Very few Indians have got the honour of sharing the dining table with the most powerful couple in the world – Barack and Michelle Obama, especially on United States’ first lady’s birthday.
Our very own MasterChef India judge, Chef Vikas Khanna, was amongst the select few to attend a dinner party on 17 th Jan 2013, with the US President and his wife on this happy occasion. He came up with the perfect gift to present to Michelle Obama; the first copy of his upcoming book, KhannaSutra. Gifting the book was also a gesture to congratulate the couple on the beginning of Obama's new term as President.
He opines that the couple is the most powerful and global symbol of love across the world. This is well illustrated by their special love story. Michelle was honoured to receive a book and told him that she would definitely try out a few recipes for Valentine’s Day. "First copy of KhanaSutra, to the first couple of the world, especially for Michelle; now how awesome is that?” said an excited Vikas.
The man who started out in his grandmother’s kitchen in Amritsar, and went on to become a world renowned chef in New York, has sure come a long way! Get to know him more on MasterChef India 3, starting 8th March, Monday to Friday at 8 PM.
