The medieval city of Cordoba stands out for its peaceful co-existence of three religions—Islamic, Jewish, and Christian. While the spectacular architecture and cultural blend is a major draw for travellers, I’m here on a mission to uncover the amazing food of this Andalusian city. My initiation into the cuisine starts with two local favourites: Salmorejo, a cold and creamy soup made with tomato, bread, olive oil, vinegar, and garlic, served at almost every tavern and bar (it comes with small pieces of hard-boiled eggs and Ibérico ham). The other is frituras that comes in three kinds: croquettes fried in extra virgin olive oil; eggplant slices fried in honey; Ibérico pork fillet rolled in Ibérico ham, coated with flour and eggs, and then fried in olive oil.DESTINATION GUIDE For our take on the best food haunts in Europe, go to travelandleisureindia.in
The first step towards reaching Antarctica from India is to fly in to Ushuaia, Argentina. Once you get there, you would need to get on a ship to Antarctica. Ushuaia is the southern-most city in the world and also goes by the name ‘The End of The World’. The two day journey from Ushuaia takes you through the Beagle Channel and the legendary Drake Passage. Crossing the legendary Drake Passage is an unforgettable experience as well as a formidable challenge. Its rough nature has given it the name ‘Sailor’s Everest’. You may even question your sanity for having decided to make your way from India to Antarctica!
