The Maharaja’s Express, due to launch on 6th March, heralds a new era in opulent travel putting other luxury trains into the sidings for sheer comfort, state-of-the-art facilities and personal space. Traveling across India, onboard adventurers will explore some of the sub-continent’s finest sights, and now, thanks to Vivek Singh climbing on board, a culinary journey through each destination.
Singh’s passion for his homeland and food is sure to engage and enlighten his audience. Tales of Royal Courts recipes and traditional hunting, before game was banned, are some of the many themes that will be discussed, while the subtle nuances between dishes from the Southern states of Mumbai to the Northern frontiers of Jaipur will be explained in their traditional context and his own, celebrated contemporary style.
As the first Pan-India luxury train, the Maharaja’s Express will cut across state borders opening up spectacular parts of India that are normally difficult for a luxury traveler to experience. Alongside Vivek’s insightful talks, the itinerary encompasses a host of experiences en route. They may include lunch at the private residence of an erstwhile feudal family in Jambughoda or an elephant polo match at Dera Amer.
Vivek Singh has turned guide and guru for this truly unique gastronomic experience, so sit back and relax as your carriage awaits.
