'Some people eat to live, I live to eat'


Television actor Yash Sinha might have received recognition and fame through his work, but his first love is not acting.

Yash, who is currently playing the role of Bablu Singh in Afsar Bitiya, reveals that it is food that occupies the biggest space in his heart. The actor says that for him eating is not just a daily activity to fill stomach, but much more than that.

“I am a complete foodie. Some people eat to live, I live to eat. I am a hardcore non-vegetarian but can eat anything that is edible and tastes good. Though North Indian cuisine tops my priority list, what I appreciate most are the local specialties that every place has to offer. Whenever I go to a new place, I chat with locals, take their recommendation and make sure I don’t leave the place before sampling their local fare.

Till date I have never been disappointed,” says the actor, known for his roles in Bhagyavidhaata, Teen Bahuraaniyaan and Har Ghar Kuch Kehta Hai.

The actor doesn’t just like to gorge on delicacies, he cooks with equal passion. Yash is always on the lookout for the best restaurants in town and replicates the taste of a dish he has liked at any eatery. It is his favourite hobby. The actor considers cooking very therapeutic. For him, It is not only a hobby but also a stress buster.

Yash says that his love for food and cooking is hereditary. “My grandmother was an excellent cook and my father is a big foodie. Since childhood I have been experimenting with different herbs, spices and cold cuts. I am a specialist in cooking different dishes of mutton but I also seek out new ways to carry on tradition, by cooking recipes passed down from my grandparents and father,” he shares.

Yash, who has so far appeared in television shows dominated by women, wants to experiment with other genres. He now wants to take his passion for food and cooking a step further by anchoring a food show. “Cooking is therapeutic for me. It is not just a hobby. It is a stress buster! So, I want to do two things. Firstly I want to anchor a food show and secondly I want to open an unusual theme-based restaurant,” concludes Yash.
