Learn an authentic Sri Lankan dish with Nafa, a Migrateful chef!
Who is Nafa?
Nafa is a Migrateful Chef from a city called Kurunegala in the middle of Sri Lanka. Her dad owned a restaurant in the city, so from the age of 10 she helped her family cook for the customers. Everything she used to make was homemade and they never bought curry powder from the shops. This is how she learnt how she cooks today!
‘I love cooking Sri Lankan food. Sri Lankan cuisine has been shaped by many historical and cultural factors. Contact with foreign traders who brought new food items, cultural influences from neighbouring countries as well as the local traditions of the country’s ethnic groups have all helped shape Sri Lankan cuisine. Influences from Indian (particularly South Indian), Indonesian and Dutch cuisines are particularly evident.’
What is Migrateful?
Migrateful runs cookery classes led by refugees, asylum seekers and migrants struggling to integrate and access employment. The cookery classes provide ideal conditions not just for learning English and building confidence, but also for promoting contact and cultural exchange with the wider community.

What will we be doing?
Nafa will be guiding us step by step, on Zoom, through her recipe for Soya Devil (which is made with soy but can also be made with chicken) and Kahabath (Basmati rice cooked in coconut milk and turmeric). A mouth watering combination!
