About Jeff Keasberry:
Jeff Keasberry is a Los Angeles-based entrepreneur, food writer, photographer and author of two popular cook books published in the Netherlands (2012 & 2014), where he is known for making the Indo Dutch cuisine more accessible. Jeff was born in Amsterdam, Holland and raised in his late grandmother’s once renowned Dutch Indies restaurant Djokja, of which he became the owner at the age of eighteen. Following his move to Los Angeles in 2005 he started craving his comfort food and realized that little is known about the cultures he belongs to and the food he grew up with. His passion to pursue the taste of home turned into a mission to preserve and promote his culinary heritage. He currently hosts cooking events, produces videos and writes about food on his blog www.keasberry.com.
