Sri Lankan Cookery Class with Yogi | Station Style | LONDON

May 12, 2022 @ 6:15 pm - 9:15 pm

Chef Yogi will teach hard-to-find Sri Lankan recipes followed by a sit-down meal. A delicious learning experience like no other!

It’s our joy to welcome you to our Station Style Cookery Class, a one-of-a-kind cookery class experience where refugee and migrant chefs teach personal recipes from their home countries using traditional techniques. It’s a unique opportunity to learn and taste the world’s best, and to feed the foodie in you who loves nothing more than trying new, mouth-watering flavours and incredible-looking dishes!

Your class will be taught by our wonderful Chef Yogi from Sri Lanka at Hackney School of Food (Oswald St, Lower Clapton, London E5 0BT).

At our Station Style Cookery Classes, each participant will be paired up and have their own cooking station where they will prepare all the dishes for the night. Each station will be provided with all the ingredients and equipment needed to make them. Throughout the evening, Chef Yogi will share stories about their cuisine and culture, and lead the group step-by-step through their recipes. He will pause in between to answer questions, talk through special tips and techniques, and provide feedback on the dishes. Yes, you learn in the most authentic way! You will also be emailed the recipes after the class.

Yogi’s cook-along dishes will be:

  • Pepper Mushroom Curry
  • Coconut Roti
  • Thenkai Sambal

A message from our Chef Yogi:

Message from Yogi: ‘’Hi, I’m Yogi from Sri Lanka. I arrived in the UK 12 years ago, and I didn’t even know how to make a cup of tea! I depended on my friends to cook for me. Later, I decided to learn how to cook, so alone in the UK I had to learn from scratch. My teacher was my mother, who instructed me over the phone. Gradually, I learnt to recreate the tastes and smells of my home’s cuisine. I used to cook for people at the charity and they told me about Migrateful. Now I cook for neighbours and friends, and they love my tasty, spicy curries. I particularly like hot chillies, so when you cook along with me you might need to reduce the number of chillies! I am very excited to share my Sri Lankan recipes with you.”
