The Food King
Kabi grew up in a small village close to the oldest temple of Nepal, Changu Narayan--Bhaktapur that sits on the hill overlooking the beautiful riverscape of Manohara river. He worked in Banaras (=Varanasi) in a well-known hotel with nearly 80 rooms for about five years. This was the start of his career from India in 1993 –and after working there he returned back to Nepal. He was destined to work for 12 solid years for a mountain resort in Nagarkot as its main chef. He saw Nagarkot change from small hill town with a few tiny thatch roof guest houses to a town of much bigger, luxurious hotels within this period. He also decided that he should gain some experience from the rising middle east economy and worked three years in Dubai, the hub of west Asia. With over 23 years' experience in all these places, Kabi has seen more world than many others and cooked for 1000s of guests!
Kabi joined as a Chef with us at LBG two years ago and has significantly improved the hygiene and quality of food. He has given new face to the kitchen, designed new meals and menus and loves offering organic product to our guests!
Kabi manages the organic vegetable farm at LBG. He is a very social, easy to approach and somebody who loves to chat with visiting guests. Of course outside his cooking hours!
