A Taste of Indonesia

Posted on 24 July 2012
By eating in Indonesia one takes in the essence of the country, as no other nation is so well represented by its cuisine. The abundance of rice reflects Indonesia’s fertile landscape, the spices are reminiscent of a time of trade and invasion, and the fiery chili echoes the passion of the people. Indonesian cuisine is really one big food swap. Chinese, Portuguese, Dutch colonists and traders have all influenced the ingredients that appear on the Indonesian table, and the cuisine has been shaped over time by the archipelago’s diverse landscape, peoples, and cultures.
 
From the sweet graceful taste of Yogyakarta and Central Java, the fresh Sea Food of Makassar and Bali, to the fiery spices of the legendary Padang Food, Indonesia is truly a paradise of tastes.
