When it comes to ‘foodie destinations’, Sri Lanka flies relatively under the radar – yet it has a fantastic culinary scene. We’ve designed this trip to sample its spices and rich flavours – most of which you’d never taste at home – and trace the island’s multicultural history through its delicious dishes...You’ll also have the chance to learn from great chefs, see the country’s ancient sites and stay in high-end hotels along the way.
While this suggested itinerary has been carefully created to include Sri Lanka’s gastronomic highlights, we can tailor it exactly to your tastes (no pun intended – sorry, we couldn’t resist).
- Enjoying a private cooking demo in the hill country, including a special “teaology” experience
- Eating a traditional Kamatha farmhouse dinner – up to 15 courses!
- Sipping spice-infused cocktails at a buzzy beach-side restaurant within a coconut grove (recently celebrated as one of the best bars in Asia)
On this bespoke holiday, you’ll try a whole spectrum of Sri Lankan delicacies - from irresistible kottu and traditional Sinhala rice and curry to more novel specialities like string hoppers and arrack (to name a few). Through the narrative of its food, you’ll learn all about the country’s multicultural influences – so much so that by the end of your trip, we bet you’ll be able to tell the subtle differences between Tamil and Singhalese cooking. And, much more besides...
