Ella Spice Garden, Ella

(4.3/5 based on 280 reviews on the web)
Take a cooking class or simply savor Sri Lanka's authentic cuisine at Ella Spice Garden, a private household set in a highland village amid world-famous tea plantations. With a hands-on approach, an informative English-speaking teacher will take you on a tour of all the Sri Lankan spices cultivated in this private garden. Roam through peppers, cloves, turmeric, and chili plants, take a sample, and then roll up your sleeves to hit the kitchen. Classes, followed by a meal, are suitable for all levels of hobby chefs. Alternatively, you can just stop by for a tasty meal, mostly featuring curry-style traditional dishes. Make sure you call in advance. Arrange your visit to Ella Spice Garden and discover more family-friendly attractions in Ella using our Ella trip itinerary maker.
