Fragrant Rice: My Continuing Love Affair with Bali

Author(s): Janet de Neefe


When Janet De Neefe stepped off the plane in Bali in 1974, she felt an immediate connection to this island paradise. Though curious about Bali's culture, its warm people and its mouth-watering cuisine, she didn't expect to fall in love with a Balinese man and make a new life there. Now, years later, Janet and her husband have four children and run two of the most successful restaurants in Bali. Janet shares entertaining stories of her immersion into another culture and way of life, along with insights into the ancient myths and rituals still alive in Bali today. She also passes on delicious recipes handed down through generations of her husband's family. "Fragrant Rice" shows how the love, hope and warmth that makes this island such a special place is still very much alive today.
