Having been a long time fan, and counting chefs as celebrity in my world, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to shake his hand and have a chat. Amongst some favorite friends that I have met throughout my times shooting in the food and restaurant industry, I also had the privilege of trying some of Chef Vij’s new packaged meals – “not to be mistaken for TV dinners”, as he says. Believe me. No worries there. They were fantastic.
And of course I couldn’t leave without a signed copy of the ‘Vij’s At Home’ cookbook, which I cannot wait to crack open and read like a novel.
Thank you London Chef! For bringing folks such as Vikram to Victoria, and for inviting me along to the event. And thank you Vikram! For bringing amazing Indian food and your brightest self right into our kitchens.
