Here is Chef Eko in Mercure Hotel Serpong Jakarta. He taught me so much about my favourite Indonesian foods. Each morning breakfast was a delicious adventure. First a 5 a.m. swim, pepping my system. The a restoring feed on lots of amazing fish with fragrant sauces, each day 3 new recipes to try, tempeh (fermented bean cake), tofu, chicken and lots of wonderful sambal green chilli salsa. Followed huge quantities of tropical fruit, some we never get in U.K. kedongdong (in Eko's hands), snake skin fruit, asinan mango etc. etc. I miss my breakfast!
Just back from spending an amazing 6 weeks developing a new collection of ceramics. I was lucky enough to work with great people. This is my team in the shape department. They worked so hard on the project and were enormous fun to be with too.
