Asia Society Culinary Culture Series - Flavors of the 17,000 Islands

Asia Society Culinary Culture Series
Flavors of the 17,000 Islands

Indonesia’s most well-known culinary expert, William Wongso, joined by Baptist University’s Daisy Tam, in a multisensory conversation on the richness of Indonesia’s culinary culture, will unfold his decades-long journey to put Indonesian food on the world’s culinary map.

As the world’s largest archipelago with over 17,000 islands and more than 300 distinct ethnic groups, Indonesia has been blessed with a rich culinary diversity. Each region is home to distinctive cuisines and flavors with exciting histories with influences from both East and West.

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 art installation by artist Lie Fhung.
