At this event, award-winning chef and bestselling author Vikas Khanna will sign copies of his new book Indian Harvest: Classic and Contemporary Vegetarian Dishes

One of Vikas Khanna's favorite places in the world growing up was the garden he and his grandmother planted at their home in Amritsar, India. He would rush home from school to tend to the aromatic basil and cardamom, tomatoes, peas, and squash. His intimate knowledge of spices and produce would guide him on his journey to become the Michelin-starred chef at one of New York's most highly regarded Indian restaurants, Junoon. And this knowledge of nature's bounty and its seasons informs his inspiring and beautiful cookbook, in which vegetables are the star ingredients. Vegetables have always been integral to Indian cuisine, and Khanna's dishes expertly showcase their natural goodness, their flavor and color and hidden nuances.

Vikas Khanna was born and raised in Amritsar, India, and studied at the Culinary Institute of America and Le Cordon Bleu. He is the host of MasterChef India and has been a guest chef on The Martha Stewart Show, a consultant chef on Kitchen Nightmares, and a judge on Throwdown! with Bobby Flay and Hell's Kitchen. He was a 2014 finalist for the James Beard Book Award for his book Return to the Rivers, and his Flatiron restaurant, Junoon, has been awarded a Michelin star. 

"Vikas Khanna is one such chef whose distinctive combination of ingredients and techniques creates dishes which reflect his passion for purity and a commitment to his roots."---Deepak Chopra

"There's no better place in town for classical Indian cooking."---Adam Platt, New York Magazine on Junoon; Named one of Ten Best New Restaurants of 2011, and one of The Platt 101: NYC's Best Restaurants
