Village Cuisine Experience

India has primarily been a rural country by virtue of its being, that later transformed into an urban base that still is low in count. As they say old habits die hard, an average Indian still at times vouches for the village cuisine of his or her region and loves to indulge in to it at times, though giving it a name of a ‘luxurious experience’ that is rare in daily life.
 
Indian cuisine is the general term for the wide variety of cooking styles from India. In reality, India hosts an even greater number of distinct regional cuisines than the entire European continent. Indian Village food is almost always prepared with fresh ingredients along with delicate mixtures of many different fresh and dried spices and the exact recipes often vary greatly from one household to the next. The culinary difference between the regions is so vast that it almost tastes from a different country all together. To refer to Indian Cuisine is almost a misnomer, since the regional dishes vary tremendously from region to region.
 
As Indian villages today have the so called ‘luxury’ of eating the freshest of fresh vegetables and meat, using the freshly ground spices, follow the traditional cooking patterns et al, it sure contributes immensely to the dramatic change in cooking style and the taste of food. Some of it is due to the loyalty of villagers to the age-old cooking systems and patterns that are followed in Indian Village cooking, while other reason is the limited availability of resources and modern cooking techniques, such as a simple gas stove that is still rare in villages and our villagers still stick to the traditional wood or cow-dunk cake fire for cooking, unavailability of electric power to run refrigerators for storage, forces them (or gives them the luxury) to buy fresh, cook fresh and eat fresh at all times. 
 
On this tour we take you to a countryside (45 min drive from Lucknow) into a traditional Village, where you unlearn all that is urban and learn this traditional ethnic cooking from scratch, cook under supervision and enjoy a limited but a very unique cuisine that urbanized call ‘luxury’.
