One of my favorite blogs is Rice & Curry, a food blog that mostly covers Sri Lanka. It’s interesting stuff, and all quite cookable. Thus I was pleased to see that the author, S.H. Fernando, has published a cookbook – Rice & Curry: Sri Lankan Home Cooking – which seems to be out now. It’s gotten some good reviews:
“A terrific introduction to a great culinary tradition about which egregiously little is known. Well-researched, authentic, and easy-to-follow recipes.” –Anthony Bourdain, Author of KITCHEN CONFIDENTIAL and TV host of NO RESERVATIONS WITH ANTHONY BOURDAIN
…a cultural and culinary tribute to a sublimely delicious style of cooking that is simple and full flavored. You want this book. If you are suffering from flavor fatigue, consider yourself cured. Honest, authentic and dependable, the recipes are superb and the curry geeks in your house will be sated for years eating their way through this tome. –Andrew Zimmern, TV host of Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern
There are a handful of Sri Lankan cookbooks out there, but few this approachable. Looks quite interesting. Congrats for getting it into a book.
