A blend of soy sauce and palm sugar, kecap manis is as common a sight on Indonesian dining tables as rice, and is used in such signature Indonesia dishes as nasi goreng, tongseng, and semur. Like most other cultural traditions in Indonesia, kecap manis remains a part of daily life, but few are aware of the interesting history of this national condiment. This book explores the world of kecap manis through folklore, anecdotes, and recipes, showcasing this unique creation from a unique archipelago.
