Foodistan will pit Indian and Pakistan chefs against each other to determine, once and for all, which country makes the Indian food, according to the BBC.

A reality show slated for India's NDTV Good Times channel -- no relation to Jimmy Walker -- Foodistan will be an "epic battle" between armies of eight chefs from each country.  According to one of the hosts:

"It's an India-Pakistan show, so there was crazy competition, but there was also a crazy kind of brotherhood. There was great rivalry, but at the end of the day we are also brothers."

So, no knives in the back, then? Armies of chefs really ARE different from Army Chiefs, aren't they, Mr. Zardari?
