Part 3 – Food and Drink
I usually travel solo on most of my trips and hence am in control of the quantities of food and drink that I am served.
But on this trip to Sterling Wayanad since I was a part of a larger group, I had to deal with menus that were curated in advance and in an attempt to showcase the traditional delicacies of the region, the head chef Satish and his team had pulled out all the stops.
What followed was a deluge of Malabar style dishes that had us in a food induced, permanently comatose state. It was just one meal after the other in quick succession and each one so carefully and accurately crafted, that it left me awestruck at the effort that had gone into making sure that every detail was just perfect.
Needless to say that despite all the moaning and groaning, I made sure to sample every single morsel and stuffed myself silly with all the goodies.
And no, the undulating terrain did not knock off a proportionate number of calories but yes I needed something to hush my conscience, so I convinced myself that it did 😀
