Nusantara is a contemporary Indonesian term for the Indonesian archipelago. Taken from an oath by Gajah Mada in 1336, Nusantara means "outer islands". Based on the Majapahit concept of state includes; East Java, Madura, Bali, South Sumatra, Singapore, East Timor and Southern Thailand. The food that I will represent speaks of those countries and how much we influence each other. Dinner will be held at The Tradesman in the Mission district, a contemporary yet elegant space.
