Living Foodz is launching a new show titled ‘Hello Summer’, anchored by Chef Gautam Mehrishi, starting April 16. The show reignites the nostalgia of summer vacations when exams would end and everyone would gear up for a two-month summer break. The show will be telecast from Monday to Tuesday at 1.30 pm. Repeat telecast of the episodes will air every Monday and Tuesday at 3.30pm and 6.30pm. The show is co-powered by Airtel and Lotus herbal.
Hello Summer is interspersed with Mehrishi’s anecdotes and childhood memories. He recreates some closely-guarded family recipes, which he relished during his summer holidays.
The 13-episode series will explore varied themes such as birthdays, kitty parties, family picnics, pool parties, travel and summer weddings, in each episode. Mehrishi will showcase a range of refreshing snacks and drinks such as mango and chia pudding, Sugarcane smoked tofu, banana bread French toast, green chai latte, jackfruit mousse and daab malai khichdi. Each episode features a segment dedicated to children, which will include recipes that can be enjoyed during holidays such as popsicles, ice cream jello and rose veggie tart. Viewers can also learn how to whip-up dishes using the ultimate summer fruit mangoes.
Mehrishi said, “Hello Summer captures the beautiful nostalgia of summer vacations and those magical childhood days. The show allows viewers to experiment with a variety of recipes ranging from quick-fix snacks for kids, dishes for a leisurely Sunday brunch and energising summer coolers. I am excited to collaborate with Living Foodz after the success of 100% Veg Season 2 and look forward to the launch of the show.”
