Living Foodz launches new show 'Northern Flavours'

MUMBAI: Living Foodz has launched a new show titled Northern Flavours celebrating the authentic recipes and cooking styles from the subcontinent region. The show will go on air from 28 March 2016 every Monday and Tuesday at 2 pm with a repeat telecast at 7:30 pm.  

Exploring hidden regional recipes from Rajasthan, Delhi, Haryana, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Uttaranchal, Bihar, Jharkhand and Uttar Pradesh, the channel will introduce acclaimed culinarian chef Ajay Chopra on the channel for the first time.

Chopra will intersperse the show with interesting anecdotes behind delectable dishes like Murg Shikasta Hariprasada, a delicacy from Uttar Pradesh created by Begam Akhtar.

Northern Flavours will also see the chef recreating other dishes like Bhoot ka Halwa, from Rajasthan, Besan ki Kheer and Aloo Wadiya from Punjab, Dal ka Dulha&Potol Mithai from Bihar and Sikandari Raan from Delhi.

“North Indian food has been shaped primarily by the traveller. The region has witnessed a constant movement of people, including armies, trading communities saints and fakirs, who have all taken ingredients and flavours far and wide. More recently, refugees from Pakistan carried the sanjha chulha (village kitchens of rural Punjab) to many parts of North India, adding another interesting layer to an already hybrid cuisine. The trucker community too, primarily Punjabis, has spawned the quintessential highway dhabas across the region. Overall, the food is a wonderfully rich mixture of multiple cultural influences and it is with great excitement and pride that I look forward to its launch”, said Chopra.

 “We are excited to bring chef Ajay Chopra on board with the launch of Northern Flavours. Through this show, we aim to bring the hidden dishes of North India in to the limelight because we believe that they appeal to a global palette. The show will ignite a sense of nostalgia among viewers from these states who once cooked these scrumptious dishes,” said Living Foodz business head Amit Nair.
