Long before the time of Christ, the lure of spicestook traders and seafarers to Kerala, a prosperous and highly literate state on the tropical Malabar Coast ofsouth-western India. Saint Thomas the Apostle also travelled this spice route, preaching to and convertingseveral Brahmin families who later intermarried with the Syrians who settled in Kerala; the Syrian Christians orNazaranis of Kerala were born of this confluence.Centuries later, ayurvedic massage resorts and scenicbackwaters make this lush land a top tourist destination, and spices still draw both traveller and gourmand tothe rich, abundant culinary tradition of this people.
