Remapping the spice route: Understanding the history of Indonesian flavors

SHADINE TAUFIK - THE JAKARTA POST

Jakarta  /  Sun, September 27, 2020 

Spice delight: Indonesia’s rich flavors have inspired many books, including William Wongso’s 'Flavors of Indonesia' and Tim Hannigan’s 'A Brief History of Indonesia'. 

The diversity of local cuisine and spices across Indonesia has given rise to an array of unique flavors.

However, the notion of spice trade purely as a product of colonialism is still rampant – with memories of the spice route poisoned with violent confrontations.

But his plans to help other disabled children realise their dreams have been dealt a severe blow in an event that also destroyed all his career memorabilia.

The cultural assimilation and its connectedness among nations in Indonesia did not just happen. International traders played a significant role in the cultural development that left the traces we can find today. It is due to the spice commodity, coming from various islands in Nusantara that formed the trade traffic in the past, and thus becoming a cultural route.
