Private home cooking class

Back Back

A brilliant way to spend a morning and afternoon in Colombo to get to know the culinary flavors of the country is to join your charming host at her home and join her at the stove and participate in ‘Cooking by Color’. Drawing inspiration from her Malay heritage and the rich traditions of her Sinhalese and Tamil friends and neighbors, she has devised a repertoire of rices, curries, sambols and salads that differ in taste, aroma, color and flavor.

Experience Overview

This professional cooking class takes place in your host’s home in the suburbs of Colombo. She has the demonstration on the terrace where she will cook and show you how to prepare a range of delicious Sri Lankan dishes, which when presented are indeed colorful and distinct in taste. Your host’s no-fuss approach means that the art of curry making is made simple and easy to replicate at home. After cooking you will sit down to enjoy lunch together. The program includes fresh fruit juice, lunch and a recipe leaflet to take home as well as a sample of your host’s freshly ground spices.

Managing Expectations

It is important to remember that, whilst they are experts in their field, the people who run or host our experiences are not necessarily used to working in the tourism industry and may not offer the level of service you would find at a five-star hotel. For example, instead of a formal lecture, you may get a relaxed conversation where open discussion is encouraged. All of our hosts are, however, extremely engaging, knowledgeable and passionate about educating visitors about their chosen subject and we have worked with them to ensure that they deliver worthwhile, fulfilling experiences. We welcome feedback, so please let us know what you thought and if you think any improvements could be made to the experiences we offer.
