Far away from the hustle and bustle of the busy cities of India, in the tranquil farmland of an Indian village, men and women are hard at work. The history of Agriculture in India dates back to Indus Valley Civilization Era and even before that in some parts of Southern India. Today, India ranks second worldwide in farm output. Most farms in India are small plots of family land. In some parts of India, traditional use of cattle to plough remains in use.
First stop, India
India is the world’s largest producer, consumer and exporter of spices. India contributes 75% of global spice production. According to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), there are about 109 spices and more than 70 of them are produced in India.
AK stresses on the importance of good quality ingredients to make good food. Our Specialty Chef stresses on the importance of good spice to make good curry. There are over 50 spices to choose from, and he’s happy that most of them are available in Brickfields. If something is not available locally, off goes AK on the next flight to India! Once our Specialty Chef is happy with the spice selection, the dry mixture is then ground in our in-house grinder and used within a week to ensure its quality.
