Host Barry Vera finds that the beating heart of Delhi is Old Delhi, where the impressive Moghul architecture looms above the narrow lanes and where delicious Muslim food is served up in an atmosphere of friendly chaos. It is here that unusual delicacies are on offer and the highly pungent labyrinth of one of the largest wholesale spice market in Asia beckons the soul of a chef. Barry glimpses into the spirit of a compassionate religion, in the communal kitchens of a Sikh temple where enough food is cooked to nourish tens of thousands of pilgrims each day.
