Serendip, My Sri Lankan Kitchen

Published April 2009, 256 pages, hardcover, 240 x 210mm

In Serendip, Peter Kuruvita, acclaimed chef from Flying Fish in Sydney, takes us on a rich and rewarding journey through the traditional cuisine of Sri Lanka, its culture of family and ceremony, and the colourful approach to life on this beautiful island nation. Offering Sri Lankan curries of every kind as well as traditional snacks, breads, sticky sweet treats, and recipes for curry powders, chutneys, sambals and pickles, Serendip is a treasury of delicious and flavoursome dishes.

Not only a great, comprehensive cook book, Serendip is full of stunning photography and personal insight into Peter’s memories of growing up in Sri Lanka
