LF says 'GIMME CHOCOLATE!' - with Zeba Kohli

Nov 05, 2018

Chocolate replaces coffee as the quintessential accompaniment to conversations. Stirring up more than just conversations is the refreshed LF channel that caters to all things lifestyle. Seeing a space in the market to show viewers the as yet untapped and unspoken about nuances of chocolate LF decided to launch a show that brings out all the aspects of it. The show is hosted by Zeba Kohli – a woman who is synonymous with the very word chocolate and all that it encompasses and who brings the show to life making each guest on the show as comfortable as they would be in their own homes. Tempering interesting conversations and delectable recipes, the show delves deep into the universe of chocolates with Zeba's friends who have struck a chord with everyone whilst they unwrap stories as unique as chocolate itself. 'Gimme Chocolate!' is a game show set to unravel the unexplored types and characteristic of all things chocolate!


Guests sharing anecdotes and participating in the interactive format of the show include Sonakshi Sinha & Diana Penty, Raghu Ram & Rajiv Lakshman, Aahana Kumra & Shikha Talsania, A.D. Singh & Ranjit Barot, Nora Fatehi & Merji and Ranveer Brar & Kubra Sait, amongst others. The ingredients of this show are perfectly fused together by expert chocolatier Zeba Kohli who brings together modernity with heritage as she brings her backing in the chocolate industry. From creating a huge spectrum of innovative flavours to body paints made from chocolate, this is one chocolatier who designs with panache and her social skills lend to a perfectly contented environment that is visible from the very first episode.


Demystifying the world of chocolate, Zeba says “'Gimme Chocolate!' is the epitome of redefining chocolate in the most fun way possible. Symbolising a new beginning with all things sweet, we have modelled the entire show around the world of chocolate. Recreating the fantasy of chocolates in the chocolate den, it is an exhilarating experience to be able to connect with people from all walks of life on a personal level.”


The three segments on the game show inculcate games, live cook-off and playful banter to present the multi-dimensional personality of chocolate and attempts at personifying the food that makes everyone weak in the knees. A cuppa chocolate full of introductions and accomplishments, delve into the lives of our guests as personality traits match with personal selections of chocolate.  A little bit of gambling prodding insightful experiences, three rounds of fantasy dice lend an edge of the couch experience while our version of' Never have I ever' takes centre stage with How the cookie crumbles! Who knew that picking chocolates from a tray could also bend towards fun conversations? The Taste the personality game fuses creativity with fun and of course satiated senses as the guests pick different chocolates from a tray and share who they are reminded of?


Not that chocolate needs a rebirth, but Zeba loves creating new chocolate recipes and offers a 'sweet' challenge to be recreated by her guests. While the celebrities measure out chocolate and set it stirring, viewers watch with awakened taste buds and hit the record button while thinking of the occasion it would be perfectly suited to.


Excited about the show piloting on 9th November, Amit Nair, Business Head, Living Foodz says, “A perfect show to imbibe laughter and life, 'Gimme Chocolate!' is a show that reflects upon our affinity towards the finer things in life and we love how the equation between Zeba, the chocolates and the celebrities is perfectly balanced making the show an easy connect for a large audience”


Unique ingredients, diversely innovative recipes and a bundle of laughs, this show has many cocoa beans that do not fall too far from the cocoa tree! Conversations reaching just the right temperature for an enjoyable watch, the construction of great desserts is about to grip your attention, and of course your taste buds.


The show is sure to make you say – Gimme Chocolate!


California Walnuts is the special partner on the show and Wonderchef is the cookware partner.
