Mumbai – November, 2013: BBC Good Food India celebrates its 2nd anniversary with a culinary coup. The superlative collector’s edition showcases 25 culinary masters from across the world and their delicious dishes. It pays tribute to five heritage cafes around the country and puts together cracking good festive recipe ideas for Diwali, too!
“Being the first, being the pioneers always has attendant risks. But we believed that the Indian food market was at a cusp and it was ready to boom. We wanted to be part of this excitement and contribute to it. It meant a lot of investment from our side including having a dedicated kitchen and studio for the magazine. Two years later, as we celebrate BBC Good Food magazine’s second anniversary, we know got it right” says Tarun Rai, CEO, Worldwide Media.
On the issue launch, editor Sona Bahadur says, “Imagine a food world without frontiers, a magical place where the greatest culinary minds can all be accessed at once. We’ve made this impossibly ambitious idea a reality on the pages of BBC Good Food India’s 2nd Anniversary special. Never attempted before by any other food media in the world, this border-busting collector’s edition brings together 25 of the planet’s biggest culinary forces and their best dishes in a single issue. Think of it as the ultimate birthday banquet, a worldwide feast with the most brilliant conversation and the choicest dishes ever.”
BBC Good Food India’s 2nd anniversary cover story showcases 25 culinary icons who have changed the way we eat and think about food.
