Best Cooking Lesson in Sri Lanka

This is an in-depth cooking class, not your typical 2 ingredient simple tourist cooking class. You prepare a multi-course meal, eyeballing portions and tasting along the way.

You are invited into Duneeshya's home kitchen for a hands on experience and adorable conversation.

Best Cooking Lesson in Sri Lanka

A very pleasant and informative day. Duneeshya was a very good teacher and was also very patient with out attempts at local cooking. I’m only sorry we couldn’t take our leftovers back to the hotel with us.

City Tour with a Licensed Tour Guide

We had a great day touring Colombo with Prasana. His small A/C people carrier was spotlessly clean and the A/C was a huge bonus as it was a sweltering day ( 30*C ). We had our own itinerary which Prasana followed and he added a bit more interesting sights as these were enroute to our tour destinations. He is such a friendly and helpful guy and took us to a money changer ( enroute again so as not to waste precious time ) and he personally changed £10 for us. Again he had advised us how much we needed after ascertaining that we were not going to do much shopping but perhaps may purchase some local fruits from the market. We visited a wonderful Kovil which had a wonderful interior architecture and huge vaulted ceilings and explained to us what we were witnessing and the customs. Then onto Gangaramaya Buddhist temple which is just so beautiful and reverent , before walking over to Saleem Melaka temple by the Beira Lake. Then we stopped for coffee ( where there was working strong WiFi for us to catch up with emails etc ) before visiting Independence Square and then onto the Independance arcades nearby for a wonderful Sri Lankan lunch. After weeks of bland cruise ship fare , the food was a much needed welcome treat. We drove around to various sights , Galle Face hotel and esplanade , Jami mosque ( sadly there was nowhere close to park to take good pictures ), the Workd Trade towers , the iconic Lotus Tower and the Victoria park ( can’t remember what the local name of the park is ) . Or final destination was Maning Market ( where the locals visited ) and it’s a gritty place but we were delighted to find local fruits such as mangosteens , sour sop , jackfruit and bananas and mangoes . We take away delightful memories of our tour in Colombo which was made possible by Prasana in a seamless smooth way. Thank you Prasana for looking after us so well. Aibowan 🙏🙏🙏
