Most foodies love to read about new foods, and since Sri Lanka is not somewhere most of us have visited, Rambutan: Recipes from Sri Lanka will definitely be of interest. Not only is Sri Lanka an exotic country, but the food served there is also exotic and amazing.

This excellent cookbook is beautiful enough to be a coffee table book, but the recipes are appealing and most foodies and cooks will want to prepare several of the dishes. The author, Cynthia Shanmugalingam, has included chapters on ingredients, the customs, and culture of Sri Lanka, as well as amazing photographs that will make everyone not only want to sample the food, but also to travel there and witness this great country first hand.

There are recipes here that will appeal to almost everyone, and every dish is pictured, which will make everyone’s mouth water. The recipes are easy-to-follow, although many are quite involved, and many will require a trip to a good Asian or Indian market. The results will be worth it, though. The book is heavy on curry recipes, which will delight most curry lovers as well as those who are adventurous. While ingredients and amounts are in metric, there are conversion tables, which are very helpful.

Anyone who wants to expand their love of food, will want to try cooking from this cookbook, and try some new dishes.
