Specialist tour operator, Globe Travel Centre has launched 'The Great Indian Cook Off Tour', an exclusive culinary tour where five couples go on a journey across five exotic destinations in India.
Besides learning a distinctive style of cuisine at each of the destinations, the couples will also have the opportunity to explore and experience the grandeur of India. The tour will end with a Master Chef style cook-off where the five couples will use the culinary skills they have learnt over the journey, to battle it out for a £1,000 cash prize.
Throughout the tour, couples will stay in luxury accommodation and will explore the bustling metropolis of Delhi, the rich culture of Lucknow, the charm of Calcutta and the history of Hyderabad, before travelling to ‘God’s own country’ Kerala.
As well as sightseeing, the tour includes visits to local markets, escorted street food walks and the opportunity to learn authentic Indian cooking styles from local cookery experts.
The entire event will be recorded by a camera crew and an edited copy provided to the couples.
The company's managing director, Rajeev Olickel, said: “For the last ten years we have been providing personalised, tailor-made holidays to the experiential British traveller and 'cuisine' has been a consistently favourite theme amongst travellers. We are therefore excited about launching a tour that not only gives travellers an opportunity to learn the true essence of various Indian culinary styles and explore India but also engage in a cook off that will make this a lifetime experience.”
