The second series from Chef Peter Kuruvita begins tonight on SBS ONE at 8:00pm. It is called Island Feast.
Fresh from his personal journey through Sri Lanka, Peter Kuruvita’s passion for culinary adventure propels him on a dynamic exploration of the island nations of our closest neighbours. Peter takes the route less travelled through what is a small region bursting with cultural diversity, island-hopping from the Philippines to Indonesia followed by a segue to Vanuatu before coming to rest in the scenic surrounds of the Cook Islands. Through heartfelt interactions with local families, Peter experiences the spirit of each community’s rich culture and learns the secrets of their unique cuisine.
