The whole experience including market tour, cooking class and eating will take approx 4.5 hours. Come with us to the buzzing Pettah food market where we will purchase all ingredients for your meal! Our chef will take you to the market from our cooking studio in a Tuk Tuk or a car depending on weather. Well at the colorful market our chef will not only teach you about the various ingredients and how you see if they are fresh but also about the history of the old market itself! After the market tour you will head back to the cooking studio where the rice and curry class will begin. Once you have arrived at our lovely little kitchen in the very heart of Colombo we will start by teaching you how to open a coconut. Coconuts are the foundation of Sri Lankan cooking and you will make your own coconut milk among other things! Thereafter we will move on to cook a number of traditional Sri Lankan curries and accompanying salads. Throughout the class we will tell you all about the various herbs and spices being used as well as where all vegetables come from. When you have finished cooking your Rice and Curry we will head to the dining area and enjoy it all together with some drinks, a traditional dessert and a good conversation!
I am a keen traveller and I am passionate about cooking. When I visit new countries I always try to book a cooking class. It is not only a great way to learn about local food but also to learn about new cultures. I am now happy that I can give that experience to visitors coming to Sri Lanka! At Auntys I have two co-host, Ishani and Udani, both of them are both doing our street food tours and cooking class. We love meeting new people and teach them how to make Sri Lankan rice and curry :) Ishani is a great chefs and in addition to being an expert in Sri Lankan food she is great at baking. Udani has a true passion for traditional cooking and she also loves doggies.

We will start the class by going to the market. That will take 1.15 min in total. Then we will be in our small house in the middle of Colombo located on a very cozy street away from all the buzzing traffic. This particular street is one of those places where all our friendly neighbours know each other and socialize out on the street itself. Considering how much Colombo has developed recently this street offers a lovely blast from the past.
最多可有8位年满6周岁的参与者参加。 Anyone who is interested in cooking and/or eating as well as learning about Sri Lanka from us locals. No prior cooking experience required at all!
You don't need to bring anything!
