Learn how to cook tasty authentic Sri Lankan food in this fun cooking class in Sydney!

On arrival to class, you will be offered a refreshment and then given a short brief on safety and orientation. The chef will then demonstrate the courses to be cooked and answers any questions you may have. You will then break into small groups to prepare the meal under the guidance of the chef.

On the menu: 

  • Chicken curry
  • Prawn curry
  • Pumpkin curry (a Sri Lankan favourite)
  • Snake bean mallung (mallungs are quick-fried vegetable accompaniments that are lightly spiced)

  • Saffron rice
  • Coconut roti

When all is ready, we sit down and eat at a large single set table. This is an activity where everyone gets involved under the chef’s guidance to produce a sensational feast! So if you're looking for unique things to do in Sydney,  cooking your own homemade Sri Lankan feast is the perfect option.

Gabriel was a great teacher and we learnt a lot. I have been to Sri Lanka 4 x at the cuisine we cooked was the same as the real thing! Just a little less chilli!

It was good to learn about a variety of spices and discover the easiest and tastiest ways to cook aromatic rice. The instructor was a very kind and nice person.

Alex Lacey May 2023

Learned lots about use of frypans and how to stop food sticking at all! Well worth it

Jeremy Trahair Mar 2023

Our host and chef was a very nice guy and very professional in the kitchen.
Unfortunately the dishes that we cooked did not take us back to Sri Lanka. Food in Sri Lanka is spicy and fiery but our dishes were on the bland side. The boiled chicken was plain and disappointing. Also disappointing was the lack of sambals and freshly grated coconut which you will always find on a Sri Lankan table.
We would prefer our teacher to be an ethnic representative of the food being prepared. Nevertheless we still enjoyed our day.

What a fun few hours learning the arts of Sri Lankan cooking.
The teacher was relaxed but attentive, patiently supporting us through the various recipes.
The facilities were good and we really enjoyed eating the meal together and chatting afterwards.
I would highly recommend this class.

We just had a great hen's party with Gabriele helping us cook our own Sri Lankan feast! Gabriele went to every effort to make sure we all had a good time and weren't rushed. Gabriele has a lovely patient nature that had everyone at ease from the get go and nurtured us through the dishes, especially if we felt like just having a chat while he cooked a bit! Drinks were on ice, snacks were servedwhat a great way to incorporate an activity and a meal for such an occasion. Thanks again Gabriele and co.
