Galle, Southern Province

This experience right is hands on and involves the greatest of loves — food! We’ll start early and set foot into Galle’s countryside, where local life, the traditional preparation methods and village fare take center stage.

 

Authentic Sri Lankan fare is quite different to the cuisines of, say India, Bangladesh and Pakistan. It is in search of these flavours that we set off across the Galle countryside. We arrive at a mud-hut kitchen with a thatched roof. The host, warm and friendly, describes the preparation methods and the key ingredients that distinguish local cuisine. Curry, though widely enjoyed, is somewhat misunderstood by many. It isn’t a single dish. It is vibrant and vast, and it is a cooking method like stewing or searing, for example. You’ll be shown how coconut milk, an important part of most tropical curries here, is got by soaking freshly grated coconut flesh in warm water. Plus, you’ll get to try your hand at preparing some of these dishes, while employing methods like tempering, frying, boiling, grating and even caramelizing! Food always tastes so much better when there’s labour involved. Go fully local and use your hands to savour this authentic village feast.

 

You’ll get to your hotel and have some time to put your feet up in the evening. Curries and other local fare will be a first hand experience for you from here on!
