It was the best thing we did during our whole trip in Sri Lanka! We learnt so much about Sri Lankan cooking and had such a fun time with Sampath. Couldn’t recommend it more! The food was absolutely delicious, we loved visiting the local markets and we can’t wait to try out all the recipes from the book when we’re home. Thank you Sampath!


Chef Sampath picked us up from our hotel..and bought a few ingredients with us.This was followed by a tuk tuk ride to his old village style kitchen...! Then he served us an amazing refreshing drink, gave us fresh aprons, and his magic recipe book! then what followed was divine for all oursenses- the smell of pandan leaves, the sparkling sound of onion garlic simmering in the oil, beauty of the way he cut the beans and finally the amazing taste of all the 4 dishes we made together. +ves- everything...he lets u make the food, he gives u insight of cooking history and he also gives u wonderful cooking tips -ves- none as such...apart from the fact that the whole cooking thing takes about 1.5 hrs so make sure u have the energy to be on ur toes... but Chef sampath was sweet enough to let us rest and watch..when we said we were tired. Chef Sampath is restoring his organic garden...once up and running it will be an icing on the cake!


We had a great experience with chef Sampath in Galle. It was first time in my life visit the Organic Garden, picked my own vegetables and cooked fresh vegetables in same time. Coconut grating and coconut tree climbing were more fun and memorable!!! Food selection and taste was fantastic. Place is very peaceful and garden consist with coconut, Mango, Orange, Banana and various trees. Recommend for travelers who seek different experiences and food lovers. Thank you Sampath & Team

Hier wird einem ein ganz besonderer Nachmittag garantiert. Nach einer kurzen Erkundungstour durch den eigenen Gemüse- Gewürz- Kräutergarten ging es an die Auswahl und Zubereitung von drei unterschiedlichen Currys. Zu jedem Curry haben wir weitere Informationen zur traditionellen Zubereitung erhalten und durften uns die Zutaten "erarbeiten". Die Kinder hatten besonders viel Spass beim Kokosnuss "schälen" und die Erwachsenen konnten ihr können beim traditionellen "raspeln" beweisen. Im Anschluss haben wir das zubereitete Curry direkt aus Bananenblättern gegessen. Es war ein unvergessliches Erlebnis. Vielen Dank nochmal an Sampath und Chanaka.
