Classic Sri Lankan Cookery Class

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.

Age restrictions: 14+
