Sri Lanka’s participation at Expo 2020 Dubai is geared to ensure the strengthening of the country’s trade, tourism, and investments.

In this regard, the Sri Lanka Export Development Board (EDB) plays a critical role with private and State organisations to landmark Sri Lanka’s presence at this global event.

The Culinary Experience Pod is a significant event planned to take place within the entire period of Expo 2020 Dubai, featuring an array of authentic cuisine from all over the world and welcoming an equally diverse audience. The establishment of the ‘Culinary Experience Pod’ will consist of an assortment of stations such as featured live cooking stations for guest chefs from participant countries.

The world-renowned chef Peter Kuruvita will join as the guest chef representing Sri Lanka to deliver the contemporary version of Sri Lankan Cuisine with the richness of Sri Lankan spices.

Kuruvita met Minister of Development Strategies and International Trade, Malik Samarawickrama recently to discuss the Culinary Experience Pod. Deputy Minister of Development Strategies and International Trade, Nalin Bandara, Export Development Board Chairperson, Indira Malwatte, officials of the Export Development Board, and private sector representatives of the Expo Steering Committee were also present.

Kuruwita said that it is important to take the task very seriously at a time when Sri Lankan cuisine is identified as “the number one trending cuisine in the world” Highlighting the flavours of Lankan spices by setting up the ‘Sri Lanka Spice’ brand with the Lion logo was also discussed. It is to be developed with the ‘Born in Sri Lanka’ concept which Kuruvita will work on.
