Description

Big flavours from a small island‘”Curry Everything” says the title of the curry section in this delicious book. To which I reply: “Bring it on!” But that’s not all. Cynthia also takes us on a journey through the stories and memories of her family to decipher the rich oral tradition of Sri Lankan cooking. This book makes me hungry to travel, explore and eat new things, especially curries.’ – Yotam Ottolenghi‘This book is a thing of great beauty and heart. The food jumps out at you with a promise of deliciousness. I want to cook every single recipe’ – Anna Jones‘Rambutan is a joyous book, stuffed with tantalising food and beautiful writing. Cynthia’s recipes and reminiscences speak with warmth and heart and soul to the experience of those of us with roots elsewhere, of growing up feeling slightly displaced, of having to come to terms with different cultures’ – Shamil Thakrar, Dishoom‘This book is a diamond in the rough: a proper (and honest) insider’s guide to Sri Lankan home cooking via Cynthia’s kitchen. I picked up this book for the food, but I’ll treasure it forever for the stories’ – Meera SodhaRambutan tells the story of Sri Lanka’s unique, spicy, fresh, vegan-friendly cuisine that deliciously combines Javanese, Malay, Indian, Arab, Portuguese, Dutch and British influences.

Stories of family and travel combine with beautiful landscapes and candid photography to show both ancient and modern Sri Lanka.
