If you have an adventurous palate, join Vikram Doctor every fortnight as he indulges in his appetite for the stories of food. Taste the origins, legends and practical magic of ingredients and recipes that range from the everyday to the extraordinary.
Through ancestral kitchens, gourmet restaurants, exotic vegetable farms, modern agriculturists, heirloom aficionados… One of India’s most respected food writers has been there, eaten that and knows that there is no love more sincere than the love of food.
From Prime Minister Modi’s various Chai pe Charchas to the ubiquitous tea stalls, India’s fixation with chai is well-known. But, our one-dimensional love for this milky, sweet and usually spiced concoction has overshadowed the finer offerings of the plantations in Darjeeling. Why do most of us ignore the fine teas that this region has to offer? Vikram Doctor investigates in this episode of The Real Food Podcast.
