The much anticipated culinary event creating a buzz in Sri Lanka currently, featuring Kumar Pereira of MasterChef fame from Australia is scheduled to be held at the Park Street Mews, which is the official host for the Colombo leg of the event.

A cocktail and a special menu with Kumar Pereira presenting an item from the menu will be the highlight of the evening. Born in Sri Lanka, Kumar was among the 12 finalists in season three of MasterChef Australia, and was also one of the show’s oldest contestants at 62, becoming a surprise hit of the show.

His culinary journey starts from 15 January and continues until 24 January, and will take up to 12 lucky people on personal cooking demonstrations across beautiful boutique hotels throughout the 10 day itinerary at exclusive properties.

The Park Street Mews restaurant is part of a complex which has become one of Colombo’s premier event destinations, and has hosted the Colombo Art Biennale, Colombo Design Week, and literary nights featuring well known authors, as well as a variety of international and local musical acts.
