I’m a Sri Lankan housewife of 28 years. Over the years of taking care and cooking for my family, I developed a love and passion for cooking. This soon turned into a hobby which I took a great interest in as the years went by. I honed my skills in cooking under several cuisines. But Sri Lankan cuisine will always hold a very special place in my heart, as it is what I excel at and provide for my family on a day to day basis. Over the past 30 years, I have gained a thorough understanding of the Sri Lankan palette and flavors that are unique to the Sri Lankan culture and our origins. Through this cooking experience I would love to share my experience and knowledge on Sri Lankan cuisine with all of you.
