I think Chef Vikas Khanna is one of the sweetest people I have ever met! When I first met him – prior to his rise to fame on Master Chef India and all the hottest chef of NYC wins – he had just started cooking at Junoon. I was eating there with a friend and he came out and spoke with us in his, then, quiet and shy manner. What a change success can bring – I met him again this after and was thrilled to see the gracious chef laughing and chatting and not quite so shy anymore. What really touched me most was his love of his family, his roots and his heritage. While he is feeding the who’s who of this world (from presidents to movie stars), his heart and his passion, I feel, lies in feeding everyday folks! He loves to cook and it shows!
