About the tutor

Daniel Siriman was born in Sri Lanka and learned to cook from his father. His love for cooking and food was largely influenced by his father and grandfather. Immigrating to Australia in 1992, Dan qualified as a chef and worked in many restaurants, catering establishments and in a renowned French patisserie in Melbourne. In early 2017 Daniel went back to Sri Lanka in search for his roots where he became fascinated by the alluring beaches, rolling hills and exotic food culture. At the end of his visit the idea for Monsoon Harvest, his food tour company, was formed.
