Jaffna Flavours with a Western Twist!

Sep 12 2018. views 496

My Sister’s Kitchen by Thushara Innasithamby is renowned for top quality Jaffna Cuisine, and Hisham Cader’s The Sandwich Factory is one of the first dedicated American Diners in the country, serving up American favourites. The two cuisines will collide and fuse to provide foodies in Colombo a guaranteed treat for one day only on Sunday, the 16th of September at The Sandwich Factory.



Both Innasithamby and Cader will integrate their culinary skills to combine the best of both worlds and present to you their interpretation of traditional Jaffna cuisine inspired by precious family recipes with an exciting western twist. 

“We needed to give a facelift to Jaffna food” Thushara Innasithamby explained about her decision to collaborate with The Sandwich Factory. “So we thought the best way was to twist the authentic flavours with western presentation. Also the strong flavours of our authentic cooking methods need to reach more people”. Innasithamby also added that due to popular demand, they will also serve the Jaffna Crab Curry made with sea crabs. The idea to collaborate was conceptualized by My Sister's Kitchen, and “knowing Carder on a personal level, we thought of bringing both our world's together”.
