My Sri Lanka
My sister and brother-in-law gave us a really cool present, when I was over there. It's a DVD of an Australian TV show called My Sri Lanka.
It is hosted by Peter Kuruvita, a real citizen of the world. Now a chef in Australia, he spent his childhood in Sri Lanka. He takes us through "his" Sri Lanka in search of the perfect ingredient, and recipe inspiration.
The show is about food, but it's not a traditional cooking show. Peter cooks on beaches, or in busy city streets. He goes quickly through the recipes, which you can find in details on the web site. But he also takes us through amazing landscapes and makes us meet people and discover colorful traditions. It's really beautiful!
It shows Sri Lanka through the eyes of someone who knows and loves the country, but also has a western eye. And he does share a lot of his personal memories.
The first episode is on Colombo. It shows lively markets, gorgeous beaches and busy temples. It made Pablo and I quite impatient to go there!
If you're adopting from Sri Lanka, you absolutely should watch this show. At least have a look at their web site, it's full of information, and the recipes are all on there.
