Food Traditions of Central Kalimantan with Slow Food Bali

Jalan Raya Sayan, Banjar Kutuh, Gang Cahaya, Ubud 80571
Thu 05th Jul, 2018
05:30 pm - 07:30 pm

We are pleased to partner with Slow Food Bali (SFB) and be the first to appear in their new Thirsty Thursday series, where they will be exploring the importance of biodiversity in local food systems in Indonesia.

After our recent research trip to Central Kalimantan, Crystal has discovered and will demonstrate two recipes unique to the Dayak Ngaju tribe that reflect the evolving stages of their cuisine — Kopu, a singkong (cassava)-based dish and Kenta, a ketan (glutinous, white rice)-based snack — both of which are at high-risk of vanishing. In this 45-minute presentation, she will also discuss the biodiversity seen in this region, the recipes' origins and the factors that challenge their existence.

Come listen, learn, taste, join in lively discussions, and enjoy the good company of Slow Food members and friends.
