Just watched an episode of NDTV Good Times' Highway on my Plate.
It was the one where Rocky takes on the mighty bhoot jolakia chilles with Mayur playing the compere. One of the many reasons why this show remains the only locally produced food and travel show on Indian television that I look forward to.
So it was good to hear when Mayur wrote in recently with the news of their book winning 'Best in the World' award in the Celebrity cookbook category at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards in Paris.
This is what Mayur said, "Hi Kalyan hope your back is feeling better these days?
Wanted to share that our book 'Highway On My Plate' just won the 'Best in the World' award in the Celebrity cookbook category at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards in Paris.
There were people and books there from over a 160 countries. At the International Show Kitchen there we made and served over 10 kgsof Sevpuri, bhelpuri and Jhalmudi. We also did a cooking demo at the Cordon Bleu culinary School in Paris for their students and master chefs. They thoroughly enjoyed the 'malai chingdi', 'karari Masala bhindi' and the dhaba style Masala Chai we made.
It was amazing to see the love, warmth and keen interest that our country evokes in the minds of the world.
Thanks for your faith :) now you know who is responsible for the smilies in the book
Congrats guys. You deserve it.
