Gayani Ariyaratne

Vegan Chef

I was born and brought up in Sri Lanka. Started to learn how to cook from Grandma when I was 6 years old. Studied Multidisciplinary Design major. Now I’m a chef / floral designer / artist. I am also a British flower grower and a member of Flowers From The Farm.

I have created my artisan Gold Dust curry powder inspired by my Grandma’s curry paste. It is very rewarding working as a personal chef and cookery demonstrator. I travel mostly to provide personal chef service and supper clubs around the country and abroad.
