Extreme food vacation: Southeast Asia
A universe apart from the ethnic mom-and-pop eateries stateside, a first encounter with Asia can stagger even sophisticated food professionals.
To truly understand a country’s culture, one need not look much further than the foods people eat and the manner in which they are prepared, served and consumed. As with other countries around the world, food in India is more than just sustenance—it carries a far deeper meaning. Food is also instrumental to rituals and traditions, religious beliefs and the bringing together of the family unit.
