He was born in Australia and now lives in Singapore. Dr. Stefan has reached the pinnacle of profession after working in major international hotel chains, top end clubs, owning his own restaurant for 12 years.

The objective of the training was to highlight the Experience Nepal-Cuisine and Culture Campaign and support to globalize the Nepalese cuisine. Since food is directly related to lifestyles, cultures, festivals, geography, nature and climate of a country and its people, the campaign claims that international tourists can explore our true cultures and traditions through our authentic cuisines. Hotel Association Nepal believes that the participants of the workshop have learned a great deal from Dr. Stefan and will apply their knowledge and expertise in promotion of Nepali cuisines internationally.

To honor his phenomenal contribution towards culinary arts, later in the evening, Dr. Rick Stephen was appointed as The Goodwill Ambassador of the Experience Nepal - Culture and Cuisines and Campaign to Globalize Nepali Cuisines by the CEO, Mr. D.R Joshi of Nepal Tourism Board.
