Once consumed, feelings of infusion, vitalisation, empowerment, elevation, even travel into other worlds or possession by the divine had been reported. So important was this drink, that there is an entire chapter with 114 hymns that have been dedicated to this drink alone - in the Rigveda, no less. This week, in the fourteenth episode of the series Fabulous Foods, we attempt to solve the world’s greatest unsolved culinary mystery, that originated in India. We travel across the cold terrain of Siberia to the arid landscapes of Iran and Peninsular India, and maybe discover the source of the Soma.
