Geetanjali Advani's YouTube series 'Eat with Geet' tells you how to whip up fusion dishes
Let Mumbai-based Geetanjali Advani's YouTube videos with Ultra Cookery teach you how to make fusion food
I don't know about you, but one thing that gives me relief on a busy day are those aesthetically made Tasty food videos that turn up on my Facebook timeline. Now, add to the list Eat with Geet, the latest series started by YouTube channel Ultra Cookery, which features Geetanjali Advani. Yes, we are talking about the former RJ who also hosts a popular food podcast, Dakaar.
Right frequency: Eat with Geet puts out one video every week
But before you club Eat with Geet with the million other food videos out there, Advani tells us why it's different. "With the kind of exposure we have to international cuisines today, everyone craves for good fusion dishes made at home. This can be achieved by simply tweaking desi recipes," says Advani. Case in point being her recipes for Indian-style sushi, gulab jamun cheesecake, motichoor cupcakes... are you salivating yet? "The point is that though authentic international cuisines are easily available, we still crave for Indianised versions of these dishes and that's what we want to offer," she says. The focus is to use ingredients that are available in the kitchen, which gives Eat with Geet the potential to become popular with both lazy hostel inhabitants and mothers who are hard-pressed for time.
Yum, yum: The number of views her Oreo Mud Pot recipe video has 2,973
It is needless to mention that Eat with Geet is shot with an aesthetic sense that immediately brings on the hunger pangs and Advani too agrees that presentation is key. Speaking about the 'foodie' tag and other food trends, she says, "Almost everyone calls themselves a foodie these days, but the food is so much about eating together and sharing food with others. Also, there is a reason why organic and the home-made food is trending again. Buying ginger garlic paste at the supermarket is very different from making it at home — the taste differs," avers Advani.
