For the Kapoor’s, food has always been a passion! It's that one element that brings us all together and like most families is a focal point for any special occasion. Good food is something that should bring you joy in just the experience of it and for me, my go-to has always been Italian, especially since it was the one thing I craved the most during my pregnancy. I was so happy to be a part of Star vs Food because it actually gave me the opportunity to perfect the art of making a pizza! which is an absolute crowd-pleaser at home and I can’t wait to recreate it home.

On the premiere of the show, Director Karan Johar said,

Food is such an important aspect of our lives. We all have good memories of meals shared with friends and family and there is always that one person in your family or group of friends who’s a great cook and who loves to feed everyone. I wasn’t that person and was never very keen to cook but all of that changed when my babies started to grow up. I found discovery+ ’s ‘Star vs Food’ as such an exciting experience. Cooking under the guidance of a pro like Chef Lakhan was a real eye opener and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. I have a long way to go, but thanks to this experience, I think I might find myself in the kitchen more often!

On this latest tryst in the kitchen with discovery+, Arjun Kapoor said,

I’m a self-confessed foodie at heart and while nothing can top the food my daadi cooks, I do have some close seconds. Us Kapoor’s really do know our food but eating it and cooking it are two very different things, and boy! did my experience on the show teach me just that. I now have a newfound respect for the many food geniuses and my very own home chefs whose skill and patience have been behind some of my most favorite food memories. Special thanks go to Gulaam Gouse Deewani who taught me a thing or two about cooking.

Malaika Arora on her experience on ‘Star vs Food’, said,

Everyone knows that I’m all about clean eating and being mindful about the food we use to nourish our bodies, but when I think about the ultimate dish that is nostalgic, comforting and just all-around delicious there’s nothing like a wholesome meal of fish and rice. Cooking was something I learned for my son, who set me on the challenge when he was in school to make him home-cooked meals and now I’m excited I get to sharpen those skills further with a few more tricks of the trade from one of my favourite chefs, Prateek Sadhu. Star vs Food brought together all my favorite things - spending time with your loved ones, raiding someone’s kitchen and of course delicious food!

- Malaika Arora

Elaborating on his experience on the show, Pratik Gandhi said,

As an actor, my schedule rarely permits me the time to pick and prepare a meal for myself or my family. My wife is my ultimate chef who always remembers my favorites and tries to give me a dose of home-cooked goodness every now and then. So when the opportunity came my way, to treat her to an extravagant food experience, prepared by me under the tutelage of one of Mumbai’s culinary masterminds, how could I pass that up!

- Pratik Gandhi
