Chef Vikas on Kitchen Nightmares!!
caption: AND he can cook, ladies!
So, there I am watching my newest favorite TV show, Gordon Ramsay's "Kitchen Nightmares" on Fox, and enojying the HELL out of it.
THIS week's nightmare was "Dillions Lounge" in Times Square, NYC. The place was a self-described "Irish, American, Indian Restuarant" with LITERALLY rotton food, rats, and more roaches than I've ever seen in my life (and trust me, I've lived in some LOUSY apartments). I was half-expecting Gordon to up and leave them. PLUS, I thought to myself, what does Gordon Ramsay know about modern Indian cuisine?
It turns out, what he DOES know is iFood's own CHEF VIKAS KHANNA!!!
Chef Vikas was invited to Dillions by Gordon Ramsay to help whip their food into shape. And boy, DID HE. In an earlier blog, I talked about my fantasy of having a culinary threesome with Gordon Ramsay and Bobby Flay. Screw Bobby (sorry Bobby!), but now it's all about GORDON and VIKAS!!
If you get the chance to see it on rerun, you get to see an Indian cuisine master in action. Vikas knows what he's doing, and the newly named "Purnima" even hired him as a consultant!
Great to see you on TV Vikas! Now, when are you inviting me over for dinner (Mike, my fiance, can come too... or stay home, come to think of it!)
