KEUKEN #2: The Flavorsome Intimacy

A few weeks to go for the most anticipated fourth, yet we could still relieved the merriness of the previous Keuken. We experienced a day when the usual street shut down from vehicular traffic and all the stands and stalls offering every delicacy imaginable and the live cooking stage you could drooled just from taking a single whiff, with a day-long live entertainment spilled onto the sidewalks from the earliest morning till down. The crowds were tremendous, even the sudden rain in the afternoon couldn’t stop people from pouring down all the stands available. It’s hard to say no for delicious food, really. Believe us, we tried.

Below are some of the pictures of Keuken #2, The Flavorsome Intimacy. You can see the past line-up here. In the meantime, we’re preparing something special for Keuken #4. Can’t wait to share them all with you :)

Surprise Stove: An Aftertoon Picnic at Taman Cibeunying

Last Sunday, our friends from KEUKEN held an afternoon picnic Surprise Stove at Cibeunying Park, Bandung. This is a pre-event of KEUKEN #4: The Jolly Camaraderie, that will be held on June  2013.

Even though the weather didn’t look good, black clouds were filling the sky and the rain started to pour at the very start, it didn’t deter the plans. Thankfully the weather held up and the sun came out to play, and we had some lovely picnic weather for the rest of the afternoon. The cooking performance started by the guys from Sharee with their worker soup, TAMARA (Thasa and Rara) made us some churros, open grill by Selaras, the snacks from Eat On, and beverages by Rumble Tea and Lemon Tree. And the best part was, it’s all free! Happy tummy all around :)

It was a little chilly at first, but the food and company made up for it for the rest of the day. A perfect way to spent our Sunday with friends.

Surprise Stove: Open Picnic

About a year ago, we went to KEUKEN‘s very first Open Picnic at Taman Cempaka. The day was surprisingly pleasant. When a casual get together in such a vast park with various different sections where you could find a nice spot to scooted around and parked your picnic rug, shared along a basket of homemade food, served with a glass of fresh lemonade tea is an actual kind of happiness. The rays of sunshine penetrating through the vast leaves from the nearby trees, the smell of grass and the sound of warm conversations along with good tunes gathered us together.

With cooking performance from Chef Downey a.k.a. Arifin Windarman, photography workshop from Taman Fotografi, Diet Kantong Plastik Campaign, Ngabring Biking gathering from Bike.Bdg and everybody else contributed for a leisure day under the cool shade. There is nothing more pleasurable than spend your weekend picnicking with friends and enjoying a nice breezy afternoon in the park.

Take a day off, gather close.

HOMESESSION001

HOMESESSION001 is an event hosted by NorrmU&KL (UNKL347′s furniture division), and House The House. It was held last Saturday at a formerly military ammunition storage transformed into UNKL347’s headquarter office, located on Jalan Gudang Selatan 88.

 

“The main reason of why we try to start Home Session is the feeling of ease, openness, classlessness, and deep-seated concerns to value our surrounding through simple things, like small gathering and music. Home Session is a space that allows us to view aspects from a rather intimate scale, or sometimes might just be a weekend visit to someone’s place, someone’s house, someone’s backyard, with cameras, and few records, that could be bringing us up to some nice conversations and pleasure.”

 

HOMESESSION001 hosted a furniture exhibition featuring design creations by some of Bandung’s designer. Including U&KL, Artes Indonesia, Goodwood & Carpenter Co, Zanun Nurangga, Metronome, Kandura, Meizan Nataadiningrat, etc it brought together a whole bunch of different approach in furniture designs with some good tunes from Dxxxt, Egga, Rekti from Bhang Records, and Bergas. On the other side, POP-UP KITCHEN by SURPRISE STOVE prepared by Keni Soeriaatmadja (Bin Ukon) and Arifin Windarman & Lukman Gunawan (Open Table). Free foodies for all the first getter! (Bin Ukon’s Smoked Chicken is heavenly, we fell in love at the first bite)

We dragged ourselves there and it was pretty brilliant that it actually cured our headache caused by traffic (weekend traffic that is!) HOMESESSION001 is a combination of three things that we, heck, everybody love; good designs, great foods, and best musics to spent your Saturday, getting inspired by.

If you by any chance missed the event, have a glance past their web for more info and details about Home Session. See you on the next visit! :)

Kou Cuisine

There’s one shop I’ve been curious in years. It’s small but well-known shop located in Ubud, Bali and our last day in there we spent to searched for this shop.

After always-follow-the-map-for-directions (we don’t know Ubud area that well), the wrong turn actually lead us straight to the Kou Cuisine shop (thanks God!). The kind shop-keeper welcomed us with her warm greeting (oh, and she speaks Japanese fluently) and we were mesmerized with its simple interior. The jam jars and the salt jars arranged neatly in the shelf along with the other cute knick-knacks like postcards, totebag, wooden spoon, etc. My eyes fixed straight to the tester table (hehehe). All of the jams tasted heavenly and after I tasted all the flavors available, I decided to bought the Milk Caramel Jam (it was labelled the most favorite flavor of all and Oslo’s favorite too!), Apple Cinnamon Jam (my favorite flavor of jam, ever!) and Kusamba Sea Salt (the sea salt harvested in Kusamba, in northern part of Bali).
