Crystal has landed in Bali, home base for ASLI FOOD PROJECT ft. Indonesia! Join her as she acquaints you with Balinese life and gives an inside look at her research.
My first conversation with Dr. Wawan Sujarwo went a little something like this.
Him: “How did you find my [research] paper?”
Me: “I found it on Google.”
Him: “But how did you access it? You need to have a subscription to a scientific journal database to read it.”
Me: “I asked a friend who works at a university research library to get it for me.”
Him: “And you’re a chef?”
Him: “I’m fairly certain no chef has ever read my paper before.”
We made a special video for Les Oiseaux de Passage and their feature on Indonesia. They’re an amazing network of people who get together in Geneva, Switzerland to expand their knowledge on food and culture around the world. ASLI FOOD PROJECT ft. Indonesia was happy to participate!
