OverviewEdit

The show is an Indian version of the international series Come Dine with Me. Each week a group of six contestants takes turns to act as host, cooking a three-course meal and entertaining the other five. At the end of the evening the guests give an overall score to reflect their enjoyment of the evening. The contestants of the first season of Welcome were Indian celebrities, but in the second season were applicants drawn from the general public.[1] Unlike the original Come Dine With Me, Welcome has an on-screen host - television actor Ram Kapoor - in addition to an off-screen narrator.
