    BEST EXPERIENCE
    It’s been an amazing experience, cooking with srilankan hostess. We had all the fresh products and different spices. We spent a really good time all together cooking traditional food and then eating all of it which was delicious. 100% recommended

    Brilliant, Authentic, Delicious
    10/10 recommend this cooking class. Ruwini the chef and demonstrator was so friendly and clear when explaining. We prepared and cooked the food together. We learnt a lot about the culture and food - and enjoyed the delicious meal after. Do not miss this experience when in Ella!

    Very amazing cooking class
    The cooking class with Ruwini (the chef) is very amazing! she is very kind and nice, an excellent chef of Sri Lankan cuisine. She can show you how with a few ingredients you can do a lot of dishes. With Her we cooked ten different dishes, all excellent. at the end of the course we ate what we cooked. Wonderfull dinner! I highly recommend this experience

    Amazing experience at the cooking class with Ruwini!!
    I cannot recommend this class enough!! It is absolutely incredible, Ruwini is such a caring wonderful teacher and cook. The food was some of the best I’ve had in Sri Lanka and the amount of dishes we learnt to make was incredible! 9 different things which each has a unique beautiful flavour. I am allergic to gluten and she made sure to organise for me to make my own rotti with different flour. So kind of her. You should 1000% go, best thing I’ve done in Sri Lanka 🥰

    Best cooking class in Ella!
    Best cooking class! Ruwini welcomes you at her home, starting with a cup of tea before starting the actual cooking class. She speaks English very well, learns you all about the ingredients and spices and guides you very well through the cooking. Together you make rice, multiple curries and extra's. It was a wonderful experience and we were very glad we found her! If you want to learn how to make Rice & Curries the Sri Lankan way (home made style) this is a must visit in Ella! After the cooking you get to eat all the delicious food you just prepared, it was awesome! You even get the recipes afterwards to try it at home yourself.

    Delicious and fun!
    Such a great cooking class, really good information and easy to follow. The food is delicious and fresh! The spice levels were also adjusted to suit our group. We can’t wait to recreate this at home!

    Amazing experience!
    The cooking class was amazing! Ruwani was sooo friendly and the food we prepared together was excellent 😊 I‘d definitely recommend going there and prepare your own curries - I learned many new things and the best is, that Ruwani will send us the recipes via Mail! Thanks for that wonderful evening, we really enjoyed it!

    WOW! The best food ever, thank you ❤️
    WOW! Absolutely cannot recommend this cookery class enough 😍 Ruwyni is an extremely kind and gentle lady who taught us these beautiful dishes. It was wonderful to talk and get to know more about her and her family, as well as the Sri Lankan culture. The food is UNREAL! Best I’ve had in Sri Lanka so far and some of the best of all time. The flavours are like a party in your mouth 🎉 It is a truly inspiring experience that is not to be missed. 100/10 you must come. Thank you so much ❤️❤️❤️

    Best cooking class!
    Best cooking class I've ever done! Myself and a friend spontaneously booked Honey Bee Garden after seeing it advertised close to the zip line in Ella. We had a warm welcome by Ruwyni who guided us through an 1hr and half cooking class. She was very kind, knowledgable and turned us into great chefs. Honey Bee Garden is in great location. Couple minute walk from noname cafe and the zip line. You definitely should visit! You are left with happy taste buds and a great experience.

    Best food in Sri Lanka
    Best food I’ve eaten in the whole of my Sri Lanka trip and so fun to learn to cook it. I can’t wait to go home and cook for everyone. Ruwyni is so friendly and really good at explaining everything. 10/10 experience :)

Ruwini was such a lovely hostess!!
It was such a big pleasure meeting her and learning how to cook Sri Lankan food with her, she explained everything in details. After the cooking class you can enjoy the delicious food.
A must when you‘re in Ella!

Thank you so much Ruwini - it was delicious!

Ruwini is a very lovely hostess. She explained everything wonderfully and gave us the opportunity to do it ourselves. The food she cooked was incredibly delicious and the best thing is that she gave us the recipes to try out.

Best experience of Sri Lanka! The cooking class was so fun and informative. We made a huge range of curries in only a couple of hours, and then got to eat them for dinner. They were so delicious; the best meal I’ve had on my trip! If you do one thing in Ella, do this class!

This was the best cooking class I’ve ever done! We made coconut milk from scratch, even cracking open the coconuts ourselves! We made so many curries, sambal and coconut rotis all with fresh delicious ingredients that we got to try along the way. The woman who ran the lesson was so funny and a great teacher. I can’t recommend this class any more!

Great local cooking class! We made some delicious food, with a lot of good explanations on how to make it when we're home. The owner understood glutenfree and she made sure everything we made was glutenfree. We even made glutenfree coconut roti, amazing!

The cooking class at Honey Bee Garden was fantastic. We made a variety of dishes which we were able to eat once cooked and they were so delicious. It was a 10/10 and people visiting Ella should include this activity. We are now looking forward to receiving the recipes so we can make the dishes at home. Will have to buy some clay pots and coconut spoons. Thank you for a wonderful class.
