I’d like to introduce you all to my old nanny, Prema. I’ve known this incredible woman for more than 40 years.
So many of my early memories involve this lovely lady. She used to cook with me as a child and teach me about Sri Lanka, flavours and ingredients.
She now owns a spice company; a woman of many talents! Prema is now hand selecting and grinding all of my spices and even some custom ones for the show.
You’ll see more of Prema, and hear some of my memories of her soon.
I’ll also go into a bit more depth about the spice process and which spices in particular we’re featuring in my cooking throughout the show.
