Laksmi Pamuntjak luncurkan buku "The Jakarta Good Food Guide 2008-2009"


Bertempat di Toko Buku Aksara Kemang, Jakarta Selatan, pada hari Rabu (26/3) lalu, Laksmi Pamuntjak meluncurkan edisi teranyar buku panduan "The Jakarta Good Food Guide 2008-2009". Buku yang menjadi peta wisata kuliner ini memuat sekitar 440 restoran termasuk tempat makan pinggir jalan dan kaki lima yang bertebaran di Jakarta. Laksmi menggandeng Paul Kadarisman untuk mempermanis bukunya dengan tampilan foto-foto yang menawan, serta Cecil Mariani dan JB Design untuk rancang grafis.

Kemunculan "The
Jakarta Good Food Guide" (JGFG) diawali oleh rasa frustasi Laksmi Pamuntjak atas tidak adanya panduan makanan di Jakarta yang independen, komprehensif dan deskriptif. Terbitnya buku yang menjadi "peta kuliner" ini memberikan kemudahan bagi masyarakat untuk mencicipi beragam hidangan berkualitas di seantero Ibu Kota. Menurut Laksmi, TJGFG bukanlah sekadar buku panduan, tapi ingin menjadi jendela ke dalam sosiologi kota Jakarta. "Karena makanan mencerminkan budaya: sesuatu yang selalu hybrid, mengalir, berubah dan menyerap dari sana sini," tutur Laksmi.

JGFG adalah buku panduan restoran pertama di Indonesia yang independen. Ia tidak disponsori restoran dan hotel di Jakarta maupun industri makanan. Penulisnya selalu membayar penuh di setiap restoran yang ia kunjungi dan tak pernah memberi tahu kedatangannya kepada pihak restoran. Mengingat untuk menerbitkan buku seperti ini membutuhkan biaya yang tidak sedikit, Laksmi memerlukanpenaja (sponsor). Beruntunglah, Mandiri Prioritas bersedia menjadi penaja utama dan Depbudpar (Departemen Kebudayaan dan Pariwisata) Republik Indonesia
mencantumkan buku ini dalam rangkaian program Visit Indonesia Year 2008.

Sebagai catatan, JGFG pertama kali diluncurkan tahun 2001 dan laku 13.000 eksemplar. Edisi berikutnya, The
Jakarta Good Food Guide 2002/2003, laku 10.000 eksemplar. Pada 2002, buku ini memenangi penghargaan "Editorial Merit" dalam International Graphic Design Award ke-10 Majalah HOW USA dan juga dimuat sebagai salah satu "Penerbitan Kelas Dunia" dalam koleksi National Library of Australia. Penulisnya pernah diundang menjadi juri dalam kompetisi kuliner internasional seperti World Gourmet Summit dan pernah tampil sebagai co-host dalam program TV Kulinaria TV7 (kini bernama Trans7) bersama William Wongso.

Ragam komentar

"Akhirnya, tolok ukur santap lezat di Jakarta telah dikukuhkan melalui tulisan yang tak neko-neko dan kritik yang jujur."

William Wongso, pakar kuliner

"Yang mengagumkan dari JGFG adalah mutu keseluruhannya: desain yang bersih dan anggun; pemilahan kategori yang bijak; tulisan yang ajek dan berkilau; dan, terutama, resensi yang informatif, kritis dan sarat pengetahuan ... prosanya senantiasa renyah, dalam, dan tidak pernah
klise."

Daniel Ziv, Penulis Jakarta Inside Out

"Gubernur Makan-Makan Enak di Jakarta..."

Bondan Winarno, pakar kuliner, dalam Tempo

"Ini adalah buku yang lezat dan layak dimiliki setiap warga kota ini... pecinta makanan Jakarta ... tidak pernah melihat sesuatu seperti ini sebelumnya."
