You haven’t tasted Sri Lanka, locals say, until you fully experience an authentic “Kamatha” meal – rice paddy dining pavilion serving revered royal recipes from a Kingdom long forgotten.
The Kamatha, a new dining experience by Ulagalla’s award winning team, set in the centre of a working paddy (rice) field brings together travellers and locals who have an appetite for exploring flavours.
On this epicurean adventure you will sample traditional dishes, explore old world ingredients and even work with home cooks and their favourite recipes. You will learn ; how the traditions of a Kingdom are reflected in the myriad of fragrant spices and seasonings, about the utensils still in use after 2000 years and of the preparation of food in hand made clay pots and open wood fires at a whole different taste.
These thoughtful multi-course meals incorporate vegetables harvested at Ulaglla’s organic farm, lake fish and free-range meats sourced locally and traditional breads and old-world rice, the signature crop of Ulagalla’s paddy fields.
