Amazing experience
Mar. 2020 • Friends
We weren’t sure what to do on a day in Colombo towards the end of our trip. My niece suggested a market and cooking class . Best choice ever, Ishani was very informative and made the cooking easy to learn and fun . There was a set menu that you learned and even have options if you are vegan . The food prep is for 1 person but really it was a lot! My recommendation is do this at the end of your trip otherwise you’ll be comparing everyone’s food to what you made . Can’t lie it was the best we ate !

I have been keen to do a cooking class is Sri Lanka, so my sister-in-law and I booked this one online. We met Nim near the fresh food markets, we had a leisurely walk around while he explained all the different varieties of fruit and vegetables. We were able to choose between chicken or fish, and a vegetable dish. We chose chicken and eggplant. After buying ingredients required we headed back to the headquarters.
When we arrived we sat and enjoyed a cool wood apple drink (something new to us!). After having a chat we then headed into the cooking area, very well set up.
Along with our chosen dishes we also made sambal and roti. We learnt a lot, quite different to the Sri Lankan curries we eat and make at home. The experience took about 5 hours all up. There is a large lounge room very close to the kitchen/ cooking area so possibly people with young children may be able to bring there children with some activities to keep them busy. Not sure, but worth asking, it would be nice for our husbands to join us in this experience next time! Our host, was very interesting and friendly, it was good to have time to chat to find out more about Sri Lanka.
I would definitely recommend.
