With a hands-on approach, an informative English-speaking teacher will take you on a tour of all the Sri Lankan spices cultivated in this private garden. Roam through peppers, cloves, turmeric, and chili plants, take a sample, and then roll up your sleeves to hit the kitchen. Classes, followed by a meal, are suitable for all levels of hobby chefs.

  • This was one of our favourite experiences we had in Sri Lanka. four of us did the cooking class and our instructor was fantastic, he had a great sense of humour and there was never a dull moment. We were so impressed with the food we made and had so much fun doing it. You also get the recipes to take home. Loved it
  • 100 lkr A 20-minute visit. Really small. Nice because the guy explains a few things. Could be improved with a making it bigger, more organized and selling juice on site.
