Calling all foodies in Hong Kong to the “Flavors of the 17,000 Islands”. This May 31st, an evening of conversation and food tasting with William Wongso, Indonesia’s Preeminent Chef & Culinary Expert, Author of the Award-Winning Book “Flavors of Indonesia”. Place your booking here:
As the world’s largest archipelago with over 17,000 islands and more than 300 distinct ethnic groups, Indonesia has been blessed with rich culinary diversity. With bountiful varieties of species, a wide range of fresh produce, it would take a lifetime for anyone to taste all of Indonesia’s traditional dishes. While Rendang Padang may be an international favorite, it can hardly represent the vastness of Indonesia’s culinary offerings, each region is home to distinctive cuisines and flavors, many of which can be traced back through an exciting history with influences from both east and west. Indonesia’s most well-known culinary expert, William Wongso, will be joined by Dr. Daisy Tam of Baptist University in a multisensory conversation on the richness of Indonesia’s culinary culture, unfolding Wongso’s journey for decades to put Indonesian food on the world’s culinary map.
The evening will feature tastings of unique Indonesian spices, ceremonial specialties, specially designed canapés and drinks (by Wongso in collaboration with Drawing Room Concepts) as well as a spice-inspired artwork by Hong Kong based Indonesian artist Lie Fhung.
