How Vicky Ratnani’s TV Shows Made Him A Household Name


A self professed explorer and lover of flavour and taste, celebrity chef Vicky Ratnani has become a household name with his tastefully unique and easygoing approach to food. Known for his charm and his wit, he is a chef with a difference. Vicky’s love for food stemmed from his mother’s cooking. Despite being a commerce graduate, he did not want to join his father’s textile business and joined IHM Mumbai. It was only in his second year that he discovered his love for cooking. And the rest, as they say, is history.


Vicky Ratnani’s recipes are modern and enticing, and his TV shows are testament to his passion. He made his first TV appearance alongside Maria Goretti on Do It Sweet, a show which featured some of the most delectable desserts on NDTV Good Times, which he says is his most memorable show.

He also demonstrated his own inimitable take on vegetarian food on the show called Vicky Goes Veg for which Vicky is said to have had only vegetarian food for three months! The show, which too aired on NDTV Good Times, was very well received by the Indian audience, and Vicky says it was a “life changing experience”. Owing to its immense popularity, a cookbook of the same name has also been published, and a second season of the show is also been aired, much to viewers’ delight. Vicky has hosted a number of other shows including Vickypedia, Vicky Goes Desi and Vicky Goes Foreign.

Vicky toured Australia extensively, discovering its culture and cuisine in his recent show, Taste Down Under, which aired on Living Foodz. The show, which was a collaboration between Living Foodz and Tourism Australia, brought to the Indian audience the beauty of Australia’s landscape and its various sights, sounds and flavours, further strengthening the country’s reputation as a food and adventure destination.
