I think we finally put this bad boy to bed. I’m talking about my cookbook, Rice & Curry: Sri Lankan Home Cooking. After a summer of editing and design, revisions and redesign we’re ready to pull the trigger and send this thing to the printer. couldn’t have done it alone: Thanks to my editor, Priti Gress, and the entire staff of Hippocrene Books; my copy editor Barabara Keane-Pigeon; designer Bryan Canniff; and photographer Susan Now. In early November, you should be able to stroll down to your nearest Barnes & Noble and cop a copy for yourself (and one for a friend). Here’s what it will look like:
Of course, you can also just go on Amazon, where they are currently offering the book (preorder) for a 33% discount:
I must maintain that this is the only cookbook in the entire world with customer service. If you have any questions about any of the recipes or need some tips or advice about making, eating or finding Sri Lankan food, drop me a line. I’m giving out my personal email:
In keeping with my whole DIY approach and grass roots marketing, I’m also promoting a book with a series of Sri Lankan Supper Clubs across the country. Currently I’m working on Baltimore, DC, San Francisco and New York, but if you have any interest in your town, please feel free to contact me as well, and hopefully we can work something out.
I will continue to bring you new episodes of Pan Asian, my YouTube cooking show, which you can tune into right here:
And, of course, I will continue to expound upon my passion for Sri Lankan food and all things spicy right here.
