Indonesian Food Fest at Seasonal Tastes, Westin

I don’t usually cook, but when I do I make sure it’s something fancy. Keeping this tradition alive, I tried my hand at Indonesian cuisine this weekend. How was it? Well, Chef Ridwan at the Westin  made it look real easy. In the masterclass held at Prego, Westin, he showed us how to make Gado Gado and Nasi Goreng. I am going to share the recipes with you in this post. If you decide to try it, do let me know how it turns out.

Pro Tip : If you wish to try your hand at this cuisine, I suggest you start off with a lot of patience.

This was followed by a buffet at Seasonal Tastes where I ate cake for lunch ( I didn’t quite like the Indonesian spread- maybe since the coconut milk gravy made all dishes taste similar?)
