Private cooking class with local family

Enjoy a private Sri Lankan cooking class in Colombo

The essence of a private cooking class in Colombo

Embrace your inner chef and spice things up in the kitchen learning about Sri Lanka’s flavourful cuisine and traditional family styles. Warmly hosted in the home of a local Sri Lankan family, discover secret recipes, treasured spices and taste delicious home-cooked fare. Drawing inspiration from a rich culinary heritage head off to the nearby market with a local family and pick and choose your appetising produce for your menu.

Gather in the kitchen to prepare delectable dishes including steam rice, dhal curry, ambultiyal fish, coconut sambol and sweet desserts. Boasting a vibrant range of colour and flavour combinations, these meals are prepared in such a way that they are easy to replicate at home. Bonding over food with families who open their home, apart from learning to cook a Sri Lankan meal, you can enjoy your lunch or dinner after your cooking lesson and feel relaxed in a different culture.
