Then there’s your foodie friend, the one who’s hard to buy for, and has maybe had a hard year. I promise you, there’s nowhere else on the planet where you can get a Sri Lankan cookbook, homemade curry powder, AND a Sri Lankan pumpkin curry tea towel, all in one glorious package. $65.
Sometimes you just want the big beautiful coffee table book, full of photos — my friend, the Feast hardcover is for you. And with your choice of tea towels; wouldn’t it be nice to browse this cookbook and simultaneously dream of building a writing shed? You can do both, at the same time, with this holiday package — $60 for a hardcover of Feast + tea towel of your choice.
I mean, you COULD make your own curry powder. But life is busy, so feel free to have a little shipped to you, along with a tea towel AND a copy of Feast. (No photos in the paperback, to keep cost down as much as possible, but you’ll get a link to an online archive of lovely pics.) This lovely package will run you $55.
Maybe you don’t need curry powder, because you’re happy to make your own? (There’s a recipe on my website, and in the cookbook.)
But you’d really like a tea towel (maybe the 2021 calendar towel, marking what will hopefully become a better year) with your paperback copy of Feast? Can do. An even $50 + shipping will make that happen.
If one tea towel is good, two must be better, right? Me, I like having at least one hanging on my dishwasher handle, and another on the stove. It was really fun coming up with coordinating designs for these.
($42 for the pair, coming soon to the Serendib Kitchen shop.)
Made it home, Thai takeout for dinner, because between me being sick and Kevin covering for me at home, plus the first week of classes, we’re both wiped, and the kids are tired too. But I *was* feeling well enough to go down just now and make myself a cup of tea to soothe my cough.
Wild Sweet Orange tea, with fresh ginger, honey, cloves, and a slice of clementine. Sipping it now while I watch the super-dramatic Master Chef TV show. (First season in America, so from some years back.) I swear half the show is dramatic pauses. But I did love watching Sheetal Bhagat compete. 🙂
She made it most of the way, and I just googled and found that she now has a spiced tequila line: Spice Note — the article I read said that her tequilas come in Cinnamon and Cumin. Cool — I’m still a novice cocktail person, but I want to try it out for Serendib Kitchen. Once I’m over this cold!
Let us boldly go onward into a restful & restorative weekend!
