Hosted Cooking Experience with a Local
Discover the art to cooking authentic, homemade food in the home of a Sri Lankan family in a hands-on cookery demonstration hosted by Mrs. Shahira Mahuroof, a renowned force in southern Sri Lankan cuisine. The meal is made richer through the narration of her life’s plentiful experiences. Once complete, join your host and her family to dig into the delicious food you’ve prepared. You can choose from:
1. Muslim-inspired Biryani with an array of condiments (our recommendation)
2. An assortment of hoppers and accompanying curries
3. A simple yet wholesome plate of Rice and Curry featuring seafood
Mrs Shahira Mahuroof is the quintessential Sri Lankan mother, part liberal, a tad conservative, an amazing cook, a skilled storyteller, and a loving wife and mother. A fourth-generation resident of Galle, her upbringing in a prominent family from this seaside city afforded her numerous opportunities to expand her knowledge and experience of the world. She narrates her life’s many trials and tribulations including that of her family’s immense setback post the tsunami that hit in late 2004, all the while fully consumed by the process of preparing a delectable meal with you.
