Mon- Fri 8PM

Food has a way of igniting the senses and giving us a deeply satisfying dose of happiness. It never fails to bring people together and fosters family tradition. It is an indicator of cultural identity and fond memories. 

But even the strongest culinary traditions are sometimes no match for the strokes of time. Be it the lack of ingredients that were once very popular and now difficult to procure, to the loss of life-styles in times of societal change, there are some recipes that have been the pre-cursor to the food of today and are in dire need of a resurrection.  

Our host Aditya Bal is on a quest to unearth the once-popular culinary traditions through thirteen regions in India. But these recipes are no longer found in cookbooks, old or new, and seem to have evolved with time. Aditya must turn back the clock and wade through folk and lore to find the original, Lost Recipes. 

Through speaking with locals and experts, he follows the path to the past and uncovers not only the recipe but the fascinating story behind it. These Lost Recipes will be cooked under the same circumstances, keeping the process and the principal intact. 

In a nutshell, Lost Recipes is all about the food which is diffused into the pages of history and the rediscovery of a tradition that once was.
