Here it is, my first blog post..be gentle.
I’m about to leave (in 2 days – yikes.) for my home country of Sri Lanka to film a series with SBS Food. Think “Luke Nguyen’s Vietnam” except “Peter Kuruvita’s Sri Lanka”. It’s going to be an exciting journey to a relatively unexplored but delicious destination.
Check out the just-released info about it from SBS Food:
SBS Serves Up a Feast of Food Content
“SBS is set to serve up a feast of new food content for viewers with a raft of top new
commissions and the best in international acquisitions set for broadcast on SBS ONE and
SBS TWO in 2011.
Matt Campbell, Director of TV and Online Content, said: “SBS has a huge breadth of food
content coming up in 2011 and I’m delighted that we continue to attract such high profile
talent to the network. On SBS ONE our Thursday food night has driven a 78% increase in
average audience*. SBS continues to do what no other channel does, providing a unique
perspective on food through cultural exploration that resonates with audiences.”
My Sri Lanka with Peter Kuruvita** (6×25) sees acclaimed chef Peter Kuruvita, of Flying
Fish Sydney, take a journey through the unique food, colourful culture and deep history of Sri
Lanka. He relives his childhood years on this lush green island and shares intimate and
evocative memories, and family recipes handed down from his aunties and grandmothers.
My Sri Lanka with Peter Kuruvita is made by The Precinct for SBS.”
Through this blog, my Twitter, Facebook pages and YouTube channel I’d like to take you all on this journey with me. Please answer this poll and comment to tell me what you’d like to see the most of while I’m away
