With 1.2 million subscribers on YouTube, Trevor James is a popular presenter on food from all around the world.

But even he couldn't believe his eyes after going to the kitchen at the Golden Temple (Harmandir Sahib) in Amritsar, Punjab.

"In Punjab, you can enjoy Indian street food and go on a street food adventure, but in the Golden Temple in Amritsar, you can enjoy an amazing Indian food experience in the worlds largest mega kitchen. It is the BIGGEST kitchen in the world," he says.

He goes behind the scenes where the dhall and the rotis are being made and cannot believe his eyes and the scale of the operation.

The Golden Temple serves food to over 50,000 people every day, rising up over 100,000 people on special occasions.

There are two huge dining halls at the Golden Temple, with a combined capacity of around 5000 people. Every day, a ridiculous amount of wheat, lentils, milk and rice are needed to cook the food. And most of it is done by volunteers.

As James Cook goes behind the scenes, he is constantly amazed by what he sees, especially by the quantity of dhaal being cooked.

The video is amusing for his reactions, but also an informative look at one of the biggest mega-kitchens in the world.

And certainly the only one free and open to everyone.
