To give viewers a first-hand experience of delectable and scrumptious dishes, AXN tied up with Nature’s Basket, Pune to recreate recipes from the most loved culinary show Top Chef. Based on the invite, Tummy Cravings went to witness the live cooking session by Chef Saransh, which was held at the Nature’s Basket outlet, Koregaon Park.
Chef Saransh re-created top 3 recipes for the audience to taste – Macrons with Guacamole, Quinoa Pasta cooked with Zucchini Salsa Verde and Jerk Halibut with Mango slaw. He displayed the simple techniques used to cook some of the finest dishes and encouraged Punekars to try them out at home. It was definitely an enriching cooking session for all the food enthusiasts!
During the session, Chef Saransh said,“I started following AXN’s Top Chef since I was a student so the experience of creating the dishes from the show live at Nature’s Basket was very exciting. While it looks easy on screen, when you actually create it live you understand the efforts that goes into preparing it. For me as a chef, it’s always a learning curve to cook somebody else’s recipe.”
He further adds, “In fact, a few years ago, I got a chance to meet the host of Top Chef – Ms. Padma Lakshmi and we had a great conversation about the show. She is wonderful and makes the Indian audience relate to Top Chef even more.”
