Mint Fanatics, did you know that our Chef Nikky Phinyawatana now has her own TV show?
Yes, folks, you read that right. And no, we’re not talking about her recently launched YouTube channel Nikky Feeding Souls.
The Dallas-based digital marketing company The Time Group will be launching a variety of digital TV series featuring the best of Texas. The first of these series is Texas Foodies TV, and it’s hosted by none other than—drumroll please—Chef Nikky Phinyawatana.
Texas Foodies TV celebrates the diversity of the Dallas food scene
Texas Foodies TV puts a spotlight on everything that’s great and wonderful about the Dallas food scene. With each episode, we get to know the movers and shakers of the Dallas food industry, from renowned restaurateurs and chefs, to outstanding foodies.
More importantly, Texas Foodies TV celebrates the diversity of the Dallas food scene. The show takes a deeper look into the passions and challenges that drive the industry’s luminaries, as well as how their culture influences their food.
The show’s first episode streamed on April this year; in a few short months, the show has already built up a 450,000-strong subscriber base. It’s also begun to generate some media buzz—Dallas Innovate has taken notice, and so has Yahoo.com.
Chef Nikky chats with celebrity chef Vikas Khanna in the latest Texas Foodies TV episode
Throughout the series, Chef Nikky has interacted with some extremely interesting people from the local food scene. But the most high-profile of them so far is international culinary darling Vikas Khanna.
Vikas Khanna is considered to be one of the most influential chefs in the world today. A Michelin-starred chef and James Beard Award nominee, Chef Vikas has worked alongside renowned chefs like Gordon Ramsey, Bobby Flay, and Jean-Georges Vongerichten. He has also appeared in various cooking shows and is currently the host of MasterChef India.
In Chef Nikky’s own words: “It is a rare treat to have the opportunity to sit down and glean from a visionary such as Vikas Khanna. He not only feeds the souls of those who enjoy his food, but also helps bring others into everything that makes the Indian culture so incredible.”
