Spicy Donut: Taking cooks back to the island

The melody of spices, natural island born ingredients coupled with the influence from historic colonial powers is what results in Sri Lanka’s native cuisine offering an explosion of delicious mouth watering flavours on well travelled palettes.

The modern era influenced by convenience and hampered by the absence of exact recipes is what first inspired 3 friends to bridge the gap that, if left unaddressed, could lead to a lost heritage of food in decades to come. It was this appreciation for Sri Lankan food, pride of its origin and the inability to recreate it that kick started the idea of Spicy Donut Cooking Lessons.

Spicy Donut set out in 2011 to understand whether a market existed for budding cooks to enjoy cooking their own homemade Mutton Rolls, Kothu Roti, Hoppers and Vadais eternally. A successful pilot and demand from a variety of food lovers from all walks of life led to the group launching a series of exciting  cooking lessons in 2012 starting February 12th.

Within a duration of 3 hours, students learn the tricks of the trade and revel in pride following the culinary delights they produce whilst under instruction by our delightfully charismatic Chef. The lesson is all fun and games and gets students engaged in teams and the lesson ends with a rather huge feast at the end!

If you are excited to learn how to cook great food, have friends who love Sri Lankan food or are just up for the social aspect of cooking with friends contact us to take part in our lessons –

Lessons are held in Park Royal on Sundays and both males and females are most welcome.
