Is it like Indian food?” That’s the first question most people ask about Sri Lankan cuisine—if they know where the tiny island nation is, which is rare. (It’s just southeast of the southern tip of India).

My answer? “Sort of.”

There are some common elements, to be sure. But the “rice and curry” spreads that make up most Sri Lankan meals are pretty different from the northern saag paneer or Goan vindaloo at your local lunch buffet. Sri Lankan food offers a vivid array of flavor combinations: strong coastal flavors, Portuguese influence of sweet caramelized onion relishes, bitter melon, spicy scraped coconut. This class ia suitable for vegans and pescatarians. We will make Brinjal pahi (sweet and sour eggplant), Fish curry, cashew curry, Snake beans and pumpkin curry. Coconut sambal and pineapple chutneys. We will eat all of those in a special hopper.
