Recipe Diaries

Country Available: Canada, USA

A series of encounters where recipes and traditions are passed on as culinary currency, where food and travel foster friendship. From the mist-shrouded rice paddies of Sri Lanka and the marketplaces of India to the family campfire at their farm back in North America, The Recipe Diaries celebrates authors Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Duguid’s reverence for food, their respect for the people who prepare it, and their inspired willingness to share the experience. The documentary accompanies the couple on their latest journey in the publishing world as they develop and research their new book “Mangoes and Curry Leaves” about the people and the foods of the Indian Subcontinent.
