Living Foodz has launched a new show with Chef Kunal Kapur titled ‘Utsav: Thalis of India.’ The show will take viewers on a mesmerising journey across 18 cities and offer a peek into India’s rich culinary heritage. The show was launched on October 16, to be telecast every Monday and Tuesday at 8pm, with repeat telecast every Monday and Tuesday at 11.00am, 2.30pm and 10.30pm on the channel.
On the show, Kapur explores each region and unravels fascinating anecdotes about its people, the regional delicacies, local ingredients, cooking and food-serving techniques. He visits the homes of the locals, temples and marketplaces to discover the vibrant culture and thalis of each city. The show is co-powered by Golden Harvest and the Kitchen Partner is Prestige.
The show emphasises on how a thali is a beautiful amalgamation of a region, its people, traditions, cultures and flavours and is a beautiful reflection of the diversity in our country. Kapur believes there is a story behind every thali and is set to unearth these stories on the show.
He added, “'I am extremely excited to team up with Living Foodz once again, after the success of ‘Pickle Nation’. This time around as well, we are bringing to our viewers hidden gems and fascinating stories from Indian homes with ‘Utsav: Thalis of India’. During the course of the shoot, I have had the fortune of experiencing some of the most wonderful food legacies and traditions passed on through generations from cities across the country.”
On the season finale, Kapur will prepare a Grand Thali based on his travel to the different regions of the country, which will be an amalgamation of the unique delicacies found across the country. This thali will be curated for an esteemed panel of Chefs, Authors and Restaurateurs. “Food has been an integral part of any celebration across the world. It is a great conversation starter and bonds people from various communities instantly. ‘Utsav- Thalis of India’ brings out ‘Unity in Diversity’ in the real sense of the term and celebrates regional Indian cuisine. We are excited to collaborate with Kapur and look forward to the launch this festive season”, said Amit Nair, Business Head, Living Foodz.
