Novotel Sydney Manly Pacific are delighted to invite guests on a vegetarian journey with the launch of celebrity TV chef Peter Kuruvita’s new vegetarian book, ‘Lands of the Curry Leaf’ – a discovery of exotic flavours from Sri Lanka to Nepal.

For one night only, Peter will swap his coastal kitchen, Noosa Beach House at Sofitel Noosa Pacific Resort, for a cocktail event at Novotel Sydney Manly Pacificon Friday, 16 November 2018 from 7-9pm, with a live cooking demonstration, Q&A and book signing, priced at $79 per person including drinks and canapés.

Best known for his TV series on SBS television, acclaimed chef, author and TV presenter, Peter Kuruvita shares over 100 vegetarian and vegan recipes that take us on a culinary journey of discovery through the subcontinent – from Bhutan, Nepal and Afghanistan to India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and his home country of Sri Lanka. All the dishes in this deeply personal collection, spiced with the flavours of Peter’s life and travels, reflect the diversity of the regions, their legendary hospitality, their energy and excitement, extraordinary landscapes and rich history.

In his book, Peter explores a goldmine of plant-based flavours in recipes for street foods; pulses and legumes; salads; dairy-based dishes; curries, stir-fries and stews; rice; soups; chutneys; and sauces. They are supported by detailed glossaries of ingredients, as well as advice on setting up a subcontinental pantry, tempering and blending spices, and adapting authentic regional cooking methods for the home kitchen.

Chef Peter Kuruvita, says “This book is a reflection of the changing dialogue about what we eat, as the world embraces the idea of a meal where flesh is not the main event. Lands of the Curry Leaf is a celebration of all things vegetable and their growing prominence at our tables. Showing that vegetables, grains and pulses can be culinary stars, I take simple, honest, health-giving ingredients, adding a host of exciting spices, transforming them into a complete and joyous meal.

“I look forward to meeting guests one-on-one and sharing my journey at the launch at Novotel Sydney Manly Pacific,” concluded Peter.
