The upcoming season of cooking-reality show ‘MasterChef India’ will celebrate the rich Indian heritage of vegetarian food.
Celebrity chef Sanjeev Kapoor, who is also one of the judges of the show, said the idea behind bidding adieu to the non-vegetarian food items in this season is to give a chance to vegetarian cooking enthusiasts.
“This season is extremely special as ‘MasterChef India-4′ will be vegetarian. India has a rich heritage of vegetarian food which has not been celebrated so far.
“This current season will give a chance to the vegetarian cooking enthusiasts who have not been able to participate in the last three seasons because they do not cook non-vegetarian food. This season will give a chance to both vegetarians and non-vegetarians to come and display their vegetarian cooking marvels,” Kapoor said in a statement.
The Star Plus’ culinary show is an adaptation of ‘British ‘MasterChef’. The other two judges of the upcoming season are yet to be announced.
