Indonesian Street Food Secrets: A Culinary Travel Odyssey Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A culinary travel odyssey in which the reader is introduced to a wide variety of exotic, yet obtainable ingredients and then initiated into their usage with over 90 recipes taken from the greatest street cuisine on the planet. An accompanying MAC and PC compatible CD-ROM includes hours of movies, music and sound that provide the viewer with a window into everyday Indonesian cultural and culinary life.

Review:

"What began eight years ago as a master's thesis project to produce an interactive CD-ROM has ended up as an enchanting book that presents — through text, vivid photos, and intriguing recipes — a tasting journey down a multitude of Indonesian streets. Oh yes, the CD-ROM is included too. It provides in both MAC and PC formats, movies, music and sound about the Archipelago's history and culture, as well as showing step by step, how to make fascinating dishes.

"Keith Ruskin Miller has intertwined the above contents with the line drawings of his late father, L. Don Miller and the critique and support of his mother, author Martha Miller. Her critiques were made via e-mail during Miller's explorations of Indonesia, where the book was eventually published.

"An extensive world traveler, Miller has researched exotic foods, their history, and their preparation by visiting the homes of some of the vendors and making friends with others. He even wangled a secret family recipe from one or two.

"The book, through photography and text, showcases the foods and the people who prepare these dishes in full color. Indonesian Street Food Secrets offers a traveler's guide complete with descriptions of exotic ingredients, a pronunciation guide, and suggestions about how to find, among others, Daun Pandan (Screwpine Leaf), Laos (Galingale), and Pete (Broad Stinky Beans).

About the Author

Keith Ruskin Miller has traveled extensively in Asia, stopping to live in various regions for extended periods. Although he has often worked as a chef and has always been fascinated by Asian cuisine, Miller's first love is documentary photography and filmmaking. With his latest book, Miller has included it all with wonderful photographs, tantalizing recipes, and a bevy of video snippets that document the culture and culinary practices of Indonesia.
