What you'll do

The vivid colours and flavours of curry spices, coconut milk and sweet caramelised onion await in this popular Sri Lankan food evening, with Cooking It.

You’ll discover classic Sri Lankan flavours and incredible curry dinners, as well as authentic local recipes. The dishes made will depend on fresh produce available and could include:

  • Jackfruit curry
  • Potato curry
  • Pol sambol - coconut, lime, shallot and chilli relish
  • Watalappan - cardamom spiced coconut flan

For the majority of this experience your chef host will demo the cooking, while you sit back and enjoy a glass of wine or beer, but each guest will make their own Sri Lankan 'string hoppers'. These are tasty nests of rice, flour and noodles cooked to create spirals that are perfect served with fish or potato curry. Enjoy a range of delicious dishes and keep the recipes to recreate each one at home in this mouthwatering celebration of Sri Lanka.

Your host


Monica is the founder of Cooking It. She was born in Barcelona but has called Bristol home for almost 30 years. Monica grew up around food and could regularly be found in the kitchen of her grandparents’ restaurant, soaking up all the flavours and recipes - so much so she still loves making the tapas recipes she learnt as a child. She returns to Barcelona often to carry on discovering new recipes in her family’s restaurants and patisseries. When Monica isn’t sharing her cooking know-how, you’ll find her enjoying wine with friends and feeding people - often her four daughters and their friends.
