Be the first to know about the latest issue of Cuisine Noir, updates, events and professionals and organizations who are a part of our culinary movement. The experience of being in India for the first time is best described as randomness. All of your senses will be on complete alert as you buzz pass the chaos of the streets filled with different smells from the incense of the temples, to meats roasting on tandoori grills to the stench of cow dung being used as home insulation.
If you are planning a vacation to the mystical and colorful country of India, Our first piece of advice is to plan multiple trips! Geographically, India is not a very large country (about one-third the size of the U.S.) but it is so diverse that each of the twenty-eight states offers an entirely different experience. Just as if you were to travel to Europe, you wouldn't be able to see the rich culture and historic splendor of each of the countries in one week, it is impossible to experience all that India has to offer in anything less than a month.
