Taste of Kerala


The most interesting series that I've recently discovered on Youtube is Amrita TV's Taste of Kerala series. Unfortunately, you need to be able to understand spoken Malayalam to be able to enjoy the programming, but if you do, you are in for a treat.

The intent is to travel around Kerala (and amusingly enough parts of the US) getting local and regional special dishes cooked by families and individuals. The effect is spectacular, with this week's uploads providing a good glimpse into why this is addictive:I check this weekly. The episodes where the host travels to the US are specifically amusing: salt dispensers, the relative size of onions and dried coconut flakes are amongst the things I take for granted, but are still unusual from an Indian perspective.

Hey,

I was in Austin all last week and just got back to my office. I saw you left me a note. Sorry I missed you. Let me know if you're still around.

Are you still there? Now that I'm in Cascadia I've failed to reach you :(
