Event Details

A Celebration of Our Culture Through Food.

How Indo Heritage & Identity Is Preserved.

On Friday, October 7th  we will have our 4th lecture event, which we renamed: TIP TALKS. The first time we will have it in NorCal. The objective of this gathering is to 'share Indo knowledge' and interact with the audience about the theme of the event.

The ONE thing we Indos do best is: talking about food. It's at the heart of our community. Do you really know all there is to know about our unique Indo Dutch Culinary Heritage?  Please, join us for our  annual TIP TALKS where we will present:

  • The history & evolution of the cuisine - 350+ years in the making.
  • Difference between Dutch Indies & Indonesian (Indisch and Indonesisch).
  • Indische rijsttafel - officially part of Dutch cultural heritage.
  • Why is it, that in terms of heritage, food seems to be the most compelling one?
  • What did survivors eat during their time in the internmentcamps?
  • Why is it, that Indos never throw away food?
  • How to preserve our heritage?

Guest speaker:

Jeff Keasberry,  Vice Chair of TIP board and published author of two cookbooks in the Netherlands: Indische Keukengeheimen & de nieuwe Indische keuken. Carrying on the legacy of his grandmother Oma Keasberry, the notable published author, whose family was featured at the exhibit of 'The History of the Indische Cuisine' for three consecutive years at the Tong Tong Fair in The Hague (the largest Eurasian festival in the world), will present his new English version of the Indo Dutch Heritage Cookbook.

We will also present:

  • Indo food statistics gathered over the years by the Worldwide Indo Challenge
  • The science behind memories conjured up by the olfactory senses
  • Do we lean more towards a fusion of Dutch and Indonesian food? Or towards Indonesian? Dutch? What do the stats reveal?
  • Folkloric medicine found in traditional foods

Guest speaker:

Jamie Stern is member of the TIP board and Director of Research. She will do a presentation on: The Development of Our Present-day Geographical Portrait and will share some data regarding Indo Dutch Food:


Doors open at 4:30 pm. Event starts at 5:30 pm. Q & A with Jeff and Jamie after the presentation. Reception afterwards with light refreshments included. End of event 8 pm. The Indo Project is an all-volunteer organization and needs your financial support putting on events like these.


Cost: $15.00 per person

Sweet & Savory samples with refreshments will be served

after the presentations and Q and A session.

RSVP by September 25th, 2016.

The Indo Project is a non-profit organization.Our mission is rooted in keeping alive the Indo history and culture in future generations and attaining recognition for what our first generation has experienced. The Indo Project wants to honor the legacy that our parents, grandparents and other Indos have left us and have worked so hard to attain… a future for the younger generations. Our aim is to educate and raise awareness among the English speaking public about our rich heritage and capture the remarkable assimilation of Indos in their respective adopted countries.
