HRH Crown prince Frederik is in town!
Why mention this on our blog?
The thing is – while the whole world knows about his visit (at least in Nepal and in Denmark) only a few know who made the food for the reception held for him at the Danis Embassy today.
We did – or Tings did.
When we work with local art & artist we never focus on their nationality.
The only thing that matters to us is talent, motivation, hard work and humor. If they are not as talented (or better) as their fellow artists from all over the world, they will never make it on their own.
Same with our kitchen. If they cannot make a Non Nepalese Menu – as the one they delivered today – as good as any other kitchen in town (Nepalese or Foreign) they will not get more orders.
10 month ago Tings got the first big catering – for 300 guests at the Danish Embassy. We have had requests before, but that was the first time Dorjee, Jit and the rest of Tings felt they were ready to perform and deliver without our presense… (we were in Europe)
A couple of hours ago Tings served the menu below for 200 guests at the Danish Embassy. They wanted Tings to repeat the success. At the moment we (Thomas and Annette) are in Lisbon working on Tings 2 – so we were not present. But guests at the Embassy told us the food was excellent.
We are so proud of Suza, Rajev, Urmilla, Gita, Sareta, Mithun, Sagar, Dorje, Sanjet, Sabena, Jit and Aman (good to see you) and the 2 other friends that gave a helping hand.
Lots of love from Lisbon
Annette & Thomas
