The Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle Resort in Sri Lanka is offering an interactive culinary experience by letting its guests pick fresh produce from the hotel’s own garden for a four-course meal. Items include rice, vegetables, herbs and spices. Called “Harvest Table by Anantara,” the program was enacted by Executive Chef Chaminda Pathirana and supported by caretakers of the resort’s farmland. Before the meal, travelers learn about how the resort tends its fruits and vegetables as well as the health benefits of each ingredient. Ranji, a local fisherman, brings in the day’s catch for a main course.

The program is:

11:30 am: Meet the chef and take a guided stroll. Guests also sip on a picked coconut drink.
