Embrace the rich spices and ingredients of Jailolo in the next Maharasa dinner:
JAILOLO CULINARY EXPERIENCE
Three million years ago in the Molucca Sea, four world’s greatest tectonic plates : the Indian Ocean, the Asian Continent, the Australian Continent, and the Pacific Ocean – fused together to form a unique shaped terrain, known as today : island of Halmahera.
Jailolo or known as Gilolo is located at the west shore of the island of Halmahera. It is known from long time ago as the main producer of spices especially for cloves and nutmeg. Today, Jailolo remains as natural as hundreds years ago. Fertile volcanic soil, tropical temperature, and monsoon rain provide suitable environment for Halmahera biodiversity. Nature has provided abundant indigenous ingredients other than clove and nutmeg for Jailolo, such as coconut, sago palm, banana, palm sugar, cassava, and pili nuts.
Indonesian culinary culture is regarded as highly distinctive based on geographical location and type of species, varying from the west side to the east side of the archipelago. Westeners who came to trade to Indonesia; such as Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch and English, contributed significant influence to Jailolo culinary culture. Maharasa Indonesia will present you a culinary experience interpreted in a contemporary way by professional chefs, Mr. Ragil Imam Wibowo and Mr. Adzan Tri Budiman. We hope those delectable hidden recipes can acquire a knowledge of culinary culture.
