A Taste of Kerala

We love the food of Kerala, and it’s so difficult to find any (decent) in Mumbai, so when we first thought of visiting Kerala, our mouths started watering thinking of appams and stew and parota and beef fry.

For someone who has lovingly regarded French cuisine from afar with awestruck eyes, being in Paris meant three things: Eating, Cooking and Shopping for food and kitchen equipment. While Eating and Shopping could easily be taken care of one day at a time, Cooking required a bit of pre-planning. Kitchen equipped accommodation? Check. Registration for a
