'As enticing as a soft breeze through Galle, and equally delectable, Weligama is spice-scented, evocative and the perfect introduction to Sri Lankan Cooking.' - Tom Parker Bowles

'Emily is a wonder and gets to the heart and soul of Sri Lankan food. Reading her beautiful, delicious recipes I feel desperate to start cooking!' - Margot Henderson
