Evocative! Takes one down memory lane, on a nostalgic, delicious trip through India's food stories.

An interesting nostalgia-evoking trip across India - punctuated with delicious food stories. Could have done better fact checking though - Khajuraho is in Orissa? And other such factual inaccuracies.
