Cookbooks have never been considered a part of “literature” but now times have changed and so have the avatars of cookbooks, says Masterchef Vikas Khanna.
“Chefs were never referred to as icons of culture earlier but now they are. Food is an important part of culture and now our literature as well. A chef being here is an example of it,” he said on the sidelines of ongoing Jaipur Literature Festival.
The Michelin star chef believes, it has been difficult to categorise cookbooks in fiction or non fiction category so far, but over the years they have formed a category for themselves.
