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!?

At the heart of the evening is some utterly delicious food, which would be enough, but combined with the Sri lankan cooking tips & tricks and the warmth and comfort provided by the hosts makes this a lovely experience and would definitely recommend it.

A really fantastic way to spend an evening. Our hosts were very genuine, thoughtful and accommodating. We never felt rushed at any point and they welcomed all conversation topics even those unrelated to the experience. Would 100% recommend to anyone who loves cooking, eating or learning new cultural experiences. Thanks again!

We really enjoyed our Sri Lankan cuisine course. Nilman opened his door into his home and made us both feel instantly comfortable. If you are looking for a different evening where at the end you get stuck into one of the best curries you have ever eaten this is the course for you. Again thank you so much for the experience Nilman :-)

This was a delightful and very tasty experience, I am looking forward to recreating this dish for my friends now that I'm back home! They were lovely hosts, they were very welcoming and made us laugh too. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and we would love to join them again in the future if we were in the area!

We had the best evening! Nilman & Sharini were the perfect hosts/teachers - they took genuine interest in us, asking a lot of questions about us and our tastes while telling us about Sri Lankan culture and cuisine. The food was incredible (there was so much of it), they were very supportive and took us through the process slowly, ensuring we fully understood what we were doing and reasoning behind it. This was our first time doing a AirBnB experience and a cooking class and it was amazing! Definitely would do it again!

Fantastic evening with family for a birthday celebration. Hosts were super friendly and welcoming, really relaxed atmosphere and lovely company. Cookery guidance was interesting and well paced, and the results were AMAZING. We loved it and had a great night. Left stuffed full of Sri Lankan vegan cuisine and smiling. Thanks so much for a really memorable evening xxxx
