From the kitchen of Jaime Barkwell.   Bami, also spelled Bahmi,
Goreng is an Indonesian dish that's traditional to Holland.  In
addition to chicken, ham and shrimp can be added, but this is
how I make it.  Some of the ingredients can be hard to find in
the U.S.  I buy them when I go to Holland.

"People who shine from within
don't need the spotlight."
Ketjap manis is a
sweet soy sauce that
smells like molasses.
