Sarogini’s Sri Lanka Food is a beautifully produced 188-page book jam-packed with more than 100 easy-to-prepare recipes including delicious curries, rice dishes, vegetarian delights, sweets and more-ish finger food, from master Sri Lankan cook Sarogini Kamalanathan.
The fantastic new cookbook follows on from her highly successful cooking classes, where Sarogini presents her favourite recipes that reflect the diverse origins of modern Sri Lankan cuisine.
Spice traders, colonial occupiers (the Dutch, Portuguese and then English) – plus the teardrop-shaped island’s proximity to southern India – have all left their mark to create a truly dazzling meld of fragrant, flavour-filled dishes.
Accompanied by Craig Kinder’s superb photographs, Sarogini’s Sri Lanka Food is a food lover’s odyssey throughout Asia’s ‘undiscovered’ cuisine.
From piquant chicken pepper fry to spicy crab curry and unique Sri Lankan dishes such as hoppers, to a sensational array of vegetarian dishes (pineapple curry anyone?), Sarogini’s Sri Lanka Food is the ideal kitchen companion to wow your dinner party guests or bring a touch of easy-to-make exotica to everyday dining.
