Come with me to India


An Invitation from Mike Pardus


As some of you might know, Bob and I frequently organize interesting culinary adventures for ourselves and friends. Most of the time it's just him and me and a few other food geeks getting together for a weekend of debauchery and conversation. However, recently I've been invited by another geek to go on a REAL adventure - a culinary tour of Kerala, India - mother load of the spice trade. Unfortunately, Robert can't get away from the farm, but the rest of us will be touring the southwestern coast of India from August 10-19th.

There are a few spots left to round out the group - maxes out at 20 people. Cost is $1769 USD for the land portion - you book your own air. This is a "friend of a friend" kind of thing that I was turned onto by someone who helped me organize a trip to Vietnam in '05.

So, if you've got 10 days to kill and want to do something really wild, check it out at:

Just started a new job, I don't have anything close to enough vacation time to do something like this ..... but damn I wish I could! It sounds absolutely fantastic.

How long a flight is it to India from LAX??

That's the hard part for me....that's an awfully long time on a plane.

i just spent 15 mn trying to find cheap tickets from atlanta to india, even though there is no way i could go. a little daydreaming never hurt, right? we'll have to live vicariously through you.. be sure to take a lot of pictures to make us all envious!

This is such a wonderful idea! I went to China with cousins who were not adventurous eaters and I felt like I did not get the full experience. This sounds so great. i am actually tempted !

Oh My God. In my dreams ! I LOVE Indian food and want to learn more about it. In fact, I would love to learn about Asian spices in general. Sounds like a fabulous idea.

Working six days a week as a chef/cook/whatever so just cannot go as much as I would love to. I took Indian cooking lessons years ago and learned so much. I still have all my notes and the recipes. Of course, I'm expecting you to blog a full report, photos, slide show, whatever, included. It will provide such a vicarious adventure....
