Sri Owen’s Indonesian Food is the most comprehensive account of this ancient and varied cuisine ever published.

The recipes are easy to follow and have fascinating introductions which place them in their regional and cultural settings.

Part two explains theessential ingredients and techniques of Indonesian cooking, with notes on availability and substitutions and discussions of modern developments, again with the relevant recipes and variations to accompany each technique.
