Inong is one of Indonesian foodie bloggers who passed away on August 31, 2006 in Singapore. Even though I don’t know her personally, but I know about her blogs (food blogs and her daily blogs, her poems). People know her as a kind-hearted and adorable person, lovely mom for her children, Zidan and Syifa.
One of Indonesian women mailing list, We R Momies Indonesia has a love project to remembrance her contributions to Indonesian blogs by publishing a book about the recipes and poems from her blogs. The copyright of the book will be belong to her children.
We R Mommies mailing list required some volunteers to try her recipes and took a photo of the food that we have tried. I’m one of those volunteers and I picked her Buntut Bumbu Asem Asem’ recipe. Here, it is the pic and the recipe.
