Gourmet's Diary Of A Foodie

Southern India: The Spice Of Life

Season 2, Episode 1 of 20

What is the secret of South Indian cooking? Join us as we travel to a region considered "off the beaten path" and uncover South India's spice rack of cultures and cuisines. We'll visit the home of an award-winning author where she savors the enduring recipes and aromatic spices that connect her to family and an ancient past. Next, we'll visit a tiny farming community where local farmers cultivate indigenous ragi grain without the use of pesticides. We'll also travel along the western Malabar coast where a distinguished chef makes a local favorite using the region's abundant seafood and coconuts. Join us as we take a journey across India and experience the spices that define our cuisine. Back in the Gourmet kitchen, we're spicing up dinner with a simple recipe for tandoori chicken.
