The Sri Lankan Pop-Up DC

By The Sri Lankan Supper Club (other events)

ABOUT ABOUT

Heat up these cold months with a spicy but elegant meal straight from the tropics. Sri Lankan food, otherwise known as "rice & curry" is one of the last undiscovered cuisines of Asia, and difficult to find in the U.S. because of the dearth of Sri Lankan restaurants here. But Chef Skiz Fernando, a Sri Lankan native, and author of the New York Times notable cookbook, Rice & Curry: Sri Lankan Home Cooking (Hippocrene Books), aims to change that. He has introduced foodies all over the country to this incredible cuisine via his frequent supper clubs and pop-ups. Join him as he brings his bold flavors to DC.
