Culinary Tours in India
India is one of the largest countries in the world, diverse and vibrant, multilingual and multiethnic. Any traveler can call to mind iconic images of Indian culture and cuisine; the Taj Mahal, the Red Fort of Agra, Humayun's Tomb remind one of the wealth and commerce of India's long history, while the delectable curries, savory chaat (appetizers), and tandoor-baked delicacies evoke the diverse cuisine of this fascinating land. Our cooking holidays in India offer a hearty portion of both Indian culture and cuisine.
The breathtaking cultural, religious, and linguistic diversity of India are evident in its cities and bustling metropolises where one can see the rich history of Indian art and architecture. Its rural areas are like snapshots of a bygone era, where traces of its ancient caste system and its status as a colony are still discernible, and where cultural and religious traditions have remained unchanged for generations.
Food is serious business in India, and Indian cuisine is one of the most flavorful in the world. Because it is one of the largest countries, its cuisine is quite varied, but one common theme is the layering of different spices that create a rich flavor profile. Like much of Asian cuisine, it combines different combinations of sweet, sour, savory, and spicy in its many vegetarian and meat-based dishes, combinations that you will experience and learn to replicate on your cooking tour in India.
From the forts and temples, to the tent camps in the desert, from majestic opulence, to profound devotion; India is a land that will win you over.
