The sweetness from the apples and the piquant caraway seeds complement the fragrant spicing of Nuremberg sausages so well. Paired with a glass of cold beer, and maybe some potato wedges and beer battered onion rings, well that’s my Oktoberfest right at home! These Elephant House sausages are available at Spar and Arpico supermarkets as well as via https://www.meathouse.lk/oktoberfest-range Also, did you check out my other Oktoberfest recipe?

Beer-braised Weisswurst Sausages

I served these up with a creamy garlic mash which was the perfect accompaniment for the braise. The kick from the beer combined with tomatoes and caramelized onions creates the perfect flavor palette for the gamey Weisswurst to shine. It was absolutely perfect for the cosy weather, paired up of course, with a mug of cold beer. Instead of beer, you can substitute chicken or beef stock (but I it would not And also, these Elephant House sausages are available at Spar and Arpico supermarkets including online at https://www.meathouse.lk/oktoberfest-range The post Beer-braised Weisswurst Sausages ap ..read more

You’ve probably come across this unique building in the Galle Fort and wondered what it would be to see the inside of it. Well, I had the distinct pleasure. And I’m here to tell you all about it! A little bit of history Originally an 18th century Dutch mansion, the Fort Printers was once a mansion, then a school and eventually, a traditional printing company. This is where the inspiration for the rather unique name of the hotel has come from. I immediately fell in love with the aesthetics of the place. The Galle Fort is and will always be one of my favorite places on earth and having always pr ..read more

Club Ceylon, Negombo – Doing it right!

Club Ceylon opened its doors in Negombo recently and while we missed the opening due to a prior commitment, we were invited to a quiet dinner later. I do not rave and that is a statement. But @clubceylon housed in a beautifully restored colonial mansion has that rare sophistication, elegance and that ‘je ne sais quoi’ that is part and parcel of the place. I loved the place instantly. It is very rare that I connect with a place at this level and this right here is a place after my own heart. We pretty much had everything on the menu & waddled home, tummies full & happy. Here’s ..read more

This place caught me by the heartstrings. What struck me the most about this Kandy hotel, The Theva Residency is how exclusively private it is. Tucked away amidst the peaceful slopes of Hanthana mountain range, this is the ideal hideout if you’re tired of the crowds and just want some quietude to let your soul let down her hair and unwind. It was certainly just what I needed at this point in time! I am truly impressed of their COVID-19 screening process. I try to avoid walking into hotels and the like these days because the amount of harassment and manhandling that you go through is horrendous ..read more

Mackerel and Egg Pastries

I’m not a fish eater. As silly as it sounds, I hate the fishy in the fish. But strangely though, I seem to just adore these mackerel and egg parcels. Flaky, buttery crust enveloping the strong flavored mackerel and the custardy yolk of half an egg is just the most sublime feeling on earth. The strong taste of mackerel is what you must rely on to cut through that rich buttery pastry and the egg is what you rely on to cut through that pungent mackerel. I cannot think of a more genius combination. One bite and your teeth sinks into this pillow of softness and so much flavor that you wouldn’t know ..read more
