MahaChallenge ki maha excitement!

Finally, it’s September 9 and the big day…Amul FoodFood MahaChallenge, a show to find India’s first SuperChef, which has been in talks for quite a while now, starts today! So, what’s the show all about – this reality show consists of 2 teams with 8 participants each, mentored by Chef Harpal and Chef Vandana, and Madhuri Dixit and I were present as team leaders throughout to guide them overall. The challenges taken up by the contestants were followed by a series of elimination rounds by jury and judges, consisting of some eminent personalities from both the culinary and glamour world. At the end, there was a winner who finally got the prize – a trip for two to Italy plus a kitchen makeover from Sleek plus a chance to host a show on FoodFood plus gifts from Croma and Borosil and many more…

Maha Challenge wrapped up successfully!

First and foremost, here’s wishing everyone a very Happy Janmashtami!
A month’s already passed by shooting the Maha Challenge episodes, and the final pack up happened on August 19. As always, it was really a great learning experience for me as well as my team. Then, there were some of the lighter and fun moments, all those times when Madhuri had been on the sets. All in all, it was simply superb!
But, for me the hectic schedule just seems unending…just after the wrap up, I had to fly to Delhi, to attend the Indian Restaurant Congress 2011, where I was one of the key speakers.
Back in the office, my team is really tied and super busy with the new Website work. There is a lot which is being done for the revamping of the website… so that when it is launched in its new avatar, there is a lot more for all the food lovers and my fans all over the world. It surely is going to be improved and exciting! So watch out for it…!
For now, let’s just celebrate Janmashtami with some of these recipes…

Busy time continues…

Massive activity for the Maha Challenge shoot. Spent Sunday shooting some episodes with Madhuri Dixit. This show is going to be a grand show and I am sure you are looking forward to it!
Celebrations at home today with Rachita’s birthday so there is bound to be a lot of cooking. At work we are done with coding of the new website and testing of the content management system will start from tomorrow or day after. You will be presented with an all new in a few week’s time – a new website that will not only have more material to read, new features but also more interaction. Alongside, some shoots are being carried out by my team today for Star CJ and Hungama Digital Interface. So there is a lot cooking even at work!
As for some food that I can share right away with you, here goes.
