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.
Summers in India are synonymous with spontaneous trips to the nearest hill station— a much-needed respite when the temperature of the plains and coastal regions crosses a sweltering 40º celcius. And those trips have etched long walks, energizing treks and watching the sunset in the Indian consciousness— along with a constant craving for the signature desserts of those regions. Vikram Doctor takes us on a trip this summer, not only telling us about the rich history of Mussoorie, Ooty and Lonavala—and the delicious delights their small bylanes and crowded streets offer; but we also go back in time, to our own childhoods.
