Our Cuisine & Culture journeys feature celebrity chefs, regional delicacies and Asian fare that could leave you asking for more.

Fusion cuisine has taken root here in the past few years and the ambassador for this movement is Suvir Saran, one of India's most celebrated chefs. He opened Devi in New York City to rave reviews.

Learn about Hinduism, one of the oldest world religions, which traces its history back almost 6000 years to the Indus Valley civilization or witness the teachings of its more recent 15th century offshoot, Sikhism. Most Indian religions believe that our purpose in life is to realize that we are part of God, so that we can leave this plane of existence and rejoin God, thus achieving inner peace. Don’t be surprised if you spot a nude monk walking down the street with sandalwood powder smeared on his head—he might be a Jain monk. Learn about Jainism and its mythological origins. Buddhism, one of the world's major religions, originated in India, from where it spread far and wide and continues to do so.
