The people. The place. The food. This is Sri Lanka. A travel cookbook by Jon Lewin. Building on the success of the original edition, The Locals Cookbook, The Locals’ Kitchen: Sri Lanka is the first in a series of travel documentary style cookbooks by author, photographer and chef Jon Lewin. It combines authentic local recipes, with creative imagery and informative first-hand accounts of Jon’s life immersed in this truly fascinating culture. The books are a reflection of his personal journey through each country, documenting local culture, cuisine and the stories behind the people he meets. “The Locals’ Kitchen: Sri Lanka paints portraits of people through both photography and prose; coupling up cultural insights with tried-and-tested takes on Sri Lankan dishes. Gleaned directly from locals, Jon’s recipes are authentic, but are made happily accessible for UK-based home cooks; this is food for cooking, not just looking at.” Vhari Russel – The Food Marketing Expert.
Jon Lewin passed away 13th January 2019, doing what he loved most… Surfing. In his memory, his family and friends are selling his book so it has a place in kitchens across the world. Profits from the sales of the book will go to families in Sri Lanka, and charities close to his heart, as Jon intended.
