Give your tastebuds a tour

of Indonesia's Spice islands! 

Welcome to the world of modern Indonesian cuisine.


My aim is simple: to ensure Indonesian recipes and ingredients including herbs and spices can be enjoyed by everyone.


There are so many interesting Indonesian dishes to try whether for a dinner party at home or eating out. Formal, fusion, street food, picnics, canapés or cocktails, something familiar or traditional, something new and different, it's time to try the food of the world's largest archipelago.   


Please enjoy exploring this website and feel free to give comments via the blog section.    


'Selamat makan!'

My birthplace, Manado with Manado Tua volcanic island at sunset fringed by

coral reefs that form a scuba heaven with abundant seafood.


My second home in rural England with idyllic summer evenings

and all the variety of the seasons in local ingredients.


Jakarta skyline - one of the mega cities of South East Asia

and the home to some great street food
