What's Cookin' Good Lookin': Garuda Indonesia's Secret Recipes
...And we're not talking in-flight food, but off-flight food.
Did you know that in-flight entertainment systems can be more than just an avenue for catching up on episodes of 30 Rock or Gossip Girl? Well, on Garuda Indonesia, there's heaps of information in a very well stocked seatback TV.
When we perused the offerings to watch some television on a recent Garuda flight, we found more than just Bahasa-language sitcoms. Since we don't speak enough of the language to even get one wise-crack, we opted to go deeper into the pages and pages designed to keep passengers happy until final approach.
Garuda's entire IFE system is designed to, not only, make the flight more enjoyable, but the experience at your destination more rich. In the travel info page we found destination guides for each of the major international gateway the airline offers. Upon further inspection, each guide offers a recipe for a dish that's a specialty of that particular city.
Thus, we found (and now share with you) the "native chow" recipes for meals from Jakarta to Hong Kong, Sydney to Jeddah and a few cities in between. Happy cooking and, if you try them, let us know how they turn out.
