Recently William Wongso also made headlines in Paris, France, at the Indonesian Culinary Festival.

Culinary tradition is an inseparable part of cultural heritage in Indonesia, formed from long lineage of local ingredients and cooking techniques. Innovative creations sometimes fuse local foods with cooking techniques from other culture to experiment new ways to satisfy the appetite of larger and international audiences. Tourism is strongly related to food adventures and shopping experiences. "The Wonderful Indonesia tourism products portfolio consists of 35% natural richness, 60% cultural heritages and 5% man-made structures. Culinary attractions filled 30% of the 60% portion of cultural heritage, thus clearly stated the importance of making local cuisine stand out is for the world to come taste it," elaborated  Arief Yahya, Indonesia's Minister of Tourism.
