Overview

Cook fresh and vibrant dishes with this friendly and instructive Indonesian cookbook.

Indonesian Cooking is Chef Dina Yuen's culinary exploration of the world's largest and most diverse archipelago—the fabled Spice Islands of Indonesia. Dina began her culinary career in Jakarta at the tender age of 12, when she begged her parents to enroll her in a culinary academy. She was not only accepted—but surprised everyone (her parents included) by preparing dishes which tasted better than those of her adult classmates! After returning the US, she began sharing her knowledge and passion for the foods of Indonesia as a chef, a writer, and through her website Asian-Fusion. com

The dishes in Indonesian Cooking range from the familiar Chicken and Beef Satays, Lumpia Spring Rolls, Fresh Steamed Vegetables with Peanut Dressing (Gado-Gado) and Nasi Goreng (Traditional Indonesian Fried Rice) to more exotic dishes like Spicy Lemongrass Beef, Burned Sugar Pork, Grilled Swordfish with Fragrant Yellow Rice, and Tamarind Roasted Prawns. Indonesian food is easy to make with ingredients readily found in any well-stocked supermarket. Bring the tastes of Indonesia home with the help of Indonesian Cooking!

Authentic Indonesian recipes include:

  • Chicken and Potato Croquettes
  • Oxtail Soup
  • Avocado and Smoked Salmon Salad
  • Banjar Chicken Steak
  • Grilled Swordfish with Fragrant Yellow Rice
  • Classic Nasi Goreng
  • Sambal Eggplant
  • Dutch-Indo Crepes with Palm Sugar
. Indonesian is a vibrant, multi-layered nation with a fabulous and largely unexplored cuisine—and these easy-to-follow recipes now make it accessible to everyone.
