What you'll do

To start your lovely day with us, we will take you to our local market where you will gain vast knowledge on local vegetables and spices. After buying all we need we head back to my villa for the cooking class. First, we will be cleaning the vegetables and do the preparations. Then we will start the real cooking with everybody getting hands-on experience. We will take a break in the middle for a beer and start making other dishes after some time. Once all the dishes are made we can sit for lunch or the dinner. After dinner we will drop you to your hotel if necessary.

Nim

I am a culinary enthusiast and a foodie who has done lot of researches on traditional Sri Lankan cooking, including authentic Sri Lankan dishes, traditional cooking methods and tools. Additionally, I have around 5 years of experience in handling culinary tours as a national guide. After seeing the pathetic fate of travelers who seeks an authentic experience, I decided to start a cooking class aiming to give guests a unique, hands-on cooking experience with my knowledge combined with the guiding experience. So, now I am living my dream of promoting authentic Sri Lankan food to the world
