— “My cuisine comes from what I have seen with my eyes and hands. I try to create tension with flavors, because that’s what life is about — savory and sour, sweet and bitter. I make a lot of the food I ate as a kid, but I’ve seen so many things since then, so my food is always changing. I took a lot of influence from the international cafes in Dharamshala in India, where I worked after leaving Tibet. It pushed me to be more healthy and to make vegetarian and vegan food. My cuisine is about what happens when countries overlap: Tibet and China, India and Nepal. We’re always going back and forth and arguing about borders. A lot of food is in the same situation.” — Chef Dorjee in Clove Magazine of South Asian Culture 2018
