World Gourmet Summit 2012: Chef Focus, Vikas Khanna

by Eielson Low on April 25, 2012

What happens when you combine the amazingly talented and highly regarded Michelin-starred Masterchef, Vikas Khanna, with the elegance, warm ambience and award winning host restaurant, The Song of India? You get A Week Long Promotion of Epicurean Delights by Masterchef Vikas Khanna!

Editor’s Note: We have something so special and exclusive for you guys, you would kill yourself if you missed it! It’s at the end of this article!

Masterchef Vikas Khanna is a multi award winning chef, receiving such prestigious awards such as The Rising Star Chef Awards by Star Chefs, The Shining Star Award from Just One Break, Inc. previously received by Christopher Reeve and Ray Charles, and even awards not related to culinary arts such as: being voted “New York’s Hottest Chef” in a poll conducted by Eater and being in the list of “India’s 50 Sexiest Men Alive” by People Magazine!


Can you spot Chef Vikas?

Chef Vikas is also quite a philanthropist, he launched the foundation SAKIV (“South Asian Kid’s Infinite Vision”) to focus on worldwide issues that demand urgent action. “Cooking for Life” is an Multi-Award Winning Organization, founded by Vikas Khanna in 2001 in New York with the World’s Top Chefs. In the years that followed, the organization has supported relief efforts around the world including 9/11, Tsunami Relief, Hurricanes of the Gulf Coast, South Asian Earth Quakes, Darfur, and many more. Last but not least, he has a award-winning workshop, Vision of Palate developed to educate people with visual disabilities about the sense of taste, flavor and aromas.

But, I personally believe that his most amazing achievement is to host dinner for the Hindu American Seva Charities Conference held at the White House with United States President Barack Obama. Cooking for the most powerful leader in the world and his guests must be a dream for most chefs worldwide!
