart in Indonesia. Their guide is the first ever published with in-depth information about the unique and diverse food of Indonesia.”—William W. Wongso, culinary educator, president of William F & B Management, Jakarta, Java

Meet the Author

Joan and David Peterson are experienced, world-wide travelers. They have led tours to the Pacific Rim, the Caribbean, Europe, and Australia. They also have explored extensively on their own, concentrating on the cuisines of the countries they visit. Because general guidebooks—despite their hefty size—provide too little information about food for their taste, the Petersons tackled the subject themselves, providing in-depth information for others with a similar travel focus.
