The Galadari Hotel triumphed at the recently concluded Culinary Art Food Expo 2018 which is organised by Chefs Guild of Lanka with the support of the World Association of Chefs Societies during the EXPO held at the BMICH recently. 

The hotel bagged the prestigious Gold Excellence award, 2 gold, 4 silver and 1 bronze awards spread across different categories. The highlight of the occasion was Aradhana Liyanage who was bestowed with the Gold Excellence Award for the Vodka Cocktail Competition.

Commenting on the hotel’s recent impressive achievement, Galadari Hotel Director F&B Thushantha Kariyawasam said, “Culinary Art Food Expo provides the perfect stage to showcase culinary standards and talent. It is the most comprehensive Food and Beverage Exhibition in Sri Lanka. I am overjoyed with Aradhana’s achievement and equally proud of all our award winners who have brought fame to the hotel.

Speaking out on her recent triumph Aradhana said, “I am grateful for the management of the hotel for giving me this opportunity to participate and showcase my talent. Special thanks go out to the General Manager, Sampath Siriwardena, Thushantha Kariyawasam Director F&B, Harsha Guruge, Manager F&B who was the person who encouraged me to take part, Sumedha Devappriya, Assistant Manager F&B and Sydney Rathnayake, Restaurant’s Manager Training.
