Peter Kuruvita

Celebrity Chef

Born in London, Peter Kurivita spent time as a child in Sri Lanka where he was introduced to the delights of cooking by watching his grandmother prepare ancient Sri Lankan dishes in her simple kitchen.

A later move to Sydney led to early experience working alongside Greg Doyle at Rogues restaurant and nightclub, where Doyle introduced him to the finer side of cooking, followed by a stint at the one Michelin star Rue St Jacques in London. Peter has since worked at hotels and resorts all over the world (Four Seasons Hotel, Philadelphia USA; Yasawa Island Lodge, Fiji) and some of Sydney’s top restaurants (Barrenjoey House; Bilson’s; Hayman Island Resort).

MY SRI LANKA WITH PETER KURUWITA shown in the SBS channel is the best ever show I have seen for a long time in an Australian channel. You are making us proud to be Sri Lankan/ Australians. This is a very nice show which shows the beauty of Sri Lanka and the hospitality of the Lankans. If possible you should try and get this telecasted in other channels as well(7,9,10) where most people watch. Sri Lankan Tourist Board should take initiative on this. WELL DONE and GOOD LUCK!!!

Hello Peter, I have a lovely villa on the beach in the south of Sri Lanka. I am so looking forward to your cooking show, I really hope that it shows the wonderful food, colours and amazing scenery of this wonderful country. Sri Lanka really needs people like you to show off the great things available there, not too much is known about Sri Lanka, in fact so many people look at me in utter amazement and ask where??? Why would you have a villa there? I say it is because of the people, the sincere generous Sri Lankan people. I am really looking forward to Thursday.... Thank you
