What you'll do

We will begin with an introduction to Sri Lankan cooking- what are the basics, common ingredients and where to source them in the UK. We will then proceed to make two dishes together. Let us know in advance if you have any dietary requirements. Sri Lankan cuisine is vegan friendly! When the curries are bubbling and the rice is cooked, we welcome you to taste test your food! You can package it and take it home to share with friends and family or have a seat at our table and experience some real Sri Lankan hospitality.

Sri Lankan food is all the vibe at the moment. My wife (Sharini) and I welcome you to our home kitchen where we will teach you how to make some traditional Sri Lankan dishes passed down to us from our grandmothers and mothers. You can choose the spice level you are comfortable with as taste testing at the end of the lesson is mandatory!

We regularly host dinners for our friends and would love to teach our guests how to prepare some tasty and easy Sri Lankan Dishes. All ingredients will be sourced in the UK.

Are you ready to learn some unique recipes which you can easily cook and surprise your family and friends with!?

I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Nilam and Sharini. From the very beginning I was warmly welcomed into their home with delicious ginger tea whilst learning about the Sri Lankan cuisine and sharing our experiences. Cooking the dishes was made very enjoyable, given the option to get involved or watch as Nilam cooked. I choose to be involved which was all the more exciting for the sensory experience! The result was a combination of absolutely scrumptious dishes which all complimented one another. I would highly reccomend this experience to anyone, whether you're alone or in a group!

Great experience offered by Nilman. He is clearly passionate about Sri Lankan cuisine. I would strongly recommend this. We came as a couple who know a bit of Indian style cooking and cook curries at home but we still learnt a lot about the mix of spices used in Sri Lankan cuisine. Nilman is also a great host and told us about how he learnt to cook Sri Lankan food. A great evening and a great meal to accompany it.

Absolutely wonderful cooking experience, Nilman was so friendly, patient and informative and passionate about the Sri Lankan flavours and spices and stories of his mother’s cooking. Great value for money and the pleasure to sit and enjoy the meal afterwards with another very friendly couple was the icing on the cake. ( so to speak) . Would not hesitate to recommend this.

Nilman was a wonderful host with a passion for cooking. We both had a wonderful time, learnt a lot about Sri Lankan cooking and prepared some delicious food along the way. My 14 year old daughter had an excellent time and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and has left both of us with an appreciation of Sri Lankan food and culture. I cannot recommend this experience enough - 5 stars..
