Lost Recipes is all about the food which is diffused into the pages of history and the rediscovery of a tradition that once was. 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.
Chef Aditya Bal is in pursuit of the forgotten recipes from different parts of India that are now lost to the annals of time. These age-old dishes that have escaped popular records and memory, still live on in select kitchens, often in their original form. Crafted with local ingredients and a uniquely Indian sense of flavour, these recipes are the secrets to delicious food, even if they are little-known.
Aditya Bal travels across the country to put the spotlight on these culinary traditions, cooking methods, and recipes that have been long forgotten.
