The food and glamour quotient on Indian television will touch a new high this year. Living Foodz, the leading foodtainment channel will launch yet another innovative show ‘I Love Cooking’, hosted by actor, former VJ and food blogger Maria Goretti. The show, which will launch on January 14, marks Maria’s second innings on television as a home chef.
“They say that the atmosphere of a home depends on the mood of the cook on the day. I’ve come back to television after 14 years and I am ecstatic that it is in my own skin and comfort zone – as a passionate, home style chef.” says an excited Maria.
The team behind ‘I Love Cooking’ has gone the extra mile to ensure that the look and feel of the show is an extension of Maria’s personality and cooking space. The kitchen décor is similar to that of her own home featuring an indoor as well as an outdoor organic garden and kitchen with Maria’s own kitchen equipment. Viewers will also get to see a fusion of Maria’s quirkiness and her love for cooking: experimental cooking with her favourite ingredients, stress busting cooking at her favourite time in the night at the leisurely pace she usually prefers.
“We at Living Foodz wanted to create a show that resonates with the modern, urban connected population who love whipping up a tasty meal or snack which can not only help to satisfy their hunger but also sometimes be their comfort food when they feel down and out. ‘I Love Cooking’ is a first-of-its-kind show that caters specifically to this audience.” said Amit Nair, Business Head of Living Foodz.
The recipes on the show are Maria’s personal favourites such as cheesy rice bites, apple chutney with pitorh which are loved by her family, especially her children. She adds a modern twist to traditional recipes creating exciting combinations such as Makke ke pancakes with Sarson ka Saag gravy. In addition to demonstration of interesting food, the show will also have a DIY section that incorporates kitchen and home waste and knick knacks. Maria extends an invitation to everyone to tune in to Living Foodz on Thursday and Friday starting January 14th at 9:00pm to join her and experience the joy and warmth of cooking in her own special way.
