How Indo Heritage & Identity Is Preserved.

On Monday, May 30th (Memorial Day, one day after the Holland Festival in Long Beach), we will have our 3rd annual event, which we renamed: TIP TALKS. The objective of this gathering is to ‘share Indo knowledge’ and interact with the audience about the theme of the event.

There is one thing we Indos do best: talking about food. It’s at the heart of our community. Do you really know all there is to know about our unique Indo Dutch Culinary Heritage?  Please, join us for our 3rd annual TIP TALKS where we will present:

  • The history & evolution of the cuisine – 350+ years in the making.
  • Difference between Dutch Indies & Indonesian (Indisch and Indonesisch).
  • Indische rijsttafel – officially part of Dutch cultural heritage.
  • Why is it, that in terms of heritage, food seems to be the most compelling one?
  • What did survivors eat during their time in the internmentcamps?
  • Sitting at the dinner table with the enemy.
  • Why is it, that Indos never throw away food?
  • How to preserve our heritage?

Guest speaker:

Jeff Keasberry our Vice Chair of the TIP board and a published author of two cookbooks in the Netherlands: Indische Keukengeheimen & de nieuwe Indische keuken. Carrying on the legacy of his grandmother Oma Keasberry, the notable published author whose family was featured at the exhibit of ‘The History of the Indische Cuisine’ for three consecutive years at the Tong Tong Fair in The Hague (the largest Eurasian festival in the world) is now working on a English version of the Indo Dutch Heritage Cooking.

We will also present:

  • Indo food statistics gathered over the years by the Worldwide Indo Challenge
  • The science behind memories conjured up by the olfactory senses
  • Do we lean more towards a fusion of Dutch and Indonesian food? Or towards Indonesian? Dutch? What do the stats reveal?
  • Folkloric medicine found in traditional foods

Guest speaker:

Jamie Stern is member of the TIP board and Director of Research. She will do a presentation on: The Development of Our Present-day Geographical Portrait and will share some data regarding Indo Dutch Food:
