    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.
    Thank you so much for your great feedback for us.

    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
    Dear Paul, Thank you so much for your great feedback for us. We hope to se you again. Have a great day. Many thanks, Best regards, Team colombocookingclass.

    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. 😊
    Thank you so much for your great feedback for us. Hope to see you again. Many thanks, Best regards, Team Colombocookingclass

We had the best time cooking with Piumi! We made 10 different dishes (7 veg curries, 1 lentil dahl, 1 fresh tuna curry, and coconut sambal) all from scratch and also fresh coconut roti! 🤤 Piumi was so lovely, see explained everything very well, answered all our questions and ran the class very smoothly. Her family were all so welcoming, especially their dog Paffu 🥰

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!
