The last time you ate at a restaurant/eatery, you sure did enjoy the taste and aroma of the food. But have you ever put aside the plate and wondered who has made this delicious meal for me? Who worked this hard and cooked so beautifully?

There are many places like Dharamasthala, Annapoorna, Shirdi Prasadalaya Kitchen, Taj stats kitchen, Akshaya Patra and IRCTC Kitchen, where every day tonnes of food is prepared in large quantities by just few people.

You might have some idea about how much effort it takes to prepare a meal for a family of four. It isn’t hard to imagine the enormous amount of effort that goes into preparing food for nearly 6 lakh people every day by on-board pantry cars or for 1.4 million school children every day by Akshaya Patra in hot and humid conditions. We think about service, ambience, hospitality and rate every restaurant only on those parameters. In general, we are over-looking the spinal cord of these eateries.

There are people behind the walls of the AC vent who wake up every morning to make sure you receive enough to feed yourself. And we don’t only speak about top notch chefs, we speak for the boy who cuts the vegetables, the woman who stirs the soup, the big lot responsible for cooking and preparing. National Geographic is coming up with a series “India’s Mega Kitchens” to highlight the hard work and dedication that goes behind these kitchens and celebrate their spirit.

National Geographic is coming up with a series “India’s Mega Kitchens”, premiering at 10 pm, tonight to highlight the hard work and dedication that goes behind these kitchens and celebrate their spirit.

Hats off to everyone who works this hard for ensuring others’ satisfaction. Enjoy the show!
