The duo cook 12 lip-smacking, delightfully rich cheesy dishes with Britannia Cheese.
The dramatic rise in- home cooking since the outbreak of the pandemic, was the key trend that informed the making of the show. Cooking has become a recreational activity, and whole families are cooking together and enjoying the time spent with one another. And as per consumer surveys, this is a trend that's here to stay. Britannia Cheese picked on this insight and curated recipes which cover a broad spectrum of consumption moments, with the central ingredient being cheese.

Sharing his perspective on the initiative, Mr. Gunjan Shah, Chief Commercial Officer, Britannia Industries said, "The lockdown propelled many consumers towards in-home consumption and to experiment with cooking food. This led to growth across food categories with cheese being a huge beneficiary of this trend. Britannia prides itself on building superior products and its cheese, made with the goodness of cow's milk, has a distinct yellow colour & a rich cheesy taste which is loved by its loyal consumers. Cheese has been the fastest-growing category in Britannia in the last quarter. As we continue to strengthen our position, our aim is to effectively connect with the consumers' passion for cooking and provide cooking content in turn with today's in-home reality. Britannia Cheese StarChef will not only entertain but also encourage consumers to continue cooking and experimenting at home with the best cheese."
