A Gastronomy Journey in India

This is the idea... thanks to my association with Sana & Myriam Voyages (with over 25 years of experience), I will be able to be your tour guide to visit India with your palate. Please reserve early, as I don't want to take on too many people on my first culinary trip. I can't wait!!!!
