Hidden Kitchens of Sri Lanka

Take an evocative journey into the heart of the real Sri Lanka and discover the central role food plays in the country's way of life in this stunning new collection of recipes and stories. Divided according to region, Hidden Kitchens of Sri Lanka interweaves recipes with heartfelt stories of everyday life from locals who opened their hearts, homes and kitchens. On the Jaffna Peninsula war widows cook crab curry and fry spicy snacks, while in a remote eastern village, local man Sumith stirs vats of smoky milk toffee over an open fire in a factory behind his home. Food is prepared for a Hindu festival, and old William boils up his Ceylon tea at Colombo's dawn wholesale market, just as he s done every day for the past sixty years. Hidden Kitchens of Sri Lanka includes over 60 recipes for everything from fragrant fish curry to vegetable roti rolls, spicy coffee to sweet rice pudding along with a full glossary of Sri Lankan ingredients and cooking equipment. A moving yet hopeful picture of the country today, Hidden Kitchens of Sri Lanka is far more than a collection of traditional recipes; it is a book as much about the inspiring people as it is about their food. Key Selling Points: more than 60 recipes from around Sri Lanka, from bustling Colombo to remote coastal paradise beautiful location photography Organised region by region, packed with information on Sri Lanka s history and culture Recipes include everything from street food (and, of course, tea) to special festival meals

About the Author

Bree Hutchins has always had a passion for food and travel. Over the past decade she has eaten her way across six continents, invited herself into countless kitchens and gathered recipes from across the globe. A destined meeting with a food photographer launched Bree on a whirlwind path of change. Determined to make a living from food and travel photography, she left her job as a newly qualified lawyer and threw herself into this new career with enthusiasm and energy. In 2012, she was invited to spend two months travelling around Sri Lanka, photographing and writing Hidden Kitchens of Sri Lanka. When she's not wandering into strangers' kitchens, armed with her camera, Bree lives and works in Sydney.
