Have you ever wondered what it would be like to see your favorite celebrities on a cooking show? Well Discovery + kicked off the Star Vs Food season last week featuring Kareena Kapoor Khan, an amazing watch. The new celebrity cooking show features weekly episodes of stars facing the challenge of preparing a meal for loved ones under the supervision of a professional chef.
After Kareena, Karan Johar joins the star group who visits his favorite Japanese restaurant Mizu Izakaya where the chef and restaurant co-owner Lakhan Jethani teaches Johar how to make Katsu Curry and Sushi from scratch. And let’s just say it – if you miss Koffee With Karan and its over-the-top drama, this episode is for you.
THE FEAR OF KARAN JOHAR’S KITCHEN
“You’ve seen me everywhere – literally everywhere as I’m ubiquitous,” Johar says at the start of the episode. “But there is one room you didn’t see me in” – before cutting people’s imaginations and adding: “You didn’t see me in a kitchen. I didn’t see myself in the kitchen. He begins his journey with his special way of chatting with the chef before starting his culinary journey.
KARAN’S BIGGEST DILEMMA – CHOPPING ONIONS
Chef Lakhan begins the task for Katsu Curry by asking Karan to finely chop the onions. But, Karan, who never has, goes into instant panic mode – “I’ve never chopped an onion in my life.” The filmmaker finally learns. Well, later putting some onions in the pot triggers another level of reaction from her.
Well somehow some miss Koffee With Karan while many are happy that it seems to be over for good. But, if you miss Karan’s sneaky comments, you see that pretty much throughout the episode of Star Vs Food. The unnecessary mention of “bed”, “spoon”, and all can be avoided, but then again this is Karan we are talking about. You hear these kinds of “jokes” throughout the episode until the guests arrive.
KARAN MADE A CAKE FOR ROOHI AND YASH
During the episode, Karan mentions that at one point in last year’s pandemic he tried to bake a cake with the help of his people, but it turned out that didn’t work out. is not going as expected. While following the recipe, he forgot to add baking powder. One of his friends had to bake a cake in 2 hours because his children were impatiently awaiting their father’s cooking.
TURMERIC? GARLIC? – THE CHAOS OF KARAN
Chef Lakhan sends him to the pantry to get some fresh turmeric and his first reaction is “GARLIC?” He just sits down after loitering and searching for a while and goes through several levels of emotions as he couldn’t find turmeric.
He learns to prepare his favorite dish which, according to him, requires a lot of effort. Eventually, Chef Lakhan admits that as a student Karan only scores 5/10 because he gets tired easily, but hopes he inspired Johar to finally cook at home.
If you’re in a Japanese restaurant and you don’t even try sushi, what’s the point? The filmmaker gives his first try at rolling sushi and well, the result is decent for sure.
STAR VS FOOD’S STARS – SEEMA KHAN, MRUNAL THAKUR AND SAIYAMI KHER
It all depends on whether Karan’s friends like the food he made or not. And it turns out that they did indeed like the food he made with Chef Lakhan. You see Karan and Seema’s jokes from the start, Saiyami and Mrunal keep him a little balanced and silent in front of them.
FOOD QUIZ? QUIZ KOFFEE?
The episode ends with Karan’s quick quiz for women on the table that has nothing to do with food and everything to do with his brand of gossip.
While the Kareena Kapoor Khan episode yielded a lot of fun moments, the Karan Johar episode essentially seems like he’s going through a roller coaster of emotions just to make a few dishes. Overall, Star Vs Food is a decent watch.
