About the Chef

Home / About the Chef

Namaste, I am Babita Shrestha. I am a chef, photographer, graphic designer, and filmmaker. I grew up in Nepal but my love of visual arts brought me to study graphic design in the United States over a decade ago to get my Bachelor in Fine Arts and Minor in Photojournalism from St. Cloud State University, Minnesota.

After becoming completely Vegan in 2016, I started being even more passionate about cooking delicious and healthy plant-based meals for myself & my friends. I started creating my own unique vegan recipes. This soon leads me to educate and promote fresh and nutritious dishes.  I moved back to Nepal in 2020 to reconnect with my roots and continue living a sustainable life.

I am an ardent entrepreneur focused on plant-based enterprises that also promote & progress my cultural heritage through my company Vegan Nepal.

Currently, I am working on finishing my cookbook.
