Famous food columnist and restauranteur Jiggs Kalra passed away at 72 after a long illness. Referred to as the "czar of Indian cuisine" and "taste maker to the nation", Kalra had been pivotal in bringing Indian food to international audiences.

Shortly after news of his death emerged, tributes began pouring in.

Vir Sanghvi, a fellow food-critic, condoled his death in a Twitter post. "Goodbye old friend. The great Jiggs Kalra who did so much to rediscover the lost secrets of Indian food and who gave chefs their rightful place in the sun goes off to that great kitchen in the sky to ensure that the Gods eat his wonderful food. There will never be another Jiggs," he tweeted.

Filmmakers Hansal Mehta and Vivek Agnihotri also condoled his death. "Thank you for introducing me to Indian food and it's treasure of recipes. All your books adorn my bookshelf and the masala and oil on each page is testimony to how your recipes have shaped my passion for cooking," Mehta wrote.
