Fire Islands: Recipes from Indonesia by Eleanor Ford is a collection of enchanting, unusual yet accessible dishes ... from the refined cooking of Java to the spicy heart of Sumatra and over the water to the festival foods of Bali.
Steep verdant rice terraces, ancient rainforest and fire-breathing volcanoes create the landscape of the world's largest archipelago. Indonesia is a travellers' paradise, with cuisine as vibrant and thrilling as its scenery.
For these are the original spice islands, whose fertile volcanic soil grows ingredients that once changed the flavour of food across the world. On today's noisy streets, chilli-spiked sambals are served with rich noodle broths, and salty peanut sauce sweetens chargrilled sate sticks. In homes, shared feasts of creamy coconut curries, stir-fries and spiced rice are fragrant with ginger, tamarind, lemongrass and lime. The air hangs with the tang of chilli and burnt sugar, citrus and spice. Eleanor Ford gives a personal, intimate portrait of a country and its cooking, the recipes exotic yet achievable, and the food brought to life by stunning photography.
Eleanor Ford is a food writer whose work draws on exotic, far-flung destinations for inspiration. Her first book, Samarkand, won the Guild of Food Writers Award for Food and Travel in 2017. When not travelling and collecting recipes, Eleanor lives in London.
