Episode 4: Emily | Weligama

The importance of taking every opportunity, developing a new style of cooking using local seasonal produce from the UK with flavour principles from Sri Lanka and the journey of personal development that creating Weligama, the book, has taken Emily on. 

We sit down with Emily from Weligama to discuss the process of creating her new book WELIGAMA – Recipes from Sri Lanka, which launched last week!! It was so exciting to hear all about how she developed a new style of cuisine, mixing local seasonal produce from the UK with flavour principles she learned in Sri Lanka. We also talked about running a market stall, doing what scares you and how writing the book became a journey of personal development. There are also some great tips for cooking the perfect curry and where to find specialist ingredients.
