Available in Bahasa: Click Here

This week is a new experience for me, attended a cooking class held by one Indonesian restaurant with an elegant interior and famous for beautiful Indonesian food presentation.
This time, I along with some other participants were invited to learn how to make a typical Manado cuisine. Of course it is not foreign to us like dabu-dabu, rica-rica and klapertart. The event started in the morning around 10:00 am, seen all the equipment and ingredients have been provided on the long table along with cooking menu recipe.
We were guided by Chef Sambas Sanusi Herman who is Corporate Chef Terra Gastronomy and Chef Parjiyo as Executive Chef. The event started with a cooking demo with the first menu, Salmon Tataki Saos Dabu Dabu. The fried salmon is served along with the typical sauce of Manado, dabu dabu. The ingredients used are green tomato, garlic, shallot, chili, ginger flower, red tomato, etc.
Quite a lot of the type of ingredients used, this is indeed a characteristic of Indonesia is rich in spices and herbs to produce an amazing taste. Salmon with medium rare level provides a very soft and juicy texture. In addition, the typical dabu-dabu flavor gives the sensation of savory sour and spicy perfectly combined.
For the second menu, Tuna Rica-Rica. The ingredients used to make rica rica sauce is quite a lot in accordance with the character of Indonesian cuisine. We use chili, large chili, onion, garlic, lime leaves, basil, lemongrass, ginger and etc. As a beginner, I'm having trouble remembering all the ingredients needed, but with a guide from chef and teamwork so we can be creative to make a nice rica-rica sauce.

The amazing thing about this event was the plating of food that Chef Sambas demonstrated was very impressive. It looked so easy for him to create his creations on a plate with ingredients already cooked into food with a classy look. And of course in addition to a beautiful presentation, the flavors presented are also perfect.
