About this deal

To me it’s much more than a cookbook, it’s the story of Hoppers told through imagery, recipes and personal memories. The Hopper originated in south India (Tamil Nadu and Kerala, to be precise) where it was known as ‘appa’ or ‘appam’. Amidst a plethora of extremely coveted recipes and absolutely stunning photographs lies the story of a very beautiful journey, which makes this cookbook a fantastic read as well. Hoppers’ restaurants celebrate the diversity of Sri Lankan and South Indian cuisine, with each location taking inspiration from different cultural aspects of this tropical region.

The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products. Abundant photography presents not only the finished dishes but images of cooks, market vendors, and farmers. My favourite versions are the ones found at The Dutch Burgher Union, Gallery Cafe at Paradise Road and Barefoot in Colombo. We are experiencing delays with deliveries to many countries, but in most cases local services have now resumed.

An amazingly intuitive recipe book, with lots of detail provided for each dish making it very easy to follow and create wonderful Sri Lankan food. The restaurant was awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand in 2017 alongside a number of other prestigious awards. It will want to make you cook, it will want to make you eat, it will fill your heart with warmth and it will want to make you get on the next flight to Sri Lanka. Over the years Karan has written travel features and recipes on Sri Lanka and southern India for major national and international publications including The Sunday Times, The Telegraph, The Guardian, National Geographic, Conde Naste Traveller, The ES Magazine, Bloomberg, The Financial Times; and appeared on Sunday Brunch, Great British Chefs, Sorted Food's YouTube channel and various food festivals across the UK.

Born in Mumbai, India, nearly a thousand miles away from the island nation, he has an eye for what makes this food distinctive.
