Inside Sri Lanka
£175 per person
Inspired by her two months of travelling through southern Sri Lanka with her young family, Georgie Soskin will guide you through some of her favourite dishes she discovered on her travels. Sri Lankan food offers a vivid array of flavours using rice, coconut, native tropical fruit and Maldivian fish as the building blocks. Much of the Sri Lankan culture revolves around food and cooking for guests meaning Georgie was able to get to know local families who shared their recipes and cookery techniques.
