His show is called Twist of Taste with Vineet Bhatia, as the name suggests, its all about the unusual combination and a twist to the routine dishes that we have. In this show, he is accompanied by his wife Rashima Bhatia who is so very fond of giving him new challenges. She always manages to take one unique (not so very commonly used) ingredient during the show and challenges Vineet to modify the dish using that ingredient.
