Discovery Channel is all set to take its viewers through a colourful and fascinating glimpse into Indian culture, food and customs in ‘Feast India’ every Saturday at 9 pm for the next two months. Discovery Channel, for the first time, is showcasing one of the best India specific programmes on their channel.
English-born chef Barry Vera savours the surprising delights of simple street food and the amazing variety of regional cuisine as he immerses himself and viewers in the diverse cultural influences that make each region of India so distinct.
Along the way, he enjoys a delectable meal at Gurudwara Bangla Sahib in Delhi; where several thousand devotees are served daily. From the small plantation town of Kumili in Kerala to the chaotic buzz of Mumbai, the home to Dabbawallahs, from a village wedding in Pushkar to the festivities of Diwali, ‘Feast India’ captures the colourful, diverse and intensely beautiful India.
Raja Balasubramanian, Brand Director, Discovery Channel, said, “‘Feast India’ highlights the diverse Indian cuisines as Barry Vera takes viewers through a culinary journey across India. Apart from its gastronomy, the series also presents the fascinating and colourful cultures and festivals of India.”
The series, which began April 1 with a village wedding, covered Ghanerao, a small town in central Rajasthan. The episode also featured Pushkar, home to the famous annual camel fair where more than 50,000 camels take part in a beauty pageant.
The series will culminate with Indian Offering on May 20, where host Vera explains how he has been inspired by the people and the food of India and provides an understanding of the spices that make up the myriad flavours he has enjoyed.
