Zee Khana Khazana brings 'The Great India Rasoi with Chef Ranveer Brar
Following its revamp, Zee Khana Khazana has brought in a host of new shows. Making an entry into the list is ‘The Great Indian Rasoi’, a travel food show shot across 7 cities in India on which Chef Ranveer Brar goes around re- discovering the flavours of India.
Unique in its research and perspective, the Great Indian Rasoi will see this zealous chef humbly cooking with 95-year-old khansamas in Lucknow at one end and non chalantly going out distributing breads to south Goa on the other. He absorbs and spreads the joy and abundance of food through this show. The show is slated to go on air in late June 2014 on Zee Khana Khazana.
The host of this show is an experienced and passionate chef who has traveled the world and come back home to experience food from his quirks and humblings. Being series creative for the show Ranveer has “tried to do justice to the Ancient, Vast and under researched cuisine of India” as he puts it.
The show sees Chef Brar interacting inquisitively and passionately with the street folk, homemakers and Masters of the trade with whom he shares meals, moments and culinary experiences.
Chef Brar started cooking from the streets and this humility and respect for food creates an instant connect with the audience and fellow culinarians. A modest guy who loves cooking and doesn’t mind saying “I don’t know”, his unique perspective and storytelling ability lends an attractive character to his encounters with different families, religions, festivals and generations that have played an important role in keeping alive the revered flavors of India.
Unheard, untold, NEVER seen before food stories on television is USP of this show along with Ranveer’s persona. There is a little known and a lot more unknown that unfolds through every single episode of The Great Indian Rasoi.
The Great Indian Rasoi looks at cuisine and all that influenced it to have that identity as we know it today. Chef Brar through his interesting journey in the show pays a tribute to the Indian culture and the essence of that culture, FOOD.
