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.
