“PRESERVE THE OLD, BUT KNOW THE NEW”

Valley Culture is tradition reshaped in global palates. The mountains have forever been a place for repose and well being. The mineral rich soil, pure and sparkling water, and most importantly the innocent natives together keep the traditional food of the mountains nutritious and healthy.

Valley Culture India, the brainchild of Vaidya Shikha Prakash and Mr. Robin Nagar,  set foot on the foundation of ‘You Are What You Eat.’ With the mission to ruralize urban food habits, both Shikha and Robin embarked on a journey across the Himalayas, discovering and exploring communities that have been extracting, pounding, and making healthy food by hand for generations.

Mapping the superfoods certified by nature, the duo soon integrated the urban food sensibilities into age-old traditions of the food culture passed on from one generation to another by the women residing in the Himalayas.
