Amit Dixit has been writing on travel and food for two decades now. He loves trying out new dishes, interacting with chefs and teasing out their stories and going behind the scenes to see what makes our best restaurants tick. His culinary adventures have taken him to heritage distilleries in Ireland, Australia's inventive wineries, the tapas bars of Madrid, royal tables in Rajasthan, and the lanes of Old Srinagar redolent with the aroma of freshly baking bread. When he has time left over from wining and dining, he also likes to cook. He is also interested in a sustainable approach to food.
