TLC to take viewers on culinary journey with ‘Madhur Jaffery’s Curry Nation’
MUMBAI: Celebrating the flavour of Indian curries, lifestyle channel TLC is all set to take its viewers on a culinary journey with the queen of curry Madhur Jaffrey in a new show called ‘Madhur Jaffery’s Curry Nation’.
The 10-part series will follow Jaffrey as she travels across Britain to find out their love for Indian curry, visiting local Indian and South Asian communities, and revealing how it’s possible to sample the whole of Indian cuisine without leaving the British Isles.
The show will premiere on 2 June, airing at 8 pm from Monday to Friday.
Discovery Networks Asia Pacific EVP and GM South Asia and head of revenue pan-regional ad sales and Southeast Asia Rahul Johri said, “TLC continues to present the best and premium range of cuisine programmes from across the globe. This June, we have culinary legend Madhur Jaffrey in her new series celebrating the British love affair with Indian cuisine.
The show will feature Jaffrey travelling to places like London, Birmingham, Glasgow and Leicester, creating her very own food map, witnessing first-hand how Indian food has been integrated into the national way of life and discovering why it’s constantly voted as one of the nation’s favourite foods.
Besides, she will also showcase her favourite recipes with influences from all over the subcontinent like Punjabi, Goan, Parsi and Bengali, etc.
In each episode, Jaffrey will demonstrate how to cook incredible curry step-by-step and will take viewers through an array of recipes. Her innovative and contemporary style of cooking will be brought to the fore as she gives some traditional recipes a twist like pairing Aloo Gobi with a British roast lamb.
She will also visit restaurants that create new dishes, places of worship where traditional curries are served daily and the homes of British South Asians, where she uncovers their different and varied culinary cultures.
In her journey, Jaffrey discovers that although traditional recipes are to be found everywhere, new British versions of classic dishes are emerging too.
