Chef Tenzin Sherpa
Tenzin's life-long journey and passion for spices began at a very young age. His foods are inspired through the colorful memories of his grandmother's family recipes and her cooking style. Cherring Mendok Sherpa's influence runs deep within his bold flavors, which are always paired with seasonal, simple and fresh ingredients.
Tenzin's grandfather, renowned Himalayan mountain guide and Everest climber Dawa Tsering Sherpa, once gave him endearing advice while they were hiking together. "Do not only focus where you are going, or how high you have to climb to get there, take time to look at what you have achieved to get where you are". This advice stays close to Tenzin today, and his food is an homage to that day hiking in the mountains with his grandfather.
