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.
Few items of food inspire the sort of strong reactions that the smell of drying Bombay duck does. This dried fish, a staple for some, is often rejected from menus because of its reputation as a poor-man’s fish. Does the dried Bombay duck really deserve the reputation that literally makes people turn their noses up (and away)? Vikram Doctor speaks to writer/editor and chronicler of Mumbai history, Naresh Fernandes and the legendary chef Ananda Solomon to investigate.
Music – Josh Woodward and Mina Kava
