Talking about the initiative, Suresh Narayanan, Chairman and Managing Director, Nestlé India said, “From our purpose to our products, we have always had culinary expertise at the heart of everything. It is truly inspiring to see people discover their strength, reclaim their lives and make a difference to the society they belong to. MAGGI KITCHEN JOURNEYS is our attempt to celebrate the stories of such women who have soared to great heights by using every day culinary skills to fuel change. Indeed it is inspiring how these women have achieved extraordinary things.”
MAGGI KITCHEN JOURNEYS showcases 12 heart-warming and inspiring stories of women who have established their own unique identity, using food as a medium. These women have all used their culinary skills creatively in various ways and made a difference. The ‘KITCHEN JOURNEYS’ unveil how the women have taken challenging circumstances in their stride and overcome difficult situations to set up something they are passionate about.
Jayanthi Kathale is one of the 12 protagonists who would be featured on the show. She lives and works in Bangalore. Taking about the initiative, Jayanthi Kathale said, “I left my cushy job at Infosys as a project manager, where I worked for over 13 years to follow my passion, that was, to bring Maharashtrian cuisine to the fore in Bangalore. It took me 3 years of travel and research to come up with a business model which could serve Maharashtrian culture and not just food. Getting featured in the show has made me extremely happy and I am willing to put in more hardwork.”
