Jakarta beckons, and am on the plane tonight. On Tuesday afternoon I would be demonstrating three recipes to a select audience at the Presidential Suite of Hotel Four Seasons there. This is part of The Festival of India, organised by Femina and the Indian Embassy in Jakarta, the capital city of the Republic of Indonesia.
Interestingly, Indonesia is a country which is a cluster of more than 13000 islands! There are many ethnic groups that make up the Indonesian population. Can you guess how many different languages would be spoken there? Two hundred! I have read up about the places of interest and Taman Mini Indonesia Indah – Beautiful Indonesia in Miniature Park does sound a must see.
After the demos of Prawn Balchao Golgappe, Kachche Murgh ki Biryani and Shrikhand with Stewed Apricots on 22nd I will also be doing a Fish Roll Ghassi on 23rd for special invitees at the hotel’s Coffee House to be followed by an interactive session.
I have been waiting for your responses regarding what you would like to see in a kitchen diary? You can post me your suggestions at the earliest on firstname.lastname@example.org marking your mail as KITCHEN DIARY. Looking forward to it.
Till I write again.
