FOX Traveller follows celebrity chef David Rocco's culinary journey through India
FOX Traveller is all set to launch Celebrity Chef David Rocco’s Italian-Indian culinary adventure on the Indian television screen with ‘David Rocco Dolce India.’ Watch the culinary genius immerse himself in the charm and beauty of India as he whips-up mouthwatering Italian delicacies with an Indian tadka every Thursday & Friday night at 9:30 pm, starting 20th March 2014 only on FOX Traveller.
The Italian-obsessed chef will be eating his way through Indian cities - Mumbai, Rajasthan, Delhi and Chennai, combining ingredients and techniques from his beloved Italy with those he’s never experienced before. So, whether it is celebrating the Hindu festival of Holi, cooking a meal at Delhi's Bangla Sahib Gurduwara or simply rubbing shoulders with Bollywood stars like Neha Dhupia, David is not just exploring new flavors of food but also people, culture and traditions.
Through the show, David uses his Italian-rooted passion for food drawing inspiration from the differences & similarity between the two countries to create sumptuous delicacies. Each episode will see David prepare an “Indi-talian” fusion dish. So get ready to see the ultimate cultural exchange on Indian television as David creates an Indian-style risotto incorporating the local cheese ‘paneer’ and peas - a spin on both the Indian classic dish Mattar Paneer and the Italian Risi-e-Bisi or creates a fusion of stuffed naan with panzerotti/calzone.

With Dolce India, FOX Traveller gave me the opportunity to explore my two passions – food & travel.
