This knowledge sharing is our humble effort to reach out to those who are staying at home and seek different recipes they can cook to bring some joy in the lives of their near and dear ones”, said a spokesperson from ITC Hotels.
Talking about the cookery show, ITC Foods spokesperson said, “In the current times when people are spending more time than ever on television and seeking newer content every day, we though it relevant for us to turn tables and participate in creating fresh and relevant content for them. Individuals across the world are pivoting from dine-ins to home-made food and while they make that transition, they are either exploring the chef within, looking to try a new dish or a cuisine or learn a new preparation style. When we decided to create this platform 5 Star Kitchen ITC Chef’s Special, it was to reach every Indian kitchen, share the knowledge and expertise of our chefs and help the audience amp up their dinner table with some time- honoured and contemporary creations”.
“We take pride in our ability to gauge our audience needs and respond with content that entertains and engages them. At a time like this when everyone is stuck inside their homes, we are excited to bring this unique concept on Star Plus. With this one-of-its-kind cooking show format, our viewers will be able to turn their kitchens into 5 Star kitchens” said a spokesperson from Star Plus” said a spokesperson from Star India Network.
