Chef Vikas Khanna Opens India’s First Culinary Art Museum

Would you too agree if we say India is a land of museums? If you explore, you will find different types of museums all across the country – for instance, Indian Museum and Nehru Children’s Museum in Kolkata, National Museum and Art Museum in Delhi, War Museum in Jaisalmer and more. It won’t be an exaggeration to say that we have a dedicated museum for almost every walk of life. Did you know India has its own culinary museum too? Yes, you heard us. Celebrity chef Vikas Khanna, in 2018, inaugurated India’s first culinary art museum in Manipal. Alumni at Welcome group Graduate School of Hotel Administration in Manipal, Chef Vikas thought “there couldn’t be a better home for this museum than” his “beloved college”. The museum also entered the Limca Book of Records. Khanna took to Instagram to pen his heartfelt thoughts behind the museum.
