The new show takes you globetrotting, exploring the hottest trends in international cuisine that are not widely known
September 5, 2016
Living Foodz is launching a new show, ‘The Global Menu’, with chef Ranveer Brar. In this show, the chef will introduce cuisine from South America, Middle East, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, Korea, Hungary, South Africa, Ethiopia, Mongolia and Myanmar, which have not been widely explored.
“The Indian palette, for the longest time, has primarily been exposed to a narrow range of ‘international’ cuisines, barely venturing beyond Chinese, Italian, Mexican, or more recently, Japanese food. Here too, what we get to taste are highly Indianised versions of popular dishes. During my many travels, I have discovered that the brilliant and delectable food culture across South America, Scandinavia, and closer home in Sri Lanka, remains largely uncharted. I hope to bring the world to the Indian dining table with ‘The Global Menu,’” says Ranveer Brar.
With this new spin on world cuisine, Living Foodz intends to change the perception of international food. Amit Nair, Business Head, Living Foodz, says, “The stereotype of the Indian with conservative taste buds is slowly but steadily changing, especially in metros. Today, we find millennials actively scouring for newer and more authentic global cuisines. The Global Menu taps into this trend of aspiring towards newer travel and food experiences. The show will definitely strike a chord with viewers as it bridges the gap between them and takes them an exotic culinary experience like never before.”
The Global Menu will introduce the audience to delicacies like Garlic Quinoa from Peru, Argentine Black Beans a la Olla, Berry Pilaf from Iran, Anzac cookies from New Zealand, Sri Lankan Koki, Hungarian Goulash and SamousaThouk from Myanmar among others.
As the host, chef Ranveer will ensure that cooking instructions are interspersed with fascinating cultural and travel-based anecdotes, like how the collective obsession for ceviche in Peru led to the government declaring a ‘National Ceviche Day’ to commemorate the country’s favourite food.
Join chef Ranveer Brar every Wednesday and Thursday at 2:30 pm from September 7 as he takes you on a journey of the culinary treasure troves around the world. Repeat telecast of the episodes will air on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 5 pm and 8 pm.
