BORN IN INDIA
AT HOME IN BAVARIA

The Ayurveda specialist Nicky Sitaram Sabnis worked for many years as a restaurant and catering manager in Bombay before moving to his adopted home, Bavaria, in 1993. Since 1998 Nicky has been in charge of the ayurvedic kitchen in the Frauenwörth Abbey on the Fraueninsel, Chiemsee, running seminars and weekend courses in Ayurvedic cuisine and nutrition.

 

Born in 1959 in Kanpur, India. Hotelier and Ayurveda-Chef. Master’s degree in Old-Indian Culture.

Nicky has been living in Germany since 1993 and since 1998 has been in charge of the ayurvedic kitchen in the Frauenwörth Abbey on the Fraueninsel, Chiemsee, running seminars and weekend courses in Ayurvedic cuisine and nutrition for adults, children and handicapped groups.

Nicky Sitaram Sabnis is a passionate Ayurveda chef and has made a career out of a hobby. As a restaurateur in India he experienced for himself the effects of stress, to the point of serious illness and a resultant operation. This experience took him back to the life-style and nutritional teachings of Ayurveda, from which he now draws daily strength and his joy in life.

The balancing and strengthening effects of ayurvedic philosophy support our body, mind and spirit in our daily lives.

His most important spice is love and he sees his work as an affirmation of life, a conscious challenge to enjoy and manage our life

He is the author of several books on ayurvedic cuisine and his cooking skills have been presented in a number of television programmes. Over the many years, Bavaria has become his second home.

It is his great wish to combine ayurvedic wisdom and its teachings on nutrition with Western cultural approaches and to inspire as many people as possible through the positive and life-affirming effects of these teachings.

Leider ist es für Besucher der Fraueninsel nicht möglich, als Gäste bei Nicky Sabnis zu essen.

“When I watch Nicky at work in the monastery kitchen I recognise again what I have long known: here is a master of his craft at work. Completely in control, fluid, relaxed, he juggles knives, pots, pans, vegetables, meat, fish, spices... Sometimes he seems curious himself to see what the result will be. He tastes, adjusts and fine tunes until he is satisfied. ...  He brings the same qualities to his personal life: he is fully present, bubbling with joie de vivre, humour and wisdom“
