My Sri Lanka with Peter Kuruvita

Sydney chef Peter Kuruvita takes a break from his harbour-side restaurant to lead us on a journey through his ancestral home of Sri Lanka. Using his grandmother’s recipes as a guide, we follow Peter across the country, from seaside fishing village to lofty tea field, experiencing the wealth of Sri Lanka’s beauty, culture and culinary diversity along the way. With Peter at the helm, there is no shortage of memories to share, or dishes to discover in this authentic re-telling of a unique and alluring country and its cuisine.


Island Feast with Peter Kuruvita

In this ten-part series, Peter is back and takes us on an adventurous journey. He explores the diversity in food and cultures of countries that are made up of thousands of islands. Peter will get under the skin of these very different diverse cultures; he will open our eyes to the extreme variety of food that our closest neighbours enjoy, and will show how vastly it can differ from one island to the next.


Mexican Fiesta with Peter Kuruvita

Renowned chef Peter Kuruvita embarks on a breathtaking journey of culinary discovery through the vibrant, mouth-watering world of Mexican cuisine. His mission is to uncover the heart of Mexico’s food culture and let the passion of its people inspire his own take on some of their most prized dishes.

Peter Kuruvita travels the length and breadth of the country and discovers a land that has had more influence on the global palate than any other country. If it weren’t for Mexico, we wouldn’t have tomatoes, chilli, avocado, squash, vanilla, chocolate and that most staple of ingredients – corn. What other country can claim such versatile favourites? From tacos to tamales, salsas to sizzling pork, Peter discovers it all before attempting his own versions at some of the most eye-popping locations he’s ever cooked in. Think you know Mexican food? Think again!
