    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.
    Dear sister, Thank you so much for your great feedback for us. It’s means a lot for us too. Hope to see you again. Many thanks, Best regards, Colombocookingclass

    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 :)
    Thank you so for your great feedback for us. It’s means a lot for us. Hope to see both of you again. Many thanks,

    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.

    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. 😊

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!

An excellent array of dishes! Enjoyed learning about the local cuisine and fruits and vegetables. Expect the course to last around 4 hours and be stuffed at the end!

We loved our 3.5 hour cooking experience with Piumi.

We started off by learning about the various spices used in Lankan cooking, before choosing our ingredients from a selection of vegetables. We chose to make, among others, lentil curry, pumpkin curry, aubergine moju, beetroot curry and chicken curry, alongside string hoppers and rice.

We peeled and chopped our ingredients together with Piumi showing us how best to present each one. Then we added the spices, chilli and seasoning. We also learnt how to make coconut milk from scratch, before starting to cook each dish.

In that time, we also chatted a lot and learned about life in Sri Lanka, the culture and foods and flavours.

While each dish cooked, we prepared the next. Eventually everything was done and a feast of 10 mouthwatering dishes awaited us. We ended our 3.5 hour experience with a beautiful lunch of all the dishes we made.

Thank you for such a fun morning!

Great cooking class with a great instructor! I was able to learn a lot about Sri Lankan food, culture, and even a bit of Sinhala. And the food we cooked was both healthy and delicious. Would definitely recommend this class!

The cooking course was amazing. From the very beginning once we’d booked our cooking class communication via WhatsApp was brilliant.

We were greeted on arrival with Ceylon Tea and treats.
There were three of us in the group.
After learning about the spices we would be using we each helped to wash, chop and prepare the vegetables for the 10 dishes we were to cook.
Our hostess was so well organised and all of the food was freshly purchased just before we arrived.
At the conclusion we sat down to enjoy the dishes we had prepared. Delicious..

The whole experience was friendly and relaxed but very professional at the same time.
If you’re in Colombo with 3 or 4 hours to spare do not hesitate to book into this class.
You won’t regret it!

Perfect way to spend some time learning how to cook authentic Sri Lankan cuisine.

We started out the day with some tea and homemade Sri Lankan treats before entering the kitchen to learn about all the Sri Lankan spices and foods.

All spices were locally sourced and prepared. We learned how to make 9 curries from scratch as well as Coconut Sambal and Coconut Roti.

The food was so fresh and cooked in claypots.

It was a truly wonderful experience and one i would highly recommend while in Colombo. So authentic, welcoming and in the end you get to feast on your work!

Amazing day. Started at the market to buy our food to cook. It was nice to ask about what things were, choose veggies we liked/were interested in etc. Then headed out to start cooking. Piumi was so patient to let us prepare everything in her home kitchen and explained really clearly. We went as a family and our teenagers loved it too. And the end products were amazing!!! A feast! Can't recommend this enough. We wanted to understand Sri Lankan food better before we started travelling and we feel totally equipped, inspired...and full.
