The Balinese Rijsttafel

During the colonial period of Indonesia, the Dutch lived rather lavish life’s, with plenty of servants to assist in making life as comfortable as possible. Eating was not any different and the choice given was either Colonial Dutch or Indonesian Cuisine. When ever they referred to Indonesian cooking then the basic phrase of Rijsttafel was used, meaning Rice Table. Contrary to European cuisine, which was mostly plated, Indonesian dishes were always served in the center of the table surrounding a large basket of steamed white rice.
