After a rigorous national search with hundreds of applicants, the consulting panel along with producers of the show have chosen the winner. Congratulations  to Kunal Lamba for being chosen as the Foodie/Host for the first season of the show. Look out for him in your home soon!


Some people have being a “foodie” in their DNA and Kunal is no exception to that.

Born to a New Delhi family with roots in restaurant business in India, Kunal included culinary in his higher studies as he is a graduate in hotel management from Welcomgroup School in Manipal, India.

Surprisingly, Kunal has never been a chef. He recalls how he was told by his mentor “though you have great appreciation for food you should not spend your life within 4 white tiled walls of a hotel/restaurant kitchen as you talk a lot”.

Indeed Kunal took that advice but still has been in food business in three continents starting his career with ITC Maurya Hotel in New Delhi as a restaurant manager, moving to London and finally making New York City his home for good (“still you never know”he says)

In NYC Kunal has been the most visible and charming General Managers of an Indian restaurant group called Devi where he flaunts his hospitality and culinary flair with utmost grace.

With his gift of the gab, his wit, a gregarious personality and great proven food acumen he has rightly won our national “foodie” hunt for Kawan Kitchen Mate.
