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.
A little over a decade ago, Nashik was known for one thing – the Kumbh Mela, which arrived at this Maharashtrian city once every 12 years, and for the sheer number of people who gathered during this Hindu pilgrimage festival. Today however, Nashik is also known for being at the heart of India’s wine industry. The story of how this came about to be is a tale of vision, persistence, and trial and error. Here’s Vikram Doctor on how Nashik became India’s wine capital.
