      Authentic Sri Lankan Home Cooking Class and Feast!
      This cooking class brings you into a warm Sri Lankan family home and Piumi walks you through everything you need to know about Sri Lankan cooking. From sambal, the vegetables, curry, rice and roti, you make it all from scratch and enjoy as a family afterwards. You can book for lunch or dinner, but my only advice is make it your main meal of the day as it's an incredible feast ! Thank you to Piumi and her family for such a great experience. 😊

      Wonderful cooking experience
      Piumi hosts a Sri Lankan cooking class in her home. The food was absolutely delicious and we learned many tips and tricks on how to cook Sri Lankan food. We made 10 different dishes and then enjoyed the meal Piumi and her family are super welcoming and I would recommend this activity to all visitors to Colombo!

      Superb, Friendly and great value
      5 out of 5 cooking experience. Piumi excelled showing us the spices and letting us cook the curries that we wanted. So much to eat! It was lucky we hadn’t had any lunch before. We will take her lesson and techniques back to the uk so we can hopefully recreate her tasty dishes

      Brilliant class!
      An amazing authentic cooking class! I had a great time with my dad cooking 10 curries, roti and rice. The food was so yummy and really straightforward to prepare - essentially all one pot meals! I know my dad and I will be talking about this one for a long time. Thank you for inviting us into your home and answering my dad's MANY questions.

      Fantastic
      I was looking at doing something different to do for myself and 4 friends from around the world, NZ , 2 from France, Holland and the USA, while our partners were at a conference. We thought this would perfect.. we were unsure what to expect, but we were welcomed into our hosts home,(who both speak very good English) and were offered Tea and homemade biscuits, which were delicious. Once in the kitchen Susantha explains all the homemade spices and vegetables we would be using and then it's all hands-on . We all chose and prepared the vegetables, helped make the 11 dishes and then sat down to eat. It was definitely a feast and very tasty. My highlight was learning to make coconut cream/ milk and Roti. It was a truly wonderful experience, which we all had alot of fun and laughter. I would definitely recommend to all, it was worth the time and money, very friendly hosts and will arrange transport back to your hotel if required

      This was a great class. We got to pick the different vegetables at the market for the curries and learned how to make 10 different dishes. The hosts were very friendly and also explained how to prepare the various spices and other ingredients. This was one of the highlights of our trip.

      Delicious experience
      What an absolute delight! We had Piumi teach us how to make 7 currys, coconut roti and coconut sambal. All adjusted to our spice levels! One of the best meals we had in Sri Lanka. 100% would reccomend! We are now ready to try making them when we get home...

      Authentic cooking class in a family home
      My partner and I absolutely loved our cooking class experience with Piumi and her family. We felt so welcomed into their home and had a very authentic class. We were shown all the different spices and produce, how to prepare and cook 10 different dishes, and how to scrape coconuts! Thank you so much for your hospitality :)

      Absolutely splendid experience!
      I had a wonderful experience with Colombo Cooking Class. The host Piumi took my mom and I on a market tour. Which we absolutely enjoyed. She then invited us to her beautiful home where we began our cooking class. Piumi is such lovely person so kind, patient and an amazing chef. She took the time to explain how to make each dish in detail. We had a wonderful afternoon of cooking where we made 10 dishes. She was extremely hospitable and happy to answer any questions we had along the way. At the end we were able to indulge in the beautiful feast we created. The meal was absolutely delicious. My favorite dish was the brinjal moju! I highly recommend colombo cooking class for anyone interested in learning sinhala style cooking.

      Wonderful authentic Cooking Class
      What a fabulous authentic experience, hosted by a lovely, hospitable and warm couple in their home. They also collected us and dropped us back at our accommodation which was much appreciated. We cooked a large selection of self-chosen curries and a desert, learning about all the spices and being actively involved in the preparation and cooking. And of course, the best part was sitting down around the table to taste the fabulous finished products. It was the most wonderful experience and meal, and we enjoyed our time immensely. Thanks to a lovely couple for sharing their home and cuisine with us, we will remember it for ever.

      Highly recommend!!! So authentic and food heaven
      Best experience ever, and the yummiest food I’ve eaten in Sri Lanka!! We arrived at Piumi and Susa’s home and were welcomed right away. We started with tea, biscuits, dates and fruit. Then Piumi took us through all the traditional vegetables and spices and we got to select what we wanted to cook with. Cooking was so much fun and we learnt so much. The food was honestly the best I’ve had in Sri Lanka, and we’ve been here for a month now. And there is SO much food (12 courses in total). It was food heaven. It was such an authentic experience and I couldn’t recommend it highly enough. Piumi and Susa are so lovely and we had such an enjoyable time in their home. Thank you

    My friend and I joined the dinner time cooking class and were welcomed into the lovely home of Piumi, along with the her husband and father who assisted in making the experience warming and faultless. It was a truly unforgettable evening, learning all about the different local organic vegetables and home-made spices before diving into the preparation of the authentic Sri-Lankan feast (approx 10 dishes + rice + roti). Tasting the foods as they were being prepared was a highlight for us, making us even more excited for the delicious meal that was to come. My friend is also vegan and this didn’t restrict the options at all. The experience was both fun and educational. 10/10, couldn’t recommend it or the family enough!

    Piumi, our gracious host and instructor, made us feel right at home with her warm hospitality. She guided us through the preparation of ten Sri Lankan dishes- both veg and non veg and taught us about the various Sri Lankan spices and vegetables that were unfamiliar to us!

    The hands-on experience in Plum's home was both educational, fun and allowed us to experience Sri Lanka in such a unique way.

    The meal that followed was absolutely amazing- all 10 dishes were unique and dishes I would have never tried if it weren't for the cooking class.

    The Colombo Cooking Class at Piumi's home is a must-do for anyone visiting Sri Lanka. It's not just a cooking class; it's an opportunity to dive deep into the country's culinary traditions and create memories that will last a lifetime. Whether you're a seasoned chef or a novice in the kitchen, Piumi's class will leave you inspired and with a deeper appreciation for the art of Sri Lankan cooking.

    The class was fantastic, Piumi had a wealth of knowledge in the kitchen and made the session engaging. We started by having a traditional Sri Lankan tea and some home made biscuits then took the tour of the kitchen and learnt about the spices in each curry. We chose to learn how to cook vegetarian food but there was options to cook either chicken or fish. We opted to take the class in the evening so we were cooking when it was slightly cooler as the house does not have air conditioning. I really recommend learning how to cook the famous aubergine curry as it was completely different from any other curry I’ve tried and was absolutely delicious! All the food was amazing and I can’t wait to try and make it at home - albeit without the amazing fresh ingredients you get in Sri Lanka. Piumi even had techniques to adapt food to things that were available at home (England) for example buying desiccated coconut and heating it up slightly with some water to make the thin and thick coconut milk. Thank you so much for the experience, we really enjoyed it!

    What a lovely experience! So authentic and heartwarming. We learned to cook Sri Lankan food and learned of Sri Lankan culture in the warmth of a lovely house. We chatted away preparing 10 different curry dishes together. It was an enriching experience and I am so glad we did it. Thank you Susantha and Piumi!
