There have been travel shows that talk about culture, food and places, but very seldom do you have a show that is all about the uncelebrated accompaniment that makes the meal complete – yes, we are talking about pickles.
Chef Kunal Kapur is all set to take you through a ‘one of a kind’ journey of discovering local flavors of pickles across the country through 18 fascinating episodes of Pickle Nation on Living Foodz channel. The versatile and immensely watch-worthy chef travels across 11 cities of India such as Ahmedabad, Udaipur, Jaipur, Hyderabad, Chennai, Pondicherry, Kochi, Assam, Meghalaya, Varanasi and Goa unraveling an interesting pickle tale of each region.
Pickle Nation is not just about the pickle recipe or the process; it is much more than that. Chef Kunal explores how pickle is the very fabric of our existence, culture, tastes, beliefs and customs and gives us an inside view of each region.
“Making a pickle is the epitome of culinary strength; it is an art that is combined with a high level of science of preserving food. Around the world we have celebrated wine makers, cheese makers and even coffee brewers but we have never given the same stature to pickle makers. I am extremely excited to be unearthing these uniquely Indian stories of pickles & pickle makers, and sharing them with other food lovers..” said Chef Kunal Kapur
