Bali by Janet De Neefe
Book DescriptionWhen Janet De Neefe travelled to Bali 26 years ago she fell in love - not only with a man, but also with the island's fascinating culture, warm people and mouth-watering food. Since then, Janet has been collecting Balinese recipes, teaching local cooking methods and heralding the delights of this colourful cuisine, and in this book she shares all that she has learned. Follow Janet on a spice trail through Bali and its rich food culture, with chapters exploring sambals, rice dishes, curries and coconut, street food, ceremonial food, modern offerings and sweets. Each recipe is accompanied by an insight into the local culture, while key Balinese ingredients - such as kencur, candlenuts and shrimp paste - are explained in an extensive glossary. The recipes will surprise and inspire: there are well-known dishes such as Gado Gado and Chicken Satay, while more unusual offerings include Pork Spare Ribs with Tomato Sambal, Minced Prawns and Coconut in Banana Leaves, and Black Rice and Tangerine Tart. But Bali is more than just a cookbook - it is also an incredible photographic journey. Arresting images sit alongside the recipes and tell the story of this lush island and its people: men collecting sea water and leaving it to evaporate on volcanic sands in order to harvest salt; grandmothers making huge rounds of fresh tofu in backyard sheds; teenagers lining up at bustling market stalls for delicious sticks of chicken satay; street vendors crouched over their grills, fanning away the billowing smoke.
