Don't miss this opportunity to take a unique culinary and cultural expedition with Chef Floyd Cardoz to Mumbai and Goa!



From street snacks to fine dining, we will taste scrumptious fare in a variety of special settings - private homes, casual eateries, palaces, chic restaurants, old world establishments.


Market Tours

Very little can match the exhilaration of experiencing India’s food and spice markets first hand. Expert guides will lead us through some of the most interesting ones.


Cooking Workshops

Our immersive, hands-on approach translates into several opportunities to learn from the best and to cook alongside celebrated chefs.


Cuisine and Culture

Cuisine and culture go hand in hand. History, art, architecture, social issues, politics, business and more will be on every menu.


About Kilachand + Karp

Inspired by the notion that life should be a constant adventure revolving around food, discovery and sharing, Kilachand + Karp is a new venture with a unique point of view. The spotlight is on Asia, a region of the world known for its myriad culinary traditions as well as its influence on contemporary global cuisine.

Judi and Karen, formerly of the Asia Society, are excited to launch culinary tours, starting with India, that tap into the rich gastronomy of the region and the innovative ways it is being interpreted by the most talented practitioners today.


What is Culinary Tourism?

Kilachand + Karp co-founders, Judi and Karen, sit down with Jeopardy champion and gadfly about town, Austin Rogers, to talk gastro-adventures and why K+K is starting their journeys in India.

The Buzz

Feature in the Hindustan Times: Travelling On Their Stomachs

I can’t think of two more imaginative, resourceful and connected individuals to lead immersive culinary tours to India and other destinations. Judi and Karen were stars at the Asia Society. They have mastered the diplomacy of food and will make great ambassadors in that field.
— Ambassador Nicholas Platt, President Emeritus, Asia Society
“As someone who has witnessed and participated in the ‘dining out’ movement in India over the past twenty five years, it’s rather unfortunate that culinary tourism in India is so underdeveloped and underappreciated in spite of it screaming out to be experienced!”
— Rahul Akerkar, Chef and Restaurateur

"The tours don’t only feature a whole lot of dining, but also hands on activities and market tours, chef-led meals and interaction with specialists across food-related fields (business, farming/ agriculture, journalism, nutrition, etc), along with access to receptions and dinners in private homes, apart from much more."
