They say an idea comes to you at the most unexpected time and in the craziest of places! For me it was travelling home on the train in Melbourne after work. The idea ‘ Celebrate my heritage through the food I grew up with’. It all started with a traditional Sri Lankan Mustard recipe that has been handed down 3 generations in our family.
We arrived in Melbourne – Australia in the late 1960’s from Sri Lanka, my parents in their twenties with four children ranging in age from eight months to six years old. A ready made family with only hope for a better future in a land of promise and unending possibilities. Australia became our foster mother, giving us opportunities that we are forever grateful for, whilst Sri Lanka our birth mother a yearning and love that never leaves you. My parents who are Sinhalese and Burgher retained many of their culture and traditions, most of them based around family and food.
I am passionate about my heritage as a Sri Lankan and wanted to share that passion with my family, friends and the world. Using recipes from my grandmother, mother and aunties, I have created a range of award winning artisan products like no other. The passion has not stopped and neither has my journey. As I talked to customers about my products and shared recipes on how to use them, they would ask me about cooking classes. I started cooking demos in cafes and homes, creating recipes around the Miris Products range. Then they asked me to teach them about Sri Lankan food using tradtional recipes, so I started those cooking classes all around Melbourne. I was invited to the South Melbourne Cooking School. From there I organised high end Culinary Tours to Sri Lanka, from 2014 to now.
My journey still continues and all this started from an idea on a train …. hope you can jump on that train with me and let me take you on a ride of flavour, culture and my heritage
We sincerely hope that you enjoy our product as much as we enjoy making it.
