Learn to make traditional Sri Lankan dishes bursting with flavour in Yogi’s online cookery class

Join Yogi in preparing wonderful Sri Lankan dishes for his online cookery class! He is a wonderful teacher, chef, and story-teller. He will share the secrets to traditional Sri Lankan dishes. This is your chance to learn a brand new cuisine, support an amazing cause, and eat great food.

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 Srilankan recipes with you.”
