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, Ms. 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.”
