Cookbook Club with Erin Orr
Discussion of Coconut & Sambal: Recipes from My Indonesian Kitchen
Led (virtually!) by PLG neighbor and blogger Erin Orr of the blog Big Sis Little Dish, the Cookbook Club comes together to create connection and build community through food. For July, the group will be cooking recipes from Lara Lee’s Coconut & Sambal. Be transported to the bountiful islands of Indonesia by this collection of fragrant, colorful and mouth-watering recipes. Coconut & Sambal reveals the secrets behind authentic Indonesian cookery. With more than 80 traditional and vibrant recipes that have been passed down through the generations, you will discover dishes such as Nasi goreng, Beef rendang, Chilli prawn satay and Pandan cake, alongside a variety of recipes for sambals: fragrant, spicy relishes that are undoubtedly the heart and soul of every meal. Lee uses simple techniques and easily accessible ingredients throughout Coconut & Sambal, interweaving the recipes with beguiling tales of island life and gorgeous travel photography that shines a light on the magnificent, little-known cuisine of Indonesia.
In addition to registering through Zoom, please contact Erin at email@example.com to RSVP and confirm what dish you will be making. Erin is happy to recommend a recipe from the book if you’d like help deciding!
