During the summer of 2016, the #ANOKHI13 Awards took place when I had the opportunity to chat with Canada’s most well-known Indian chef Vikram Vij. We started our conversation about him recounting flirting with me the first time we met lolol (and no, I’m not special, Vikram LOVES women in general) and he explained his philosophy of life that he applies to food, women, and philanthropy.
Other than his renowned portfolio of restaurants and retail products, he is involved with a number of philanthropic organizations including the University of British Columbia Farm Fundraisers and The Green Table Society. Vij has also funded and opened Vij’s Kitchen, a state of the art culinary learning facility at the University of British Columbia.
His culinary and business expertise along with his boisterous personality landed him a guest judge spot on Top Chef Canada and as a Dragon in Canada’s leading business reality show, CBC’s Dragons’ Den.
This was my 6th interview from that time and one that I loved ding due to the no filter persona of this incredibly talented man . . .
