MasterChef Judge, John Torode visits Sri Harmandir Sahib

John Torode has the best job in the world. Not only does he get to eat for a living, he gets to do it in far-flung locations around the world.

As well as serving as a long-time judge on MasterChef UK, Australian-born, British-based Torode has also made a number of travel shows, where he explores culinary delights of destinations around the world.

In Amritsar he visited Sri Harmandir Sahib, where free meals are provided for up to 100,000 people a day. On Torode’s visit, it was just 60,000. This is what it is reported he said:

“It was probably one of the most enlightening places I’ve been in my life. There’s so many people there being fed on a daily basis for free . . . I cooked a ton of rice in four different pots. It’s astounding numbers but also the fact that it’s all done for absolutely nothing is quite incredible.”
