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 weddings to festivals such as Diwali, Christmas and Pongal, the last few months of the year are a time for grand celebrations in India. And, food is an important component. What does the festive season say about how we cherish and celebrate food? We may be endeared to the idea of banquets serving multiple cuisines in resplendent avatars, but is it really a feast unless you have an Indian showstopper? From traditional festive delights and recipes unique to wedding banquets, to how food often becomes the entertainment, Vikram Doctor brings you the story of how India feasts.
