Rick Stein Far Eastern Odyssey Sri Lanka, The Sunhouse, Galle.
In February 2008 Rick Stein visited Sri Lanka to film for his Far Eastern Odyssey programme. The Sri Lanka episodes are often on TV and freely available on U tube. Rick Stein and his team based themselves at The Sunhouse in Galle and several of the recipes used for the making of the series were prepared by Sunhouse chefs. Sunhouse guests can be taught these recipes by our Chefs.
Copies of Rick Stein's book which accompanies the series; "Rick Stein's Far Eastern Odyssey" are available on Amazon or from your local bookshop.
During his visit Rick Stein was the guest of Honour at the opening of the Sunhouse's restaurant The Bamboo Bar and Grill, set in the al fresco setting of the main courtyard and specializing in grilled seafood and fresh salads. The Sunhouse also has a Verandah restaurant and serves more informal food at it's award winning Dick's Bar, the venue for the local expatriate population and the knowledgeable traveller. Sample menus from all three locations can be seen on the Sunhouse website on the cuisine page.
