2019 London Book Fair

12-14 March, Olympia

Indonesia’s 74th year of independence was a good opportunity to raise its profile as ‘market focus’ country at the 47th London Book Fair.


Over 2,300 stand holders welcomed over 25,000 visitors from 56 countries.


Petty’s award winning book 'Jakarta Bites' was on display at the Indonesian stand.

Over three days, Petty and a team of Indonesian chefs provided a variety of exciting samplers of Indonesian food and drink at the aptly named Spice Cafe. A panel talk at British Library and a cocktail reception at the Design Museum were opportunities to showcase a collection of delightful canapes to demonstrate literature and food culture go hand in hand.   


September 2018

A well attended evening spent discussing the potential for developing the Indonesian food scene in UK. Sri Owen champion of the national cuisine of the archipelago, provided a valuable historical perspective while Petty Elliott underlined the opportunities to capture UK cooks' growing enthusiasm for something different in modern, time constrained households.

Teaching at SKOTEL

~Spring 2018

I enjoyed several nights as a ‘working’ guest at SKOTEL, Amsterdam, the training and study hotel, working with students and staff of the Hotelschool business and hospitality school. It was fun and a privilege to contribute to their studies; together we created a lunch for students & management followed by a dinner for public guests, both events themed on modern Indonesian cuisine.

NIHI, Sumba


Made a number of visits to this incredible resort, as 'visiting' chef and for a short time  assisting in role of executive chef for the resort. Nihi is a delight, not only remote, spectacular and exotic, but very much a contributor to the local community, in employment, in helping to create sustainable water supplies, supporting child health and tropical disease management programmes for local villages. A vacation experience like no other.
