An Indian celebrity chef, restaurateur, author and television personality, Chef Shipra Khanna is a success story like no other. Known for her presence in various reality shows, Shipra has paved her way from a home chef to a celebrity chef. She was honored with the title of ‘Culinary Connoisseur’ for Tourism Australia and Cox & Kings and has also won the title of “Women Chef taking taste beyond borders” by SAARC Chamber Women Entrepreneurs Council (SCWEC). Her journey has been phenomenal from being a contestant on a reality show to being a host and judge on Zee Café’s Chef Vs. Fridge.
Hailing from the queen of hills, Shimla, Shipra’s love for cooking began right from the young age of nine and has been growing ever since. Talking about her journey with food, Shipra Khanna shares, “I developed my interest in cooking during childhood and made my own set of mistakes. When I was 9, one day, I tried cooking pulav for my family. But it was an absolute disaster (Laughs). I learnt my lesson and the next dish I prepared was a yummy curry that my mom guided me through and what a marvel it was! Since then, there has been no looking back. From, winning a reality show to judging Chef Vs. Fridge, it has been a humbling journey and I hope to inspire many young chefs to live their culinary dream.”
Zee Café’s Chef Vs Fridge sees two seasoned chefs competing against each other while also facing the challenges being thrown at them by the fridge- the boss chiller and the expert judges. The audience would surely be at the edge of their seats seeing the contestants struggle with bizarre ingredients like Cactus, banana peels and more to create their exotic presentation while also using the device (YOTD) chosen by judges.
Watch Chef Vs Fridge every Sunday at 8PM on Zee Café
