This month I’ve had the pleasure of lunching with not one, but two prominent personalities from the world of Indian fine dining! I┬ámet Chef Kunal Kapur for a second time at Patiala (Downtown Dubai), and got introduced to Michelin Star Chef Vikas Khanna at Junoon (Shangri-La, Dubai).

It has been an absolute honor lunching with these big names in the Indian culinary industry, and getting to know about their phenomenal career growth and enticing dishes firsthand.

After the pre-launch press lunch at Vida Downtown I was fortunate enough to be invited to last week (read all about it here), I was super excited about attending the BBC Food Food Show’s very first stint in the World Trade Center this weekend.

It was a 3-day affair running from 17th to 19th December, and this was a hall full of delights for serious UAE foodies (shopping, tasting and inspirations from world renowned chefs!).
