This is a semi-hands on cooking class led by the laconic Lanka. Our group of 10 was allocated various tasks throughout the evening - the class runs from 5pm to around 8pm - including chopping, shredding, slicing, stirring. We were introduced to some interesting dishes,...More

This class costs 2000 rupees (£10) and was a good introduction to cooking some of the meals that we had eaten already during our time in Sri Lanka. The class started at 5 and we cooked until about half 7 before sitting down to eat...More
