The Spice of Life. Photos from Sri Lanka

Leaving the cold of  Burgundy this winter we headed east to the island of Sri Lanka in search of heat, spices and culinary inspiration. After the renovations here in Auxey-Duresses it has been a while since I have pulled on my back pack. And how I missed it. Touring the island for a five weeks, this was a culinary adventure filled bustling markets, exciting new flavours, trains and wonderful people.  

We returned rested, refreshed, inspired and loaded with spices ready for a new season at The Hungry Cyclist Lodge. 

Enjoy the gallery, click the images to enlarge them, and if you come by to The Lodge in the future don't be surprised to find a little Sri Lankan influence in our cooking.
