Welcome to Sri Lanka’s
first interactive culinary experience

At Culinary Ceylon, we believe that when you visit another country, the best way to connect to its history, culture and people is through its local cuisine.

#srilankancuisine is currently trending worldwide! It combines flavors from around the globe and yet, has a taste that is all its own. With influences from Malaysia, Indonesia, Southern India, North Africa, Portugal, England and the Netherlands, it’s a mixed bag of flavors and an explosion of colors, which remains a constant reminder of our colonial past. But you would be mistaken for thinking it cannot be defined as its own. It’s heavily influenced by its geography, sitting in the Indian Ocean between east and west, meaning we are big on seafood. And the tropical climes also account for our plethora of coconuts. Curries and rice are staples, and are often eaten with roti style bread, while chilies, curry leaves, onions, cinnamon and garlic also feature heavily. “peel the lairs “ and gain an in-depth understanding of Sri Lankan cuisine, explore the list of experiences offered at Culinary Ceylon.
