My fab­u­lousFri­day

WEEK­ENDS WITH MY GIRLS My sis­ter Rad­hika Khanna, who’s a de­signer, and my nieces, 15-year-old Ojasvi and 10-year-old Saumya, live in NYC, too. On week­ends when I’m not work­ing, we en­joy break­fasts to­gether at some sim­ple res­tau­rant fol­lowed by a movie and maybe a long drive. PLAY­ING BY THE BOOK My favourite book is Jonathan Liv­ingston Seag­ull. My brother gave it to me when I was about 30. The seag­ull wants to fly and ev­ery­one says it is a dis­ease to fly, so I de­cided I wanted that dis­ease. It was a decade later that I opened Junoon in New York. I also never tire of read­ing cook­books. I read them like nov­els.
