Riesa’s cooking journey began in her Melbourne home kitchen during thepandemic lockdown last year. Bowie’s delectable meals have inspired manysocial media followers to create ‘fancy’ meals for their own dogs. Riesacreated cheddar cheese wrapped dumplings (possibly Riesa’s invention!) whichthen inspired her to write Bowie Drools Over Dumplings.
Born and raised in Indonesia, she grew up eating different types of Chinesedumplings. When she began researching for the book, she discovered othercuisines had their own version of dumplings, such as the Turkish Manti,Japanese Gyoza and South American Empanada.
“They all seem to share a similar trait that the dumplings represent theculture, tradition and a link to their family through food,” said Riesa. “Ilove eating, cooking for and serving food to my family and friends, and itjust seems natural to share what I love to eat and serve with Bowie.
“I love cooking for Bowie because I know what I’m feeding him and he’sinvolved every step of the way, as the ‘chief tester and taster’ and qualitycontrol. For me, it’s like a bonding session with Bowie,” said Riesa.
“ Bowie Drools Over Dumplings is not a traditional recipe book where youjust follow a recipe and that’s it. It also gives you plenty of ideas andinspiration to create your own dumplings to suit your dog’s needs. I’m a bigadvocate for that!”
