The unsung banana leaf 🍌🌴🍛
Practical, versatile and a homage to Kate Spade; the humble #bananalife.
Russell's friend, Upali, loves to cook lamprais, a Dutch-inspired Sri Lankan dish consisting of rice and various types of curry; all gently cooked in a banana leaf. There's something magical about eating from a banana leaf. The smoothness of the surface when you collect the food with the tip of your fingers, the convenience (kenyamanannya) of no washing up, and the smug-satisfaction of not using any plastic.
Here's our small collection of food served on the wonderful banana leaves.
We love the banana leaf so much, Maria bought a banana leaf-shaped Kate Spade clutch, just weeks before the sad news of Kate passing away.
