Last night my daughter Mandy & I presented a talk/demo about Indonesia to patrons of the Wells County Public Library. We showed Indonesian items Mandy has brought home and talked about the importance of crafts in that culture. I then showed some of the crafts middle school students made with me for my book, Recipe and Craft Guide to Indonesia.
We also had samples of authentic Indonesian snacks like mini- mango puddings for students to try. Some of the spicy-hot peanuts were intimidating, but the packaging of the snacks was beautiful!
The wonderful library staff helped us set up and advertise our presentation. We appreciate their support and smiling faces!
It was so much fun showing students how to play an angklung, and watch them try new things like the avocado juice. We ended the evening by making shadow puppets.
My good friend Cathy Shouse brought her daughter Katelyn and some of her special friends from Fairmount. Long trip but thanks for coming!
Thanks to everyone who attended!
