Executive Chef: Tsering Nyima
Tsering Nyima joined Great Performances as BAMcafé’s executive chef in 2010. His culinary experience is grounded in French, Indian, New American, German, Austrian, Chinese, and Japanese cuisines. Nyima was born in eastern Tibet and left at age 14 for a life of exile in India, where, at a Buddhist monastery, he learned how to cook. Nearly a decade later, he came to New York and mastered his cooking skills and knowledge under the guidance of Laurent Tourondel (BLT Steak, BLT Burger, Brasserie Ruhlmann), Gary Robins (Moko), Kurt Gutenbrunner (Wallse, Blaue Gans), and Tadeo Mikami (Hatsuhana).
