India: Thekkady - The Land of Spices

India: Thekkady - The Land of Spices

Thekkady is known as "the land of spices"; it is a thriving village located in central Kerala, a small state in southwest India, which produces 25% of the entire world's spices. Host Sian Richards and her guide, Sadhir, visit a spice plantation where cardamon, nutmeg and pepper are harvested. Later in the program she and Chef Jacob will makes the most of the local spices to cook Mutton Pepper Fry, a regional favorite. Another guide, Nagendra, takes her on a tour of the spectacular Periyar Wildlife Preserve, which is an exotic 300-square-mile wildlife sanctuary; the only one of its kind where wild Indian elephants can be observed up close. On a boat cruise around Periyar Lake Sian sees Periyar Lake Palace; then she learns that Indian elephants are smaller, with smaller ears, and are more even-tempered than their African cousins. She meets the classical Indian dance guru, Natya Griham, and joins in on a Bharatanatyam class. Also, because Malayalam is spoken all over Kerala, a translator, Sudhir, translates key words into English. 07/09DE JSCA 30 min.
