Alberta Food Tours annual cuisine and culture trips to India with Karen Anderson

Huge thanks to writer Catherine Van Brunschot for the City Palate magazine piece she wrote about the 2014 cuisine and culture trip to India I organized. I’ve been leading these tours with my company Alberta Food Tours and our business partner Indus Travels since 2012.

Catherine’s a writer’s writer. She quietly observes, scribbles notes and jots details. Her camera is always close at hand. She’s able to capture a moment and it’s feeling to share a sense of the traveller’s journey. I hope you enjoy reading her piece from the source: Eating India with Alberta Food Tours

I’m pleased to report that my 2017 trip to India is sold out and that Catherine is returning. When you get to the end of her article, you’ll see I’ve shared with you the answer to the question she poses.

For my 2018 trip to India we’ll return to some places I love – Delhi, Agra, Udaipur, Jodhpur and Jaipur – and also venture to a place I’m longing to visit – Kolkata. Please comment below if you’d like more information about that trip and I’ll be happy to email you an itinerary.

      So wish I was going on this trip. Alas my travel budget and vacation time doesn’t allow it. I know it will be wonderful.

    I am sorry that I did not receive the information on the 2017 India tour as I was interested in receiving the information. When will the 2018 information be available and what time of year will you be going?

    1. Karen Anderson

      Hi Lynette,
      My apologies. We had a big group of friends book the majority of spots and so it went unusually quickly.
      I will email you the 2018 itinerary now.
      With kind regards,
