Chef Ranveer Brar's Raja Rasoi gets more anokha
Raja Rasoi Aur Andaaz Anokha opened to rave reviews from viewers and foodies alike. Fans of both, the Raja Rasoi franchise and of celebrity chef host Ranveer Brar found much to like in the new format. It is no surprise then that Season 2 of the successful series is all set to bring fresh episodes on EPIC Channel.
The franchise created and virtually owns the niche in the genre of Indian food stories and in Season 2, Ranveer continues his experimentation with Indian cuisine on the show which he fondly calls his ‘food laboratory’. This time the ‘kitchen of experiments’ is set up in a beautiful retreat home Alibaug -the rustic coastal town of Maharashtra where the chef continues to be ably supported in his whims by his trusted aide – Manu Bhai, played by Manvendra Tripathi. The repartee between the two provides for memorable moments in the show.
The series of 14 episodes is curated with menus set around interesting themes like Food of the Literati, where Ranveer cooks the favourite food of Mirza Ghalib and Rabindranath Tagore while narrating some interesting stories from their lives. Other themes include Railways and Daak Bangla; Kashmiriyat; Tibetan food; among others.
Akul Tripathi, Head, Content & Programming, EPIC Channel added, “India’s infotainment is just incomplete without Indian food. The Raja Rasoi series, right from the inception has been a huge hit with the audiences. Raja Rasoi Aur Anya Kahaaniyaan received rave reviews and along with it several requests to do a cooking format to it. That is how Raja Rasoi Aur Andaaz Anokha was born. Season 1 was lapped up and Ranveer carries the show as if it was made for him. His spontaneity and his easy charm are sure to win hearts all over again.”
“The more you get to know Indian cuisine, the more you realise there is a lot left to discover” commented Chef and Host Ranveer Brar. “Through this show I have deep dived into the DNA of Indian cooking and returning to Raja Rasoi’s kitchen, rediscovering recipes and reviving forgotten ingredients once again was a thrilling experience. We have more insights into our culture of food and Season 2 will cover a lot more than viewers have seen before.”
