旅游体验重点
This sumptuous 2-hour workshop is led by Marian Chin, a writer passionate about highlighting the culture and heritage of her home state of Sarawak. Thanks to the rich biodiversity of Borneo’s rainforest, estimated to be over 130 million years old, Sarawak boasts an incredible array of vegetables. Some are indigenous and some transplanted, much like the melting pot of cultural groups that have made this region their home. Although some of these unique veggies are cultivated, many are still exclusively foraged, and so the jungle ferns, shoots, leaves, gourds and roots used during this workshop are straight from the wild, pesticide-free and simply brimming with nature’s goodness. These were the ultimate in organic, long before the term became a fashionable buzzword. The focus of this workshop will be cooking with lanau (Bario asparagus), a tuberous herb that grows along riverbanks. Using the lanau as a starting point, Marian will discuss the cuisine and culture of the Kelabits, an Orang Ulu ethnic group that resides in the Bario Highlands of Sarawak. In addition to, of course, tasting and bringing home their culinary creations, participants will: • Prepare sambal belacan (prawn paste) • Try their hand at pounding glutinous rice in a traditional eyung (mortar) and aluh (pestle) before wrapping it in daun isip, a wild fern, to cook senape buned • Sample tupik banuak, made from grated tapioca and pan-fried, topped with meliponines honey or gula apong (palm sugar) • Witness a demonstration of how to create beloved local drink tuak, Sarawakan rice wine Coffee, tea and a non-alcoholic herbal drink will also be provided.
