Recipes From Afar: Mango Sandesh, Calcutta

September 19, 2012

In this guest post, Sukanya of the food and travel blog Saffronstreaks shares with us the recipe for a favorite Bengali milk-based sweet from Kolkata (Calcutta): aam sandesh, or Indian fudge infused with mango. Of course, this “fudge” is not made with chocolate but with cottage-cheese-like chhana (also spelled chenna); the translation stems more from the dish’s texture.

Top 10 Old Delhi Foods

June 28, 2012

Last spring, North India provided one of our most memorable eating experiences, especially within the walled confines of Old Delhi, where, among the dilapidated surrounds and overall crush of humanity, each delicious bite felt like a small victory. When BootsnAll Travel recently approached us about doing a blog-post exchange, it was the first destination that sprung to mind, as we fear it is all too easy for a…

Recipes from Afar: Papri Chaat & Butter Paneer Masala, North India

December 22, 2011

A half-year after returning home from a few weeks in North India, I thought it would be a good idea to cook some Indian dishes for friends. Twelve friends, to be exact. It wasn’t long after I emailed said friends that I began questioning the wisdom of this decision. Indian food is notoriously difficult for a non-Indian to pull off. Sure, having access to the right spices is…

20 Hours in Agra

June 24, 2011

We often feel like we’re on a scavenger hunt when we travel for EYW. Sometimes we have just three days in a city to find all the foods we’ve researched, come up with good alternatives, entertain new ideas suggested by locals we meet, identify suitable “burn it off” locations.
