We want to make Indonesian home cooking experiences more enjoyable from kitchen to table.
We are serious about recipes.
Whether in our friends' homes or in our own kitchen, all recipes in Rasamasa is a proven recipe that have been tried. This way, you can relax cooking and scoring points with your family and friends.
No fuss recipes.
Our recipes are simple and basic. It can be cooked with as little cooking utensils as possible because we know that the worst part of cooking is in washing the dishes afterward.
We don't like to waste food.
Like any home cooks, we hate to see food gone to waste so all the foods you see here are real and extremely edible! We normally have an empty plate situation as soon as the shooting is over.
It feels good to share everything we learn in our kitchen.
Everytime we come out of our test kitchen, there is always a lesson or two that we learn: from organizing cooking steps to plating them. We enjoy sharing them with you.
But it would feel even better to hear from those who know more than us.
You know what? With 300+ tribes, each with their own way of living, we won't pretend that we know everything about Indonesian home cooking. So, if there is anything that we have missed, tell us in the comment box or send us an email.
