In early March guests headed to Knightor for our Sri Lankan inspired Feast and a taste of winter sun in chilly Cornwall. Head Chef Joe's menu was inspired by the tiny island just off the southern tip of India. Sri Lankan cuisine is sometimes similar to Indian food however has a distinctive spin with a vivid array of flavour combinations, spicy curries, sweet onion relishes and palm sugar sweetened desserts.
