"A wonderful tour of a lesser-known cuisine. If you dined out and ordered Leela's Chilaw crab curry you'd make a spectacle of yourself, coating your wrists in gravy rich with coconut, curry leaves, chile, garlic and cumin, flecking your face with bits of crab shell. At home, only your family will stare, and they'll be a mess, too." --NICK FOX, New York Times
