  • 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
