Epic TV to air ‘Raja Rasoi’ S2 from 26 Oct
MUMBAI: Hindi infotainment channel Epic TV will air the second season of its popular show Raja Rasoi Aur Anokha Andaaz from 26th October, every Friday at 10 pm.
Celebrity chef Ranveer Brar will continue to experimentation with Indian cuisine on the show which he fondly calls his ‘food laboratory.’ In the second season, the ‘kitchen of experiments’ is set up in a retreat home Alibaug.
The series of 14 episodes is curated with menus set around interesting themes like ‘Food of the Literati’, where Brar 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.
Epic Channel content and programming head Akul Tripathi said, “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.”
Brar commented, “The more you get to know Indian cuisine, the more you realise there is a lot left to discover. 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.”
