We know that you've come prepared with your guide books. We won't offer you any extensive compendium on food; we don't want you take home recipes from Kolkata either. Leave it upon us to take you through the back alleys of Kolkata's best-kept culinary secrets, the legends, myths, traditions associated therewith that the touristy guide books often fail to take sight of. We've compiled a few readings and videos for you to orient with what's soon going to overwhelm your taste buds. Don't panic, we won't examine you on these!
