I have spent a great time in Bogor. There you have the opportunity to learn from the source and still feel the roots. If you really want to make a good tempeh as used to do before, here is the right place.
This experience allow me to be capable to teach different practices of making tempeh: the ancient craft, the modern and also homemade (small portions to make it at home). Furthermore you have the chance to visiting all the tempeh makers around and share so many stories and ancient recipies.
The owners and staff are really friendly always available to answer to question and help you. You really feel happy and lucky to learn with them.
Now is time to share all this knowlgment to the world and share the tempeh word :)
