To wine, dine and make people smile has always brought me
immense joy.

A self-taught home cook passionate about scrumptious flavors, wafting aromas and creating mouthwatering dishes from beautifully fresh produce, I have always loved the concept of food bringing people together.

Be it a spread of fine taps or a hearty feast, a shared meal amongst friends and family, to me, offers the perfect setting for flowing conversation, sincere connections and the unraveling of intriguing minds.

The cooking class with Brindley was a very exciting and fun experience - and the food turned out to be really delicious! I even learned some more tricks and tips that I can implement in my daily cooking - so can definitely recommend it to everyone who likes to get to know Srilankan food a bit better :)
