Speaking about the new season, Akul Tripathi, Head - Content and Programming, EPIC Channel said, “Lost Recipes has been one of our most popular shows and has an enviable following. Food is an integral part of any country’s heritage and the of India makes for a culinary extravaganza. The response by the audience and the requests for more forgotten stories of this vital part of India’s culture encouraged us to put together this second season. We hope through the show we are able to at least shine the spotlight and document, if not contribute to the revival of this precious intangible heritage.”

Celebrity chef and author Aditya Bal added, “For the second season, we have also visited remote areas to discover new people, communities, and places. The lost recipes that I have encountered on this ongoing journey with the show are nothing short of wonders. I am so glad to be part of this unique experience with EPIC Channel. This is a great way to restore and showcase India’s lost culinary culture.”

Straight from the traditional kitchens that have stood the test of time, the 10-episode season will explore delectable dishes like Dum Ke Aandey from Hampi, the once grand kingdom of Vijaynagar , Jhoda Besara from Odisha, Kodi Mamsapu Motikallu from Andhra Pradesh, Suksi Pudga and Pan Roti from Chhattisgarh, and Ukkad Amba from  Maharashtra, and dishes from North India.
