Chef Vikas Khanna among the chefs who put Indians’ gastronomical love case on the world food map, has now made it to the tally of Top 10 Chefs in the World by Gazette Review. From writing Utsav — the most costly cookbook in the world — which was advertised at Rs 30 lakh and gifting the gold-covered 1,200-page defined edition to Queen Elizabeth II to heading Junoon, the Michelin-starred restaurant in New York, the chef has fully a few feathers in his hat already.
The only Indian chef to have made to the tally, Vikas Khanna is a well-known name in the food trade and has won many awards. The Amritsar born Chef took to Facebook to share his joy on being listed. “Humbled to be in 2017 ‘TOP 10 CHEFS IN THE WORLD’ – Thank you Gazette Review”— he posted, along with a photo of his burnished face, doing what he is best known for — cooking his way into our soul. Established out of New York, he made it to the list of People magazine’s Sexiest Men Alive in 2011, which also called him “The Hottest Chef of America”.
