I’m finally entering the “blog world” after so many requests from students, friends, and family. Just to let you know, I am from the center of the earth. I grew up in a Newari family in Kathmandu, Nepal, in Ason Tole. Ason is an ancient bazaar and trading center for India and Tibet. My surname is Vaidya, meaning Ayurvedic Doctor - my forefathers practiced Ayurveda, which is based on using food, herbs, and spices as medicine. So here I am a “Kitchen Doctor” teaching ancient wisdom and traditional ways of cooking at various public events, and at many schools, to raise health awareness. I am the Man with the Pan.
"The kitchen is my temple; I dance, sing, smile, and create joy for myself and others."
