Meet your host, Damith & Dinesh

Host on Airbnb since 2016
  • Identity verified
I have enjoyed cooking from a young age (especially during times my mom was ill and bedridden). Today I am excellent at Sri Lankan cuisine. But because I have also travelled a lot (outside of Sri Lanka), I am able to tweak our local cuisine to suit a more international palette.

My background is in advertising (Creative Director) but since 2016 I have quit and taken on running Foozoo, a company that offers accommodation (Mahasen by Foozoo & Mahasen Terrace by Foozoo) as well as curated travel to Sri Lanka (Foozoo Travel). I enjoy interacting with guests and showcasing our wonderful culture, complex social life and all the diversity. These Sri Lankan Spice & Rice evenings gives me a chance to have fun doing it all and let you join in on a fun and spicy ride for the evening.
