Overview

Capture the spirit of Indonesia-a colorful country between the Indian Ocean and the South Pacific-by making these easy country recipes and crafts. Find out about some of Indonesia's unique animals, plants, and festivals as you cook and craft your way through the country. Learn the many ways that Indonesians prepare rice, and find out how to make their favorite "fast food." Sculpt a venomous Komodo dragon, a reptile that can run faster than many people can ride a bike. Make a rain stick and a paper flower to celebrate the rain forest. Put on a shadow puppet show for your family and friends with a puppet of the evil King Ramayana, then put it to music with the musical instruments you make from ordinary household supplies.

Indonesian artisans weave fabric with designs so intricate it takes them months, sometimes years, to finish. Now you can try your hand at weaving, too. You can also dye a T-shirt using the ancient art of batik.

With a few art supplies, a large bag of rice, and a dash of curiosity, you can host your own Indonesian selamatan (party)!

    Indonesia education in a fun format

    Kayleen Reusser used research and her daughter, Amanda Reusser (a teacher in Indonesia) to gather information for this book. Amanda is recognized as co-author in the About the Authors page of "Recipe and Craft Guide to Indonesia."
    Author Reusser includes several easy but authentic recipes and crafts. Ages 9 through 90 will enjoy this activity filled read. To demonstrate its use friendliness, a group of youth was asked to test the recipes and crafts. Photos of their activity are included in the pages.
    Every page is filled with bright color and photos equal to the cover design. Food or craft activity segments also provide Indonesian history, culture, language, facts, and photos of Indonesian people.
    One particularly good recipe is Fried Noodles (Mee Goreng) which is traditionally made with Hokkien noodles, red chilies, and shrimp. Variations are offered with egg noodles, chicken, milder peppers or elimination of the chilies. This reviewer plans to cook a Pepper Salad with Sesame Seeds (Timor Achar) next. Indonesia is a spicy and beautiful country through its foods and crafts.
    Many of the craft supplies are found in the home, such as coffee filters for Rafflesia blooms, oatmeal box for a Bali Gamelan Music Drum, and straws for an "ikat" Indonesian woven scarf.
    Author, Kayleen Reusser, lives in Indiana, and has written several other books. This book receives top (5-star) marks from a retired art teacher and lover of spicy foods.
