Starting out at around 9.30am, you will begin by heading to the local market in Galle town.

Next, you will travel on to a local village nearby where you will cook in a wattle and daub hut. Temper, fry, boil and caramelize some local delicacies and see how coconut milk is made. Finally, enjoy all your hard work and sit down to eat your delicious meal.
