Crowne Plaza Terrigal’s Taste of Sri Lanka with Peter Kuruvita

June 17, 2017 Dining No Comments Email Email

On Saturday June 10, Crowne Plaza Terrigal hosted celebrity chef, Peter Kuruvita, for ‘Terrigal’s Taste of Sri Lanka’ dining experience at their signature Seasalt Restaurant. The event celebrated the exotic tastes of Sri Lanka, with Peter taking diners on a journey of the country’s remarkable flavours and aromas inspired by his grandmother’s kitchen in Sri Lanka.

For this special event, Peter joined Seasalt’s resident Executive Chef, Simon Quick, and Executive Sous Chef, Dana Chandler, to collaborate on a Sri Lankan 4-course feast including a Wild Fish Curry and Organic Slow-Roast Goat Kotu, amongst other delicious dishes.

From Peter Kuruvita:

“I have a long family history and yearning to promote the wonderful flavours of Sri-Lankan cuisine to the world. My trick has been to plate it in a modern style, while staying true to the traditional flavours.

My interest in promoting the flavours of Sri Lankan food was realised while working under Neil Perry at Bluewater Grill in the early 1980s. Neil started to put Asian dishes on his menu; until then most good chefs were true to the French-style, which is the influence in which many of us had been trained.

I grew up surrounded by the goings-on of a traditional Sri Lankan kitchen, a central room in our 360 year old home in Colombo. The flavours and aromas are always with me, and carry me back to my youth in Columbo. Back then, rice and curry was not a special event meal – it was a normal component of our everyday, from breakfast to dinner.  So when Neil started putting Asian dishes in the limelight, it struck a chord with myself; it was like someone had invited me to share my grandmother’s kitchen with them.”
