THE GREAT GREEK philosopher Socrates might not have agreed with my philosophy of ‘live to eat’, but food can be both, sustaining and comforting, at the same time. Especially if you’re a gourmand. Amidst all the sorrow and heartbreak that the second wave of COVID-19 has brought, if there’s one thing that has kept me (and many of you, I bet!) sane, it is the innumerable recipes shared on social media. I am not turning into a baker overnight, but cooking can be truly therapeutic, I have discovered during the second lockdown. Hence, our Food Issue is all the more special.

with love, from sri lanka

MY JOURNEYS through Sri Lanka have birthed a culinary passion that is bound to last a lifetime. The island country has a rich repository of traditional dishes in which spices and textures come together in perfect harmony. Most of these recipes trickle down generations of family kitchens like heirlooms.
