Born in a tiny village in Virajpet; a town in Coorg, I have grown up savoring the traditional delicacies. Although I have lived in Bangalore all my life, walking into the kitchen that smelt like the spicy pork curry or the roasted rice roti, is a memory I will never forget. Most of my friends who travel to Coorg are often curious about the food. In this article, I would like to highlight the combinations of starters, main course, deserts and fermented drinks that one would enjoy.
Wine - Let's begin with the starter:
The geography and culture of a region always influences its food. Likewise in Coorg alcohol is a major part of any event. Being a hill station it is relatively chilly, hence a sip of the freshly fermented homemade wine is a common occurrence. It keeps you warm and is a great conversation starter.
