"How lucky are we to have Hoppers! First the restaurants, now the book, giving... a taste of the incredible riches of Sri Lanka. The recipes and the photos have such a transportive power. I love everything! But first on my list to try is the Hot Butter Squid, followed by an epic Buriani." – Yotam Ottolenghi
