Nalinka lives in a beautiful family home in the heart of a lush, residential neighborhood in Colombo 5. Her creativity and love for design is visible in her beautifully decorated home. Her contemporary home is tastefully decorated with handpicked art, photographs and unique pieces of furniture. Nalinka also enjoys painting, yoga and travel.

Your healthy, vegetarian Sri Lankan cooking experience starts with a glass of refreshing fruit juice. A traditional Sri Lankan meal is Ayurvedic, healthy, and cooked with minimal or no oil. Nalinka turned vegetarian since she started to practice yoga and since most Sri Lankan dishes are made using local vegetables and fruits, it is very vegan friendly as well. On this experience you will learn about Sri Lankan cuisine and culture as you cook traditional Sri Lankan food with Nalinka in her kitchen. 

Please choose between either the string hopper or rice and curry meal when making your reservation request.
