Chef Sanjeev Kpoor said, “I must admit, with each passing day it gets better and hope also increases. I think these are good signs. I won’t say it has been a piece of cake, but it is much better than what we first heard of it. I have to say it is much better than what I first though it to be,” when asking about his lockdown.
Continuing about how the lockdown and coronavirus have affected his life and what he has been up to, Chef Kapoor said, “We have no business. We have seventy restaurants worldwide and they are all shut. We have a cookware company, ‘Wonderchef’ that is also shut. We have a television channel, Food Food, that is up and running, a YouTube channel, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, we are creating content and they are all up and running. There is work that is happening, there are certain projects that I’m working on. I am doing a lot of thinking.”
