SBS Food Feasts on Sri Lanka!


Here it is, my first blog 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.”

    Peter -It sounds absolutely wonderful – can’t wait to see the show…I’m sure we’ll all feel like we’re there with you. As we’ve found with our own project, going back in time to rediscover childhood food memories and unearth treasured family recipes is the most rewarding journey to take!
