India is a land of food, where every family, friend or colleague eats food that is prepared in a different method. While some homemakers struggle with the daily dilemma of ‘aaj khaane mein kya banau’ on the other side there are aspiring chefs who are in search of the perfect recipe.

With the objective of helping all home cooks, Big Bazaar started India’s first live digital cooking classes Cook Along on Big Bazaar Food YouTube channel.
