After the success of the first season My Yellow Table is back on NDTV Good Times channel  yet again hosted by celebrity chef Kunal Kapur. “The thought behind My Yellow Table Season II will definitely remain the same that is to bring out the Chef in everyone. The focus is to create Indian food with a twist in ingredients with a hope to convince viewers that cooking is not rocket science and everything that tastes good doesn’t have to be complex.”  The chef also promises the show to be fun for the viewers and will share his recipes and tips along with a surprise element the “Mischief Box”.

The show will feature Indian cuisine with a Kunal touch – meaning a lot of flamboyance and experimentation!

This one is to watch out for Tune into Season II of My Yellow Table – By Invitation starting 9th January, Saturday and Sunday, 9 pm only on NDTV Good Times.

 

This is a listing, unfortunately couldn’t make it for the launch as was down with a viral.
