Regular visitors to our stall in Oxford's Gloucester Green may already be familiar with this smiling face. The new addition to the Taste Tibet team is Chef Namdi. Namdi hails from Tibet, but he spent many years working in restaurants and bars in Belgium. Welcome Namdi!
Last Saturday we threw Namdi in at the deep end with Taste Tibet's second university college ball of the 2017 season. Hertford College is situated just next to two of Oxford's most famous landmarks, the Bridge of Sighs and the Radcliffe Camera. For their 2017 student ball, food and drink was served up on Catte Street, the small lane that runs between the two.
For Taste Tibet it was an order of one thousand portions of Himalayan curry. The students arrive hungry in the early evening, and most of the food is served within the first couple of hours of the ball.
Namdi will be working with us through the busy summer season and (if he survives) beyond. We are so thrilled to be expanding our team. More hands means more momos and more momos means more markets.
For now, while we see out the Oxford and Cambridge ball season and the music festivals beyond, we are running our stall in Gloucester Green on Wednesdays only. But we will be here, there and everywhere over the summer, so join us wherever you can!
