Promotion of Traditional Cuisine Must Be Optimized

Promotion of Traditional Cuisine Must Be OptimizedIndonesia is rich with a variety of traditional cuisines and it is a potential needing to be optimized in order to support the tourism of the country. “We expect the traditional cuisine will be able to promote the domestic tourism. To that end, the traditional culinary should be promoted more intensively,” said the President of the Indonesian Chef Association (ICA), Hendry Alexie Bloem, amidst the Archipelago Culinary Boutique in Kuta, Tuesday (Jan 29).

According to him, along with the rapid growth of tourism sector in Indonesia, the serving of traditional menus should be promoted. Moreover, each region had a distinctive menu which could be presented to foreign tourists. The one needed to be addressed, he added, was the typical menu with the original presentation, but the packaging could be collaborated with modern style.

Hendry doubling as Director of Food and Beverage of The Breezes Bali Resort & Spa added that tourists coming to Indonesia, especially to Bali, did not only want to know about the arts and culture, but also wanted to taste the Indonesian food. “Let tourists adapt to those foods. Accordingly, tourists will have memories of their own regarding of the food when they are going home,” said the man from Sesetan village, Denpasar. As a matter of fact, he said, foreign tourists also wanted to know traditional food owned by the region, both typical food and snack. “Aside from served with tourist object, it will also be more complete if the region can provide traditional food by paying attention to hygiene and health,” he concluded.
