Adding another feather to his cap, celebrity chef Vikas Khanna has made his way to the Gazette Review’s list of World’s Top 10 chefs. Khanna has brought many laurels to the country and has always made India proud. While Gordon Ramsay is leading in the Gazette Review's list, Khanna bagged the 6th position, ahead of well-known chefs like Anthony Bourdain and Alain Ducasse.
There were many chefs throughout the world who stood up for this list, but so far Vikas is the only chef who received such a huge international acclamation. Here is the list of chefs who made it as the Top 10 Chefs in the World.
1. Gordon Ramsay
2. Jamie Oliver
3. Wolfgang Puck
4. Heston Blumenthal
5. Marco Pierre White
6. Vikas Khanna
7. Emeril Lagasse
8. Alain Ducasse
9. Paul Bocuse
10. Anthony Bourdain
Earlier, Vikas auctioned his much renowned 1,200-page book "Utsav - A Culinary Epic" for Rs 30 lakhs.
The book was created over a span of 12 years with a minuscule research in the history of our rich Indian cuisine. Only 12, specially handcrafted gold-gilded, hand-painted books were made which Khanna personally gifted it to famous people including Queen Elizabeth
He wished to present the book to Apple founder Steve Jobs but unfortunately, he passed away before that could happen.
Though he has been listed 6th in the position, for us he still remains the best, who has beautifully painted the Indian Cuisine on the World Map
