          Best home/self cooked meal
          We have just come off of a 10day tour of SL on our bicycles and all agreed that this was a great experience with the best food so far. After s quick tour of the fish market to choose our fish and another to the veg market, we were taught the basics of preparing Sri Lankan food . Would recommend this to other travellers for sure.

          Sri Lankan Cooking Class
          This was an amazing cooking class, such beautiful people cooking true authentic Sri Lankan food. It was great to pick the fish we wanted to cook. There was so much food, cooked with lots of guidance. We definitely recommend this cooking class for anyone that loves real Sri Lankan rice and curry.

          Lovely family, great demonstration, delicious food
          Thoroughly enjoyed this cooking demonstration. We met our host in the market, where we picked up fresh produce to take back to his home. There, the family showed us how to cook authentic Sri Lankan dishes. They were very accommodating for both vegetarians, like myself, and other meat eaters in the group. Would highly recommend!

        This was a great experience. Sarath and his wife were lovely hosts, showing us how to make approx 10 dishes all with fresh spices and ingredients. We went to the local fish and vegetable market first and then back to his home, where we helped prepare the food. It was all delicious and we really enjoyed the whole experience. We would highly recommend doing this cooking class.

        Lovely man - calm, friendly and welcoming. We chose a fresh tuna from the fish market and a large selection of vegetables (unfortunately most of them are unavailable in the UK) and Sarath proceeded to show us how to prepare and cook about ten different curries - everyone of which was delicious. It was a great morning and we left replete. Many thanks, Sarath

        We visited here during our trip to Galle, and were blown away buy the hospitality shown to us. We were able to go choose a fresh fish from the market and then cook around 10 different traditional dishes. It was truly an experience we will never forget, thank you again!

        This was a brilliant experience. We were really pleased we joined Sarath and his wife for the demonstration of Sri Lankan cookery. The results were magnificent and the hospitality second to none.

        It was a great experience with 10 curries and desert. They show us how to make all the curries with their authentic spices and condiments .

        They were taking enough time for us to take down notes . Also every minute thing was explained . Very friendly and hospitable .

        Mr Sarath and his assistant was fabulous.

        They are also very well informed about the cooking and food.

        Wow, wow, wow!

        I have been lucky to travel to many countries and one of my favourite things to do is do a cooking class wherever I go. This was by far the best one. We were shown the local markets by Sarath, picked the freshest produce and ingredients and then cooked it all in a lovely home. Sarath was extremely knowledgeable about all produce, local Sri Lankan vegetables and was extremely patient and welcoming.

        Would highly recommend.
