A Whirlwind Culinary Tour of Sri Lanka, Where Coconut Reigns Supreme

The Perennial Plate team captures the deliciously dizzying experience of traveling through the small island nation.

Warning: This video contains graphic footage of (really) good food.

On a trip across Southeast Asia to document sustainable food practices, the team from Perennial Plate stops for some delectable treats in Sri Lanka. While Sri Lanka and India share many of the same flavors, the cuisine on this tiny island is quite unique. Sri Lankans in particular enjoy a healthy amount of seafood, which they bathe in curried spices and serve with coconut milk.

In this charming short, series creators Daniel Klein and Mirra Fine condense two weeks’ worth of eclectic characters and places into one mouthwatering montage.
