Madura is a small island between Bali and Java. Here you will find many spices which were brought from India and the Middle East, like cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg.
After having had friendly relations with the Portuguese, the Dutch conquered the island of Java and named it "Batavia" on 4 March 1621.  Click on culinary calendar for more links between cooking and celebration.
