What to expect
You will be welcome by freshly made fruit juice or a herbal drink, wander around the Villa & Check in to your room and get yourself refreshed & prepared for the market visit. local market will be a unique experience . It is similar to European Eco shops.  Sri Lanka`s grandmas picked fresh vegetables from their back yard soon before the preparation. Without visiting local market, you won`t have a deep understanding how to pick right vegetables, spices and other stuff properly. Cooking with Claypot is a unique experience. Clay pottery has been one of the oldest crafts in the country. A technically made and well-seasoned clay pot makes food tender and flavorful. The porous walls absorb water, which prevents food from going dry – therefore useful for long slow cooking. Researches have proved, food cooked in clay pots can be preserved for long as it has antibacterial acidic moisture. Explore Secrets Behind the Sri Lankan Kitchen. There are thousands of different types of curries in Sri Lanka, for which a vast variety of cooking techniques and ingredients are used. Sri Lankans are experts at using different cooking methods to produce totally different tastes. Sometimes, even locals can be confused by the cooking style if it is not easy to recognize by the usual color, aroma and taste. Your cozy Villa  is located in Capital of Sri Lanka, Walking distance to Sri Lankan Democratic Parliament, Immigration Office and beautiful Diyawanna lake. you will be free from hustle & bustle of the city & will be listening to the bird songs. This is the green belt of Colombo. 9km from City Center & at the exit of the expressway to the Colombo Airport. Here you will spend overnight with free breakfast.

Colombo Biggest Vegetable Market Tour
Apr 2019 • Couples
This cooking class with the rustic tour guide was my birthday gift from my husband as he knows that I love different cooking experiences. It was one amazing experience with fun and knowledge. We visited Colombo’s biggest vegetable market as the first part of our tour to pick our own veggies. And that is the biggest market ever I have visited. Chef, Nim was a cool character with a great sense of humour and he did a great job in giving us the best experience. We cooked 3 curries with rice which turned out to be the most delicious local food we tasted. Nim, gave us some simple tips and techniques that we can follow when making Sri Lankan food at home. I would say this is the best birthday gift I got in years.

Sri Lankan Vegan Cooking From Scratch
Feb 2019 • Couples
Indeed, everything made inside the kitchen is from scratch, from the sauces, paste, fillings, and appetizers. The chef keeps the class small enough to have your hands in every process. He has a good knowledge about what he is doing. The market trip is one of our favorites. The house and kitchen incredibly designed with a rustic interior. Thank you for such a wonderful evening and yummy food! Come back again.

50th Birthday Celebration: Colombo Market Trip and Vegan Cooking Class.
Mar 2019 • Family
My brother, my mother, and cousin who had traveled to Sri Lanka in celebration of her 50th birthday joined me in this cooking class. It was the best cooking class we’ve experienced. The Tour was started by visiting the market to pick up the fresh ingredients. It was a full guided tour and learned a lot about Sri Lankan fresh ingredients. Back to Rustic Local house and made our Sri Lankan dishes. The tour was fun and educational. Food is fabulous and the Highest recommendation.

Since going back home, I have managed to remake the first course with ease with the help of our three young boys I cannot suggest this cooking class enough. It was all came to my mind since I go back home specially their hospitality and kind friendship.
'The chef' - he was kind enough to share his knowledge on Buddhism with me and gave me very important leads for few local books regarding meditation. Thank you Nim and his team.

It was such a pleasant experience talking with a cooking teacher who explains thing so easily. More than that, the market tour and fully furnished kitchen made the whole experience unforgettable.

Productive Hands-On Cooking Class
Oct 2018 • Couples
This was my second cooking class in Sri Lanka. I heard the news about this place from a TripAdvisor forum. Out of all the Sri Lankan cookery classes that I researched and attend, this was the only one that said it was completely hands-on plus offered a trip to the local market to buy the ingredients. My chef was very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable, and I very much enjoyed the trip to the market with him. The setting for the class itself was beautiful and peaceful, and the dishes I learned to cook were delicious. I was even given the recipes to take home with me!. The accommodation was super !! Clean & Comfy. Very unique interior with huge spaces. I really love the place to stay & cook. we had a great time and surely come back again.
