We first had a great lunch at Mama's and then I learned of their cooking course which is a great deal at R3000. The cooking course was the highlight of my time in Galle, especially with the 1-2-1 personal attention from Mama.
Cooking course began at 0930 and it was just me - the lessons are 1 on 1. We went to the market to buy spices and vegetables as Mama does everyday for the restaurant. All the shopping and tuk tuk to the market are included. Mama and her daughter showed me where to buy the food, what is good, explained the spices and all the ingredients. We also went to the fish market to see what's good for the day. After about an hour of learning, we then we back to the kitchen where I helped and took notes on 9 different curries! Amazing! I learned so much and asked so many questions.
I then ate some of the lovely dishes and the rest were served to paying customers and to my friend that dropped by. It was a fantastic course in a lovely setting with Mama and her daughters who really care.
The location has moved and unfortunately they lost the roof terrace. To make things confusing, the old location still has the name Mama's - the new owners need to remove this and perhaps benefiting from the confusion! Nonetheless, the food is wonderful and for R 550 for a set curry and rice lunch, it's a steal.
I really recommend the cooking course or if you just want lunch, it's great!
