A taste of Indonesia for NMIT Hospitality students

25 Mar 2013

As part of Festival Indonesia's culinary program, NMIT students will be given a demonstration of Indonesian cooking from two internationally renowned chefs.

Doddy Djufrani and Bambang Sapto Utomo, both with over 20 years of experience in Indonesian cuisine, will demonstrate how to prepare authentic Indonesian dishes to students and staff on Tuesday 6 September at NMIT Preston. The culinary workshop will be held from 4pm to 6pm and will include tastings of the dishes prepared - spring rolls, chicken soup, Beef Rendang and sweet coconut rice balls.

Andrew Shepherd, Culinary Coordinator for Commercial Cookery at NMIT Hospitality says it will be fantastic for students to learn from experienced chefs: “Any chef can follow a recipe but nothing compares to seeing it prepared firsthand by a true expert.”

The culinary program is one of several events being held in the lead up to the Festival Indonesia weekend (10 to 11 September) in Queensbridge Square, Southbank. The festival showcases Indonesia's food, history, art, and fashion.
