The Modern Kartini with Joanna Lasmono


The Modern Kartini with Joanna LasmonoIn celebration of Kartini Day, Raffles Jakarta welcomes guest chef Joanna Nalapraya Lasmono who will prepare a special Indonesian brunch with her signature low-carb dishes on Saturday, 21 April 2018 at Arts Café by Raffles. As one of Indonesia’s most inspiring women of our generation, she is well known for her use of natural herbs and her homemade recipes for the modern and successful Kartini’s of today.

Joana first fell in love with cooking when she moved to the United States and discovered it was a challenge to cook Indonesian food because the ingredients were not available. So she experimented with alternative ingredients and developed a passion for food. When she returned to Indonesia, she moved in to an apartment and started to grow her own ingredients on her balcony drawing on her experience of cooking independently abroad, and in that way she also did not have to rely on the shops and it saved time. That is how besides cooking, gardening then became her new hobby, and the two complement each other beautifully.

Joanna is not a professional chef; she is a passionate home cook. She recently launched her book “My Cook Book Diary: Recipes from The Heart, A Cooking Journal of Joanna Lasmono”. Her book was inspired from the thought that since everyone nowadays seems to live a fast-paced lifestyle, cooking is supposed to be fuss-free and does not require a lot of time, thus her recipes are quick and simple while staying true to the essence of cooking, which is serving good food. For her, success is not just about what you accomplish in your life, it is about what you inspire others to accomplish.

Join us for Joanna’s fresh, low-carb, and authentic Indonesian dishes at Arts Café by Raffles,
and hear from her personally all about her passion for cooking and gardening.
