Dulshan was the perfect host! My family and I all joined Dulshan to prepare and cook a Sri Lankan curry. Dulshan was full of energy and enthusiasm as he told us all about Sri Lanka which gave a wonderful context for the food we were about to prepare. As we prepared and cooked the food, Dulshan was engaging and fun, making everyone feel at ease. The instructions were made easy to follow and Dulshan gave guidance to manage the spice levels for each individual. The food was delicious. Overall, it was a fabulous cookery course. I had such fun! Dulshan was an exceptional host, guide and teacher! I would highly recommend!

Dulshan is so friendly and welcoming! We learned how to make an incredibly delicious curry and enjoyed every second of the process. He engaged us throughout with interesting information about Sri Lanka and explained why all the steps of cooking the curry were important. We had such a lovely time and had an amazingly delicious meal. I highly recommend this course. And I definitely have moved Sri Lanka to the top of my travel wish list! Thank you Dulshan!!

My family did a group cooking class together as a Christmas present to my mom. Dulshan made our evening so fun, enjoyable, and tasty. He had us laughing and smiling throughout the entire class. In addition to teaching us how to make delicious chicken curry, he shared wonderful fun facts about Sri Lanka’s history, culture, and cuisine with us. Dulshan really took an interest in our family and our goals for the class. He remembered anecdotes I had shared weeks before when I first booked the class and he was just a joy to be with. He also customized his cooking instructions to our personal spice comfort levels and stovetop heating options across three different states and at 4am his time. Can’t recommend him highly enough! I hope we’ll all get to meet in person someday.

Yesterday night Dulshan welcomed us to Sri Lankan culture and cuisine. We made two lovely vegetarian curry’s, one with lentils and one with potatoes. This was not just cooking, but a wonderful inclusion in Sri Lankan cuisine. Thanks Dulshan for our experience! Would definitely recommend to book this experience to others :)

Our evening with Dulshan was amazing! Dulshan was warm, welcoming and a great chef! Not only did he teach us a wonderful and delicious recipe but he shared the history of Sri Lanka, which made eating the dish afterward all the more special. Dulshan was patient, funny and a wiz with technology. He had 2 cameras set up so that we could see the normal view and close ups of the food, which helped us follow his instructions perfectly. The chicken curry was delicious! I would definitely recommend this experience. I am looking forward trying more of Dulshan's dishes soon! Thank you Dulshan!
