About the Chef
Culinary Teacher, Miris Products & Miristrails
Sonali Peiris started Miris products, named after the Sinhalese word for chilli, in 2005 with a traditional mustard recipe handed down through four generations of Sri-Laken women. The hand crafted range has grown to 14 products including award winning chutneys, sauces and dukkahs. Wishing to preserve her Burgher-Sinhalese heritage, Sonali convinced her mother to share recipes acquired in a traditional family where festivities were celebrations of food. Currently they are collaborating on a Sri-Lankan cook book. Sonali’s passion for this tropical island has led her to share her knowledge in presenting cooking classes and, undertaking cultural and culinary tours to its’ different regions. More
