India is one of the largest countries in the world, diverse and vibrant, multilingual and multi ethnic. Any traveller can call to mind iconic images of Indian culture and cuisine; while the delectable curries, savoury chaat (appetizers), and tandoor-baked delicacies evoke the diverse cuisine of this fascinating land.
Indian cuisine is one of the most flavourful in the world because it is one of the largest countries, its cuisine is quite varied, but one common theme is the layering of different spices that create a rich flavour profile. Like much of Asian cuisine, it combines different combinations of sweet, sour, savoury, and spicy in its many vegetarian and meat-based dishes, combinations that you will experience and learn to replicate on your cooking tour in India.
