Getting psyched for Indonesia . . .

christina z Jun 23, 1999 06:59 AM

On July 29th I'm leaving for a month-long journey
throughout Indonesia (remote locations mostly).
What culinary adventures should I seek out or expect?
I've done my reading but would like to hear firsthand
accounts. Thanks.

    no personal experience whatever to report, but have
    you looked at Sri Owen's books, particularly
    Indonesian Regional Cooking? In addition to providing
    recipes, she systematically describes, not always
    flatteringly, the cuisine circa 1995 of the various
    islands and regions of Indonesia.

      Thanks Jen.

      To everyone else . . .

      HELP! I'm seeking comments on personal experience
      with Indonesian cuisine.
