Ladies, tired of following the usual format of kitty parties every week? Here’s something that will bring some kind of innovation to your ‘friendly chit-chat’ sessions. Kitchen Champion, the cookery reality show on Colors, enters its fourth edition today afternoon. This time, the show moves out of the studio.
The channel has designed a website that provides everything from fun and quick games and activities to some exotic yet simple recipes that can be rustled up for the girl friends coming over for a jam session of another sort. That’s not all. The website also provides you with a phone number that will not only help you catch up with the recipes you’ve missed during the noon show, but will also give you some extra recipes that weren’t part of the capsule.
There’s also a section where the chef-judge on the show, Gauti, gives you tips to speed up work in the kitchen, including preparing striking garnishes, adding the X-factor to regular food items and using common ingredients in the kitchen to rustle up something exciting and innovative that can be relished in between spicy conversations.
Ashvini Yardi, head of programming, Colors, the channel broadcasting the show, admits that the idea came from the lakhs of emails and snail mails that women had sent them as feedback on the show. “After three seasons back-to-back, we took time off to research for season four where we found that kitty party ladies, and even aspiring kitty party organisers took the games on our show very seriously,” she says. “So, we decided to put together a lot of these one-minute games on a website along with some other valuable help.”
