But, before you freak out, let me be clear: I’m totally doing it on the up and up and am heading there legally with the folks at the Los Angeles World Affairs Council. In case you can’t tell, I’m beyond excited. Friends have described it to me like a 50s fossil – a culture frozen in time with amazing cars, great hospitality, and the best rum ever, but with really horribly crappy internet.

Wish You Were Here: Indian Burritos with Curried Cauliflower

Wish You Were Here: India | aidamollenkamp.com | #pairswellwithfood

Sometimes I start cooking and have no idea when, how, or where the recipe came from. But other times I can pinpoint it down to the moment or, in this case, the picture.

From here on out, each month I’ll share one of my favorite photos from each place I’ve traveled and show you the recipe that photo inspired, like how my visit to the Taj Mahal inspired these Indian Burritos.
