Inspired by a fabulous Welsh themed dinner party at our friends’ last night, filled with laughter and delicious food, leeks are now on the menu at home today too!
Irresistibly sweet and juicy, Sri Lankan pineapples are the best! Harvesting more than 35,000 tonnes of fresh pineapple every year, pineapples grow in abundance in Sri Lanka, primarily in the Kurunegala and Gampaha districts. The plethora of pineapple piled up on the roadside when passing through all of the villages in the surrounding areas is a remarkable sight; street vendors line the roads preparing bags of freshly cut pineapple ready to nibble on. This perfect snack for the road is not to be missed!
For me no Sri Lankan meal is complete without a dollop (or twenty) of pol sambol! This fresh and spicy coconut condiment goes with everything and I literally can’t get enough of it! Be warned… It’s super addictive!
