Ever been to Noord, Joncarl Lachman’s East Passyunk Dutch wonderland, and thought, “What’s a curry doing on this menu, alongside beer broth mussels and smoked fish?” That’s no chef-y whim. For over three centuries, Indonesia was once the Dutch East Indies, formed from the nationalised colonies of the Dutch East India Company. Dutch colonial families were exposed to Indonesian cuisine via domestic servants and cooks, and although the Dutch East Indies is no more, the Dutch people’s taste for Indonesian flavors remains strong. While the relationship between the two cultures was tenuous during the colonial days, here in Philadelphia, there’s nothing but love between Dutch-focused Noord and Winkel and the homestyle Indonesian Hardena. Hardena, located in the South Philly’s Point Breeze neighborhood and owned by the multi-generation Widjojo family, is one of Lachman’s favorite go-to’s. Over the years, Joncarl has even hosted several collaborative dinners with the ladies of Hardena. This November, that collaboration comes to COOK, when Joncarl teams up with Diana Widjojo for a meal that showcases the Indo-Dutch culinary tradition, with a menu of chicken satay; salmon with mustard; pork with cabbage, apples and caraway; and a surprise Indonesian dessert.
