Culinary tourism is defined as the pursuit of unique and memorable eating and drinking experiences. By combining travel with these edible experiences, culinary tourism offers both locals and tourists alike an authentic taste of place in our bountiful province.
In Sri Lanka, the cuisine differs significantly from one region to another. Rice is the main staple diet of the Sri Lankan cuisine and is generally served either boiled or steamed accompanied by a variety of curries. Despite the presence of fast-food establishments here, the average Sri Lankan still prepares and eats traditional dishes for everyday consumption at home. Being an island as one might expect, fish and seafood features heavily in the everyday diet along with fruits and vegetables which are itself cultivated on the island.
A typical Sri Lankan meal would consist of a main curry of fish, meat or poultry and several other curries made with vegetables and pulses such as lentils. Condiments such as chutneys and sambols are included too to create the variety. These are generally spicy and are made from various ingredients such as coconut, onions, lime juice and chilies. All the dishes are placed on the table at the same time for consumption.
Another ingredient used in Sri Lankan food is Maldive fish (dried fish) which is used mainly as a flavor enhancer. Other common ingredients that are used include coconut and coconut milk, chilies and onions. We at Seasons Travels would like to offer the best tour for our clients and provide them with the real taste of traditional food and give a glimpse of some of our most favorite dishes such as “Koththu” and “Appa”.

We contacted Sri Lanka Food Tour from New Zealand to book a 7-8 day tour of Sri Lanka. Rather than select from one of the pre-set itineraries on the website, we asked for a bespoke itinerary with a list of places that we wanted to visit. Rather than a full food tour, we wanted mostly a culture, nature and heritage tour of the country with added emphasis on the food experience and learning. During our 8-day tour, we covered the length of Sri Lanka, reaching both Point Pedro and the Dondra Lighthouse. The following report details our experience with Sri Lanka Food Tour & Season’s Travels and our recommendations for future tours.
We took a family trip to Sri Lanka with our two children and we stayed at different places over two weeks. Seasons Travels helped us to arrange our accommodations in the best luxury hotels in Sri Lanka. The Chauffer guide was also very helpful and very knowledgeable.
Thank you for a wonderful trip Aruna, It was truly an amazing experience with safe driving, incredible knowledge by all persons involved.
