The average length of my visits to Pune is just three days – totally insufficient to do all the things that this amazing city offers your palate. So, I’ve worked out my formula for tasting the most, in the least possible time. But first, a disclaimer: I have a weakness for the cuisine of the Konkanastha Brahmins whose stronghold Pune is. How their fastidiousness and their obdurate refusal to change a particle of their spicing or ingredients has kept their food pristine for the last three decades since I have been visiting their city is a badge of honour. I wish more cities and towns had the same steadfastness as Pune!
