Tshering Zangmo said that she was fortunate to be at the Olympiad.

“This opportunity is a stepping stone to my career.” 

Her mentor, Tshewang Rinzin, who has trained her in Bhutan, said that participants from more than 50 countries took part. It is important for Bhutan to participate in such international events.

Tshering Zangmo has successfully made it to round two of the Olympiad. The first round was for a French main dish and a French dessert.

As for the second round, the challenge was to showcase one’s original ‘creative’ food.

How the Young Chef Olympiad has benefitted Tshering Zangmo

Meeting with people from different countries and learning about various food cultures was something new to Tshering Zangmo.

“It made me feel good about myself and it boosted my confidence.”

She added that even though funding her participation was a challenge for the institute, the Bhutan Development Bank and some individuals have kindly sponsored the team from Bhutan this year.
