New Delhi, May 05, 2015: Get ready to witness a culinary battle of epic proportions in the new season of TLC’s THE TASTE. The competition gets hotter as Chef Marcus Samuelsson joins Nigella Lawson, Anthony Bourdain and Ludo Lefebvre at the judging table to select Britain’s best cook.
THE TASTE will premiere on Monday, May 11th and will air every Monday-Tuesday at 9 PM on TLC.
The four culinary superstars and THE TASTE mentors will each coach a team of four competing pro and amateur cooks chosen from a casting call, as they vie to create the best tasting dish in a state of the art kitchen. Each week the groups will face team and individual challenges with a variety of culinary themes through several elimination rounds.
At the end of each episode of THE TASTE, the mentors will have to judge the competitors’ dishes blindfolded, with no knowledge of whose creation they’re sampling, what they’re eating, how it was prepared or whom they could be sending home.
Rahul Johri, Executive Vice President and General Manager – South Asia & South East Asia, Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific said, “THE TASTE combines the best of cuisine and reality television featuring four world-renowned celebrity chefs to bring the ultimate culinary challenge to our viewers.”
Watch the culinary superstars of tomorrow compete for the ultimate title. One blind spoonful is all it will take to win the judges over with ‘THE TASTE’ on TLC.
Celebrity chefs in India are excited about the series and have picked their favourites:

Both of them are extremely successful and acclaimed in the international culinary field and bring their years of experience and expertise to help mentor their respective teams and give a tough competition. This one is to watch out for!”
Ritu Dalmia, celebrity chef and co-owner of DIVA in New Delhi said “I am very partial to Nigella! Even though I love the way Anthony writes, and books on his food journeys, when it comes to food I find Nigella a lot more appealing. So, I will be rooting for Team Nigella!”
