The Amritsar born chef, who unveiled his book on cuisine for festivals and rituals of Indian communities titled “Utsav – A culinary epic of Indian festivals” at Cannes, will prepare a six-seven course meal covering 30-plus festivals in that spread and showcase ‘rich, beautiful India’ in a new age and fine dining avatar.

While Khanna remained unavailable for the comment, his representative Deepika Bansal said he’s “proud and humble to get the opportunity”.
