Dec 06, 2017

Living Foodz has a reason to celebrate yet again! India's leading premium lifestyle channel Living Foodz has recently won the coveted 'The Best Talk Show' award at The Asian Television Awards, one of the highly acclaimed awards of the Asian television industry. The event was held on December 1 at the Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre. Other nominations in the category included 'The NDTV Dialogues with Dalai Lama', 'Talk to Al Jazeera in the Field: ISIL Slept on Our Home', 'Talk Asia: Annie Leibovitz' and the popular gossip-talk show, 'Koffee With Karan Season 5'. Produced by BBC Worldwide India, 'Taste Match' recounted the glorious days of acclaimed Indian sportsmen.

Commenting on the win, Mr. Amit Nair, Business Head, Living Foodz, said, “We are extremely delighted to receive this recognition from The Asian Television Awards. Cricket is not just a sport, but an undying and inseparable emotion. We attempted to present a show which amalgamated two elements that fans across India connect with strongly: Food and Cricket! It is a testament to the incredible talent, hard work and commitment of our team. We thank each and everyone who contributed to this success.”

'Taste Match', hosted by legendary cricketer and the former BCCI Chairman of Selectors, Sandeep Patil, was simulcast on Living Foodz and &TV in April 2017. This show marked his television debut, where he was seen bonding with his guests over scrumptious meals that he personally prepared for them.

Launched in September 2015, Living Foodz continues to bring more excitement to its viewers, integrating the best of food, travel and lifestyle, and raising the bar for entertainment in India.
