The fact that Pakistan is a country of food lovers is a foregone conclusion. Our culture is rich with wafting aromas of spices and other ingredients cooked with as much love as it is cooked with precision. The country is replete with dishes that are pride of the given region. So much so that some of the places have become synonymous with the particular dish. Whether it is Pashtun’s famous rice haleem or Lahori Biriyani, each city boasts of its own culinary claim to fame.
It is this love of food in the country that prompted the soft drink major 7Up to embark on a culinary journey across the country and celebrate our passion for food. The four part series has the very charming VJ duo, Anoushey Ashraf and Shazad hosting the show. The show travels across four cities and brings you the most savored dishes of the city. What’s more, they have even managed to rope in a celebrity from each of the city to join the duo in their quest for gastronomical delights.
