MUMBAI: Dreams that once began in the kitchen are all set to take off! This July, Nestle and ZEE pay an ode to women who have emerged from bread makers to bread earners, leveraging their passion for food on the show ‘Maggi Kitchen Journeys’, a show that will soon premiere on Zee TV at 6:30 PM on Saturday, 14th July and on Living Foodz at 1:30 PM on Monday, 16th July. It all started with Nestle’s insight that cooking is an inherent but undervalued talent in our country. But, there are women who are using their cooking skills to make a difference. The ZEE Network arrived at a unique creative solution that establishes how through cooking, women have been taking charge of their destinies and realizing their dreams, bagging Nestle’s competitive, multi-channel pitch for the show.
Maggi Kitchen Journeys brings forth 12 heart-warming, motivating chronicles of women who have established their own unique identity, empowered themselves and their families, using food as a medium. These women have all applied their cooking skills creatively in various ways, right from starting their own tiffin service to being a ‘foodpreneur’ to using their talent for rewarding causes such as social upliftment. The guests share their awe-inspiring success stories in a free-wheeling conversation with the show’s host, actress Renuka Shahane, who with her warmth and maturity will get them to open up and share it all candidly. ‘Maggi Kitchen Journeys’ aims to fuel the ambition of women across the country and motivate them to carve an identity for themselves in society.
The host, Renuka Shahane said, “Maggi Kitchen Journeys’ presents motivational stories of women who have braved difficult situations and are a role model to other women today. It’s heartening to interact with them and get a first-hand account of their journey. We hope that our viewers take a leaf out of their book and pursue their dreams”.
The guests on the show will present their signature recipes alongside Renuka and will be included in the Maggi Diaries Community.
