Aruna is in her mid-30s and happily and proudly single. She is an epidemiologist but her real passion is eating. She thinks and obsesses about food 24/7. When she is dispatched to investigate curious cases of Avian Flu in eight cities in the Indonesian archipelago, she brings along her two best friends, the quirky, internationally-trained chef Bono and the impossibly chic food and travel writer Nadezhda to eat along with her. Insights on food, local history, religion and Indonesian politics merge as they find out more than what they bargained for in cities as diverse as Surabaya, Bangkalan and Pamesan (Madura), Palembang, Medan, Banda Aceh, Pontianak, Singkawang and Mataram.1
