Chef Vikas Khanna & MasterChef India
While indulging in a scrumptious meal, our Editor-in-Chief Kamiya Jani asked Vikas Khanna about what he has discovered through ‘MasterChef India’. He replied that when people from small towns come to MasterChef, they bring a piece of India. MasterChef is the centre of the ecosystem of produce. And it has given a platform to cooks to showcase their talent and earn respect.

This platform has also given a spotlight to them (the contestants) and helped their dishes to be known widely. And people want to sell these viral recipes in their restaurants. This includes a chain of businesses from cooking schools, training institutes, different projects and people being interested more in chefs. The very fact that now people compliment the chefs by saying “thanks to the chef!” is a change that he discovered.
His Journey In The NYC
Chef Vikas Khanna is known around the world and Kamiya Jani asked him about his first experience in New York City. He said that his first reaction after landing in the city was that those who scared him are actually scared of him. And he took a firm step of not being scared of people intimidating him.
America is a tough country for coloured people, but to have a stand and talk about Indian cuisine was unheard of. But it was more about pride. For Chef Vikas, standing up again even after life has served you all kinds of failure is the key.
