Introducing: The Living Food Diwali Collection

Introducing: The Living Food Diwali Collection

Diwali, the unabashed festival of light and laughter, is one of the biggest festivals in India. It means different things for different communities. If you are from North India, your Diwali story lifts a page from the epic tale of Ramayana. It marks the victorious return of its royal protagonist, Rama, after he defeats Ravana. If your family is from the South, Diwali plucks from the other great epic, Mahabharata, telling the story of Krishna, who defeated a tyrant. 

In Eastern India, communities celebrate Diwali as Kali Puja, while in Western India, it is about celebrating the grandeur of the goddess Laxmi and inviting her to your house. The best part is that everywhere we celebrate, we light a lamp! 

As our tribute to the diversity and richness of Indian culinary heritage, we have handpicked the finest selection of traditional flavors from all across India. Just like the rich cultural tapestry of India that weaves together multitudes of different traditions - our Diwali collection is an ode to the varied delicacies found across regions in India, bringing India closer. 

From regional namkeens to handmade sweets - our festive collection is handcrafted, specially for your friends and family.  The Living Food festive collection boxes are artfully designed to capture the diversity of our traditional festive delicacies and make for excellent gift boxes.
