A Journey Through Food
A Passage to India
If there is one thing I have learned in my three decades on this planet, it is this: As human beings we should take the time each and every day to understand one another’s stories and cultures. And to me, the way I do that is through food and engaging in conversation over a meal. Two years ago, I decided to return to my roots and take a culinary sabbatical to the shores of India; exploring the heart and soul of South Indian cuisine and its influence on the South African palate.
What follows on these pages are my escapades through this land I can only describe as “an explosion for the senses”. Come roam the streets of Bangalore with me, take a romantic train ride to Madurai, dine at temples of old, explore Mumbai’s flavours, and so much more, all in the name of rediscovering the essence of Indian food.
