    Just when you thought you knew everything about Asian food, along comes James Oseland’s Cradle of Flavor. Oseland has spent two decades exploring the foods of the Spice Islands. Few can introduce us to the birthplace of spice as he does. He brings us the Nyonya dishes of Singapore and Malaysia, the fiery specialties of West Sumatra, and the spicy-aromatic stews of Java. Oseland culled his recipes from twenty years of intimate contact with home cooks and diverse markets. He presents them here in easily made, accessible recipes, perfect for today’s home cook. Included is a helpful glossary (illustrated in color in one of the picture sections) of all the ingredients you need to make the dishes and where and how to buy them. With Cradle of Flavor, fans of Javanese Satay, Singaporean Stir-Fried Noodles, and Indonesian curries can finally make them in their own kitchen.

      one of the few cookbooks I have found that capture the splendor of indonesian cooking. Not sure if I will ever be able to recreate some of the marvelous dishes - I am not much of a cook. This book makes my mouth water and the instructions are easy enough for a novice like me.

      This book describes the essence of the people of Indonesia. The author wrote about his experiences in the different islands of Indonesia, how he met people, and about the hospitality of the people, sharing with him whatever they had. To me, being from Indonesia myself, this described the essence of the people of Indonesia, without the influence of "outsiders" through the media, trying to be like the "modern" world. I gave a 4 for overall, only because some of the recipes are lacking some "indigenous" ingredients, so some of the recipes are not completely the way they should be. I would recommend this book highly, especially for those with connections to Indonesia, e.g. have an Indonesian spouse, or have an Indonesian parent, or Indonesian friends. If only more people could be like this author, there will be great understanding and good will among people, no prejudices, no preconceptions, and peace among the different nations. I also like his style of writing, descriptive and easy to read.
