Look ma, I’m on TV

To all the fans of my gourmet cooking, you get to see me in the flesh, cooking drunken seafood (I hope they use that clip) on TV.
My restaurant and I will be featured in a segment on Bangalore restaurants. It will air today (04 May 2005) on Zee Business at 5 PM (or thereabouts) and again at 8 PM. So please don’t miss it. I will also try to record the clip and put it up here for the world to see.
The segment is in Hindi, and I apologise in advance for fumbling a bit in my interview. While I speak Hindi quite well (grew up in Delhi, after all), my oratorial skills in the language died after school, which was 15 years ago. I had mentally prepared for an English Q&A, and had to quickly rework it in my head. But the food is all real. :)
Update: Well, that was a quick one. They left out all the interviews so you won’t see me speak, but you will see me smile and cook. (Since I don’t smile at all, that part was very hard to shoot.) I’ve contacted a news monitoring service about recording the clip so I can put it online. It should be up in a few days, and by few I mean at least four.

    So you are one of the three IT-geeks turned chefs of Bangalore. And you have a blog too !!!
    Wonderful indeed. Congratulations on the success and wishing you all the very best in your endeavours.
    It is good to see someone (if not myself) follow their dreams and be happy doing it.

    Madhu,
    Is this the same thing that went on the other day when I was there?…if so am I there ;)

  9. MadMan says:

    Yes, Nilu, it’s the same one. You are there in passing. There’s a shot of your friend enjoying his chicken satay, however. :)

    Madman, did the journos pay for their meal?

  13. MadMan says:

    They didn’t have anything to eat. They just filmed the place and talked to guests.

  14. Tushar Tyagi says:

    Congrats…
    I saw the show, and later came to know, that it was yours.
    Let me tell you, food is really nice. I have asked my friends as well, to visit there once… I am sure, they will become regular on their own. :-)

  15. Aditya says:

    Probably a lot of people must have told you this by now, but You’ve got a very good blog going.. Came by through Anita Bora’s blog and I read quite a few of your posts. Liked the Indya.com article too. :)

  16. Aditya says:

    liked one of your comments on the blog meet, so hopped by to say hi. and maybe take it further a little while later… but that’s neither now nor here.
    will be back, though…

  18. rollerr says:

    having seen your restaurant website, not one person who is remotely connected to bangalore escapes my very persuasive recommendations (or they wake up the next morning saying good morning to a horse’s head!). And extremely eager to get a chance to sample Shiok myself!!!!;-)
    Would be great to see the clip on the site. Looking forward to it.
    Thanks.
