ABOUT ME 

CEYLOVE (pronounced “Say Love”) is the marriage of Ceylon, the former British colonial name of Sri Lanka, and Love. The book conveys my adoration and respect for my heritage and mother’s homeland through a collection of family recipes, stories, travel and life experiences. 

It all began when I was a young girl, infatuated with the amazing aromas created in the kitchens of my mother and grandmother. Since then, I have learned the intricacies of Sri Lankan cooking, which culminated in my appearance on MasterChef USA Season 8.

In CEYLOVE, I show how you can use whole spices to impart extraordinary flavor to food in a pure and all-natural way. My goal is to bring the spirit of Sri Lanka to any occasion, whether it is your date night, holiday, breakfast or cocktail hour. You will see why Sri Lankan cuisine is a foodie's dream come true!

 

 

ABOUT CEYLOVE: FROM SRI LANKA WITH SPICE

CEYLOVE is a palatable project for me in every sense of the word. With eye-catching photos that embody the splendor of Sri Lanka, CEYLOVE delivers a global food paradise with explosive flavor combinations by using fresh ingredients and easy methods.

Drawing on my American-Sri Lankan heritage, I present 97 recipes with my signature chic Sri Lankan flair. Along the way, I'll give you tips and tricks for how to eat in style; share my love for spices, which I look at as flawless gems of the earth that hold pure beauty; and teach you the proper way to eat rice and curry with your fingers.

PRODUCTION & DELIVERY SCHEDULE

After nearly a year of refining the recipes to the finest detail and compiling  them in an elegant, informative and entertaining package, CEYLOVE is ready for print. The proceeds of this campaign will be entirely dedicated to completing the first production run of CEYLOVE, which has already been initiated with our printing partner.

 

HELP ME BRING CEYLOVE TO LIFE

CEYLOVE contains a mix of very Sri Lankan recipes and other dishes drawing on my love for spices, family history and global influences, all prepared and plated in my style. The book embodies my passion for Sri Lanka, its people and its cuisine, which ignites a fire in me to create elegant and exotic food. Join me on this journey to culinary bliss inspired by beautiful Sri Lanka!

Should timing change for any rewards, I promise to keep you informed.
