LAUNCHES of the new book -
please note that dates and other important details have changed ...My new book, Sri Owen’s Indonesian Food, which in the US is to be called The Indonesian Kitchen, is to be published in early September by Pavilion. I will be celebrating the publication first here at my home in Wimbledon, London SW19, on Thursday 11 September, during my fund-raising pre-Symposium lunch. Then the Oxford Symposium on Food and Cookery is giving a dinner with an Indonesian menu on Friday 12 September, during the Symposium. The first official launch of Sri Owen’s Indonesian Food will be on 19 September at the Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia in Grosvenor Square, London W1. Then, on Thursday 25 September, I'm giving the Yan Kit So Memorial Lecture at Asia House, who have promised that my book will also get a launch party there. However, my next lecture and cookery demonstration at Asia House, "Curry and Prosecco", that was scheduled for 26 November, has had to be moved to April or May next year. But in connection with my new book, I'll be giving a talk and cookery demonstration at Divertimenti on 5th November, and at Books for Cooks on 3rd December.
