World Food: Indonesia (Lonely Planet World Food Guides Series)by Patrick Witton
Open wide and sink your teeth into Lonely Planet's new World Food guides. Whether you're hungry for adventure, or a steaming bowl of Vietnamese pho, these guides will satisfy your every craving. Written in an entertaining and opinionated style, these are the definitive culinary guides to the world's major travel destinations. They are an indispensable reference for both adventurous cooks and travellers trying to eat their way through unfamiliar menus and markets. With tantalizing photography throughout, they are also a feast for the eyes.
The pocket-size World Food guides serve up heaping portions of information on everything to do with eating and drinking in a country. They cover the history and evolution of the cuisine, its staples and specialties, and the kitchen philosophy of the people. Lonely Planet opens the doors on home cooking and traditions, showing how food and drink have become integral to personal and national celebrations, and discovering the myriad of regional cuisines that exist in even the most familiar countries.
Thousands of islands. Thousands of flavors. The boldness of buffalo curry. The beauty of Balinese food offerings. This is the cuisine of Indonesia: a realm of flavors that stretches from mountain gardens, through manic markets, across the Spice Islands and into the pages of this culinary guide. Prepare to explore what feeds this diverse nation, a country where fruit is as fresh as the land, and chillies are as hot as the hospitality.
