Modern Sri Lankan Tasting
27 March, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Contemporary Ceylon is launching its first pop up in Melbourne!
The concept began as a unique dining experience hosted by Andrew Speldewinde where he endeavoured to bring his experimental and modern cooking style to Sri Lankan food. From its humble beginnings as a home cook venture, Contemporary Ceylon went on to organise large scale pop up events at stunning venues such as the Dutch Burgher Union in Colombo. All the tasting menus examined traditional Sri lankan dishes or ingredients and elevated them with modern twists or cooking techniques. Andrew draws heavily from his roots, incorporating old family recipes into his menus.
This pop up dining experience will feature interpretations of traditional dishes or inspiration taken from family recipes. Each of the five courses will be paired with a range of spectacular wines curated by Vintage House. Expect bold new flavours culminating in a fresh take on Sri Lankan cuisine.
