Food Story

Lisa has always been interested in trying new foods and restaurants. During Lisa's trips abroad, she has discovered that food has the ability to shape your journey and define your memories. Her love for Indian food started when she spent a month in southeast India.  Her dorm's cook would prepare special and elaborate Indian dishes during her stay.
