Authors on Asia: A Taste of Bali
Dr. Vivienne Kruger will speak on "A Taste of Bali." Balinese food is singular among the leading cuisines of the world: dedicated to the gods and fueled by an array of fresh spices, it is inextricably bound to the island's Bali-Hindu religion, culture, and community life. In Balinese Food: The Traditional Cuisine & Food Culture of Bali, Dr. Kruger brings to life Bali's time-honored and authentic village cooking traditions, gathered from interviews with Balinese master cooks and over 40 of their favorite recipes.

Books will be available for purchase and signing. Light refreshments.
