'MasterChef' winner to host cookery show

New Delhi Lucknow-based Pankaj Bhadouria, winner of Star Plus's cookery show "MasterChef India", will now host her programme titled "Chef Pankaj Ka Zayka". The cookery show, which begins Sep 12 on Star Plus, will see Bhadouria helping housewives with kitchen queries. She will not only solve cooking problems, but will also make the task easier for them. In the show, she will visit some well-known kitchens in the country, interacting with top chefs and trying out their food. Bhadouria will also be seen encouraging viewers to be part of the process rather than to sit back and take notes. Each episode will have a unique theme, which will see her rubbing shoulders with various celebrities, chefs and the viewers. Bhadouria took home Rs.1 crore as prize money after winning "MasterChef India" last year.
