For the first time in two years, Nepalese-native Chef Santosh Shah will be visiting Nepal following his success on UK’s Master Chef: The Professionals 2020. Santosh will arrive in Kathmandu Airport at 11:15am and will be greeted by the Nepal Tourism Board; the Global Academy of Tourism & Hospitality Education; and The Voice of Chefs alongside a traditional Nepalese instrumental welcome. Santosh will be a keynote speaker at the Pacific Asia Travel Association’s 44th Annual General Meeting in Kathmandu on 5th March 2021 and will also be honoured with the PATA Personality of the Year Award on the occasion, which Chef is very much looking forward to.
During his two-month long stay, Santosh will be travelling to various places of Nepal, sourcing new ingredients and trying regional dishes as research for his upcoming cookbook. He added, I am very very excited to spend some much-needed quality time with his entire family including his mother.
