Koluu (Hemalallindre Ranawake)

A Spicy Personality

Sri Lanka's first celebrity chef, Koluu needs no introduction. His delicious food has delighted restaurant goers in Colombo for years- his famous Pork Kalu Pol Curry has a following of its own! He's shared some of his cooking secrets on television and his wonderfully user-friendly cookery book has been flying off the shelf since it was published in 2011.

Koluu's deliciously naughty personality is as famous as his mouthwatering cuisine. It is in evidence in his sharply amusing weekly newspaper column about Colombo's high society, and of course, in his wonderfully playful drag act that has thrilled audiences and raised a great deal of funds for charity over the years.

Having lived and worked all over the world, he is master of a wide range of cuisines, but our own Sri Lankan cookery has always had the first place in his heart. Ever enthusiastic about introducing the delicious Sri Lankan flavour to the world, he has travelled widely promoting Sri Lankan cuisine. In 2012, he was the first Sri Lankan to be invited to the Culinary Institute of America for a special event whose theme was Spices. Koluu's Sri Lankan curries wowed the audience and gave many people their first taste of Sri Lanka.

In the Spice it Up!! range Koluu has captured perfectly the authentic taste of Sri Lanka's favourite dishes – and made them quick and easy for you to enjoy.
