A native of the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, Nina moved to New Orleans and was stricken by the meld of culture and cuisine. This in turn got her interested in her own background and how heritage influences flavor. She’s excited to explore the spices of India which had a hand in defining Caribbean dishes.
Food & Adventure
We check out local ancient spice markets, tour historic sites like a 15th-century fortress and the world’s busiest train station. We also dig into local life, eating dinner with a family in their home and Jodhpur, and exploring wildlife by safari at a family-run wilderness camp. We’ll be busy, but be rewarded at every turn.
Where We Stay
Across three Indian states, around the country, from city to desert, coast to jungle, we’ll be on the move. But our tranquil, unhurried stays at some of India’s finest hotels will show us the best of each place we visit. Each with its own influence, history and style they all share the heightened grandeur no India trip would be complete without.
