Tamil Cooking with Nigethan from CERES Tamil Feasts




Proud Tamil cook Nigethan is keen to share the food heritage of his Sri Lankan homeland. Discover traditional curries, chutneys, vadai, dahl, korma’s and masala’s. It is a rare chance to experience the vibrant colour, spice and flavour of authentic Tamil cuisine that’s rarely found outside Sri Lanka. Receipes are gluten free.

Join us for a cooking workshop with a difference. Immerse yourself in a new culture,  explore new tastes and learn about the history and traditions of food from around the world. Each evening workshop is hands- on and you will cook a variety of different dishes.

At the end of the workshop you will sit down together for a shared feast of your own making. You will leave the workshop with new inspiration and skills and a few recipes to try out at home.

CERES - Centre for Education and Research in Environmental Strategies, is an award winning, not-for-profit, sustainability centre located on 4.5 hectares on the Merri Creek in East Brunswick, Melbourne.

It is also a thriving community, an urban farm, Australia’s largest deliverer of environmental education, an event and conference venue and a place rich with social and cultural diversity. CERES is recognised as an international leader in community and environmental practice.

Built on a decommissioned rubbish tip that was once a bluestone quarry, today CERES is a vibrant eco-oasis. 350,000 people visit CERES each year. Many more engage with us through our Sustainable Schools program which takes sustainable education into schools across the state.

CERES’ green technology displays, buildings, education and training programs and social enterprises (CERES’ Organic Market, Café, Permaculture Nursery and Fair Food organics delivery) demonstrate food security, sustainable agriculture, energy efficiencies, renewables and water conservation in action.

CERES is a model for a future with sustainability, innovation and connectedness at its heart.

Come, be welcome, you never know what you will find on our rambling paths.
