Update on our Little India Tour ~

We are so very appreciative of the interest and of the inquiries we’ve received about our Little India tour. It feels only right to share an honest update about the status of this Tour and its availability.

While we fully intended for our Little India Tour to resume this Fall after its initial Spring launch, there has been a shift in our priorities which we could not have predicted a few months ago. Our plans to change certain elements of the Tour – including its team of hosts – have been postponed for now.

Our mom - who has lived with dementia for some time - had some serious health issues over the summer, and she now has hospice care. At the moment she is doing pretty well, for which we are very grateful. We thank you for understanding that our extra time and loving care for her has been our highest priority for these past few months.     Hence, we have postponed certain tasks and projects until we can give them the dedicated time and attention they so deserve. As always, we promise to keep you informed of new developments as they unfold. Please know how very much we appreciate you for your understanding and loyal support. Thank you.

Our very best, Lisa & Diane Scalia Melting Pot Food Tours
