Jeff’s 3rd cookbook is in English. It is the first English Indo Dutch heritage cookbook of its kind. Indo Dutch Kitchen Secrets is an inspiring full-color, hardcover cookbook about a unique culinary heritage, told through a collection of delicious, easy-to-prepare recipes and stories.
Indo Dutch Kitchen Secrets takes you on a journey of the Indo Dutch diaspora that started in the former Dutch East Indies. It follows the path of the people who traversed different continents and multiple cultures while managing to preserve their heritage to reinforce their identity. It’s about a little known secret in the culinary world, a cherished cultural treasure, which is at the heart of this community. It explores and celebrates the blending of Indonesian, Dutch and the resultant Indo Dutch fusion cooking style, all coming together in one fascinating cuisine – more than 350 years in the making.
The book is printed in the US and was released in December 2016. The 2nd print came available in May 2017.
