Jurors Evaluation

There is no other better way to understand ones culture other than through a nations’ food. Sri Lanka’s sweetmeats are also the same. This site uses e-commerce to enable local and foreign individuals to taste Sri Lanka’s sweetmeats whilst providing valuable information on preparation and ingredients. Further the use of the website to preserve the knowledge and providing a livelihood for small number of people who have the actual experience and skill to make these traditional sweet meats would preserve these skills for some more period of time before they become extinct.
