Competition ~ cook with Atul Kochhar in Benares.
Gary has been working hard cooking with very talented Indian chefs. Gary has been cooking with the help and advice of Indian chefs but you can see his approach and cooking instinct coming to the fore as well. India its cuisine and culture are vibrantly brought to our tv screens. Each programme sees a different Indian chef that assist Gary by guiding him through the prepararion of the spices and the cooking process. It puts Gary under some stress, but he copes with this well, in spite of the heat and I think he does so well. A true talent in the cooking world!!
