TV chefs from India and Pakistan compete on Foodistan

A new English language reality TV show called 'Foodistan' is to pit the skills of chefs from both India and Pakistan on NDTV Good Times from 23 January.

The cookery show will have eight top chefs from each country competing against each other and preparing winning recipes from Pakistan and India. To avoid cultural issues, the contestants will not cook either pork or beef.

"We are absolutely thrilled to announce 'Foodistan', the biggest food show on Indian television. Food as a genre is very close to the DNA of our channel and we are committed to taking it to the next level with 'Foodistan'," said Atul Seth, vice president, development, NDTV Lifestyle.

"India and Pakistan are two nations who share a common passion for good food. And this love of food is something that binds the two nations despite the many differences, which is why 'Foodistan' will appeal to our viewers."

The judging panel comprises British chef Merrilees Parker, Pakistani-French actress Sonya Jehan, and Indian journalist and restaurant critic Vir Sanghvi.

In Pakistan the programme will air on Geo TV.
