Sri Lanka’s exotic cuisine blossoms at a culinary crossroads, where passing settlers and traders have each added a layer to the richly spiced mélange. Flavours of the Dutch, Portuguese, English, Arab, Malay and Indian influences come together to create dishes quite unlike anywhere else on earth.
Spice Spoons invites you to delve into the secrets and take a piece of this indigenous expertise home with you to entertain family and friends with traditional island recipes.
After a breakfast at Olu, your guide leads you through a nearby traditional market for an authentic taste of local life. With ingredients in hand, return to enjoy a step-by-step cooking class in the resort’s luxurious surrounds.
An arrack cocktail punctuates the experience with a tropical kick. After relishing your own creation, be presented with a certificate marking your new skills, and take away a Spice Spoons bag with an apron, chopping board, and box of Sri Lankan recipes to recreate the memories at home.
