A note from a Safari style expedition from Peter  kuruvita

This guy came floating past in a canoe,” says Kuruvita, whose culinary expertise, marked by his Sri Lankan ancestry, has made him one of Australia’s hottest chefs.

“I jumped in and we rowed across to the other side. It was a wilderness. Another man came out of the trees with a rifle over his shoulder and we followed him to his thatched hut. His corn had been eaten by monkeys; elephants had trodden over parts of his farm patch. He really didn’t have very much.

“He picked some manioc root from his garden and boiled it; we caught some fish from the river, and had a meal. We realised it was the real thing, the hidden Sri Lanka.”
