We are pleased to present delicacies from the Punjab region of Northwestern India. Indian food, like Indian culture, is both diverse and distinctive. Every corner of India offers a vast array of culinary delights and has been influenced by many different cultures, including those of the Moguls, Portuguese, Persians and British.
The Punjabs have the reputation of being gourmets and the best cooks in the country. The Punjab is particularly famous for its curries, blends of up to 20 herbs and spices, as well as tandoori clay oven cooking.
Indian food is comprised of six basic tastes: sweet, sour, salty, spicy, bitter and astringent. A well-balanced Indian meal contains many of these flavors. This principle explains the use of numerous spice combinations and depth of flavor.
I hope you enjoy this tour of flavors and colors,
