A culinary battle has begun

The Taste at TLC
(L-R) Anthony Bourdain, Nigella Lawson, Marcus Samuelsson & Ludo Lefefbvre

Giving pace to Season 2 of The Taste for finding the best British cook, the four superstars of the show— bestselling author and multiple-Emmy winning television personality Anthony Bourdain, British food star Nigella Lawson, Los Angeles’s influential chef Ludo Lefebvre and Swedish chef of Ethiopian origin Chef Marcus Samuelsson–were in India recently. They introduced the programme in a fun-filled evening to Indian foodies at Olive Bar & Kitchen, Mehrauli, Delhi. The foodies judged the food preparations blindfolded.

The Taste will air every Monday-Tuesday at 9 pm. The four culinary superstars and THE TASTE mentors will coach a team of four competing pro and amateur cooks chosen from a casting call, as they vie to create the best tasting dish in a state-of-the-art kitchen.
