Sunday Sessions // Hoppers Soho

The wonderfully fragrant parcel that comes to you beautifully wrapped in banana leaf is the loving collaboration of several delicious recipes unique to the Dutch Burgher community in Sri Lanka. In the olden days, Lamprais was a firm Sunday favourite that took about two days of preparation and an entire morning of cooking. It’s truly a labour of love, unwrapped and devoured by family, extended family and friends after returning home from morning church service.

The term Lamprais is derived from the Dutch word ‘lomprijst’ which loosely translates into ‘packet of rice’. The Dutch Burgher Feast at our next Sunday Sessions on 28th April celebrates the unique recipes and traditions of the Burgher community in Sri Lanka alongside some fiery homemade ginger beer and Dutch Genever cocktails.

 
The menu includes a selection of short eats; Duck Patties, Black Pork Puff, Tuna & Egg Rolls, Lamprais with Mixed Meat Curry, Cutlets, Seeni Sambol, Brinjal Moju and more. And to finish it all off, Love Cake & Rose Cream

Also on offer will be fiery homemade ginger beer and Dutch Genever cocktails.

A frequent visitor to the island, for research and pleasure, Karam Sethi (Founder of Hoppers/JKS Restaurants) shares his tips with Mr. Porter on how to make the most of a Sri Lankan adventure.

“Sri Lanka has so much more to offer than beautiful beaches, so aim to experience a range of culture, wildlife, adventure and food across the island. If you’re adventurous enough, you can quickly cover a lot of ground. Take in the Golden Valley of Ceylon Tea or visit the ancient Buddhist temples and Sinhalese ruins within the Cultural Triangle.

On my next trip, I’ll be jumping on the Yal Devi Queen of Jaffna train from Colombo, which snakes through heritage cities and once-forbidden lands en route to Jaffna.”

Coming up on the 16th of December, it’s our final Sunday Sessions of the year and we’re inviting everyone to a festive feast with Aunty Miriam.

Not only is she one of the best cooks I know but also one of the warmest and most loving hosts I’ve ever met. So, this year we are very lucky that she’s going to be bringing a Syrian inspired feast to Hoppers here in London!”

-Karan Gokani

The menu features a festive spin on Sri Lankan classics including Crab & Calamari Moilee with String Hoppers, Partridge Fry, Haunch of Venison Roast, Wild Boar Kari, and more. Finished off nicely with a generous serving of Arrack Plum Cake with Chestnut Kithul Cream! See you there! #hopperssundaysessions
