Chef, writer, TV show host, filmmaker, Vikas Khanna’s innate humility and limitless passion for his craft took him from catering at a tiny town in India to running a fine dining restaurant in New York. He went beyond the stereotypical Indian cuisine the western world was accustomed to and recreated Indian tastes using Western techniques. The New York outpost of Junoon won its first Michelin star merely 10 months after its launch; the first of the five consecutive ones that it has earned to date. Khanna has to his credit over 23 cookbooks, numerous TV shows including Masterchef India, for which he was a judge, and having cooked for the Obamas, the Dalai Lama and many more well-known personalities.
