ihm college & i am with chef welcomes to Chef Shah

Kathmandu, March 5: Popular chef Santosh Shah has made Nepal proud through his hard work and perseveration. Recently shah finished first runner-up in the BBC Television competitive cooking show, Master Chef: The Professionals, which has helped Nepal known to the world.

Following this achievement, Shah known as ‘king of cooking’ has garnered popularity not only in Nepal but also across the world. Congratulatory messages were pouring in for him.

Shah has heightened image of Nepal to the world by providing the country’s indigenous dishes to the globe. “There is no difficulty to get success in the world. Just hard work is needed. I have made a plan to promote Nepal’s typical dishes across the world,” shared an elated Shah, who today landed in Nepal following this achievement.

He was talking to media-persons at Tribhuvan International Airport shortly after landing here from the UK. Operating a restaurant each in the UK and Nepal is his recent plan on the table. “Hard work is a secret of my success. We try to be happy with whatever we have.”

Obviously, he went through a journey of struggle to reach this situation. I did struggle a lot in my life. “I used to sell plastic bags and bread at a point in time. Now I am happy with whatever achievement I have got,” he shared.

He said that he arrived Nepal to learn more from Nepali chefs as he started to prepare Nepali food only from two years ago.
Shah said, “Our food habit is not so hygienic. I want to request all to have warm food and only drink bottle water.”

I had never expected that I, an ordinary Nepali, could get such big success. There is no recognition to chef and food in the country. He started journey of struggle with an objective of doing something in this sector, added Shah.

He opined, “Though I worked in India for 10 years as chef, now I got success as I had thought doing something for the recognition of Nepali food and Nepal.”

“Now, there will be quality in Nepali food and the country can also make income by publishing the indigenous Nepali dishes,” he opined.
Shah is publishing a book ‘Cook Book’ in five languages. He said that he arrived in Nepal for the activities related to the book publication. A world-wide roadmap of food has been prepared and the campaign would be started from London, he said.

“There is no chef culture in Nepal but it is possible,” the king of cooking, Shah hoped.

Shah, who arrived in Nepal at the initiative and facilitation of the Pacific Asia Travel association (PATA) Nepal Chapter, will be in the country for about a month. He will be the key-note speaker in the 44th annual general meeting of PATA.

Shah will also participate in the programs to be organized by other tourism organizations including Nepal tourism Board (NTB).
