Gurkha Chef Celebrates its 10 Year Anniversary
Nepalese food is often considered a combination of ingredients, flavours and cooking styles of a variety of cultures including China, Tibet and of course, India.
But it is often India that it is most closely compared to. Largely, perhaps, due to the bright colours, scintillating flavours, a variety of ingredients, cooking styles and, largely, its spice.
While it does share some similarities with Indian food and takes influences from its neighbour, Nepalese food is still very much a unique international cuisine.
Its uniqueness was partly caused by Nepal’s location. As it began to experience import and export difficulties for food from its neighbouring countries, it has led Nepal to use a wide range of produce that is grown and sourced locally. As Nepal opened up its borders over 60 years ago, it may well be these seemingly detrimental events that have given Nepalese the strong reputation for exceptional freshness and high quality.
It’s true to say that with Nepal’s rich and diverse culture, traditions and people, it truly stands out as one of the international cuisine’s most tasty and sought-after flavours. Nepal uses simple and subtle methods to achieve outstanding flavours.
