Sri Lankan cuisine is one of the complex and unique cuisines of South Asia. Due to its proximity to South India the cuisine of India shows some influence, yet is in many ways quite distinct. As a major trade hub, it draws influence from colonial powers that were involved in Sri Lanka and by foreign traders. Our cooking class provides you with an opportunity to learn more about the little known cuisine.
Sri Lanka has long been renowned for its spices. Traders from all over the world, who came to Sri Lanka, brought their native cuisines to the island, resulting in a rich diversity of cooking styles and techniques.
Many Sri Lankan curries are easy and quick to cook. The ingredients for the dishes we have chosen are available in most countries. We encourage couples and families to share this experience here so you can replicate it back at home. Keep it simple and social.
