The Royal Palate is an extension of experiences, where we explore long lost royal recipes that hail from different parts of the country, in an attempt to keep them alive. Feverish virality helps take these stories to the right audiences and build conversations around strong content, one of the strongest reasons we associated with The Viral Fever.”

Discovering new foods and cuisines is one of the key delights for the Instagram generation and The Royal Palate intends to help millennials discover food while taking them on a royal smorgasbord of delicacies.

Rahul Sarangi, Global Head – Content and Business, The Viral Fever, said, “Part-travelogue, part-culinary showcase, Royal Palate is an innovative series that seamlessly weaves anecdotes, influencers, interviews with royal families and food. The association with Behrouz Biryani was a perfect fit to add to this royal journey. We had been toying with new ideas and ways to connect with our discerning audience and our focus this year is going to be on exploring creative genres and formats. With this delightful new offering, we are hoping to reach newer audiences while engaging our existing viewer base.”

The last national digital campaign Behrouz Biryani ran reached helped the brand quadruple their awareness, tripling new customers, transactions and revenue for the INR 150+ crore brand.
