Here & Now 365’s first TV production venture Rajah Wattan Ki Khusboo – Masalon Ka Safar to air on Zee TV
Through the history of authentic South Asian spices, we follow the journey of migrants to the UK by sharing their experiences. Anchored by celebrity chef Manju Malhi the four part series will encompass the life of migrants, the flavours of spices and the taste of home.
Preet Khanna, Account Director and Producer of the show said: “The entire journey of Wattan Ki Khushboo from concept to shoot to post production has been the most amazing so far in the history of whatever we have done at HNN. The story of migration is the basis of our existence as an ethnic specialist communications agency; and to go out in pursuit of understanding amazing facets of the community and the cross-cultural exchange through the medium of spices has been enriching and has added to the knowledge bank at HNN.
Spices are at the heart of South Asian cooking but usually they are taken for granted. This series explores the importance, the value, the history and the celebration of South Asian flavours. From scorching sun in Rajasthan to the cool undergrowths in Kerala, every region has a rich repertoire of spices to offer. And this exploration raised a lot of questions about the many stories of Asian aspiration who initiated the early exchange of cultures.”
