One of Lewis the Lion’s favourite things about India was definitely the food! Indian food is famous for its spices and every household has its own spice-tray. Lewis the Lion discovered that many Indians don’t eat meat and instead have lots of vegetables, lentils and rice. He was blown away by the rich variety of foods and how the food varied from region to region across India. So much so that when he was in the village of Orchha, he attended a cookery demonstration class. You can see what happened in his photo gallery below. To his surprise the class also involved garlands, chai masala tea and henna hand painting.
One of Lewis the Lion’s favourite spices is ginger.
