Reality TV show MasterChef India will film clips for its upcoming fourth series in Dubai this week, with around 12 locations, such as the Atlantis hotel and Dubai Creek set to be showcased in the show, it was reported.
"We plan to introduce the flavours of Middle East and their local delicacies through the show. We have a conception that people in Dubai are hardcore meat eaters, but they have a very rich vegetarian cuisine too," celebrity chef Vikas Khanna, who is a judge on the show, told the Indo-Asian News Service (IANS).
Filming will start on Wednesday, March 4, with the team spending four days in emirate. A total of around 12 locations will feature in the show, including the iconic Atlantis hotel on Palm Jumeirah and Dubai Creek.
"We plan to explore a major Indian destination from the food point of view. Dubai is like a melting pot like India right now. Dubai has become very international centric, while retaining the essence of Middle East. I have just opened a restaurant in Middle East and the diversity of food is very large," Khanna said.
"Dubai will provide exposure to the contestants," he added.
