An evocative journey into the heart and culture of the real Sri Lanka with beautifully photographed cooking and heartwarming stories Divided into geographical regions, this stunning book, beautifully packaged with blue placeholder ribbon, offers recipes from that region along with stories of the people who live there. On the reawakening Jaffna Peninsula, war widows cook crab curry and fry spicy snacks, while in a remote eastern village, Sumith stirs vats of smoky milk toffee over an open fire in a factory behind his home. Bamini cooks thosai for the Hindu temple feast, and old William boils up his Ceylon tea at Colombo's dawn wholesale market, just as he's done every day for 60 years. And at Monaragala Prison, in one of the poorest districts in Sri Lanka, the inmates prepare a fragrant fish curry with pol roti.
Far more than a collection of traditional recipes, this book also weaves stunningly vivid photographs with heartfelt stories about the people who opened not only their kitchens, but their homes and hearts, to create this moving yet hopeful picture of Sri Lanka today. Includes metric measures.
