Full description
Each guest gets to prepare a Sri Lankan meal guided by a Sri Lankan chef at their own cooking stations using their own ingredients (provided by the chef) Duration: 03 Hours Class Times: Lunch Class: 11.00 AM - 14.00 PM (including the meal), Dinner Class: 17.00 PM - 20.00 PM (including the meal) The customer will come with us to the buzzling Pettah food market where we will purchase all ingredients for the meal! Our chef will take the customer to the market from our cooking studio in a Tuk Tuk or a car depending on weather. Well at the colorful market our chef will not only teach the customer about the various ingredients and how to see if they are fresh but also about the history of the market itself! There will be an essentially Sri Lankan home-cooked rice and curry meal being taught to you. You will learn hands-on, how to make staples such as dhal curry and/or breadfruit curry. There will also be a meat or fish item on the menu. After making some mouthwatering dishes, you will be taste testing them by having them as part of your meal (lunch or dinner depending on your start time).
