Dhanpal Singh Negi

Joined Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest as Asian Chef

Dhanpal Singh Negi

Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest is pleased to announce the appointment of Dhanpal Singh Negi as the new Asian chef.

The Kempinski Corvinus kitchen team catered for an Indian event a year ago, when they met Mr. Negi as a guest chef, organised by the client. The collaboration was so successful that the hotel invited the Indian chef to be a permanent part of the Budapest team.

Mr. Negi trained in his native India and worked at several hotels while also organising Indian food festivals in Sri Lanka and Italy.

Enhancing its Indian wedding and party specialisation, Kempinski Corvinus is pleased to welcome Mr. Negi on board its Ten Rooms, as well as The Kitchen Caters catering and event management operations, which already offer specific features to Indian guests, such as a wide range of vegetarian dishes and sweet tea.

Dhanpal will also work with the hotel's breakfast chefs on enhancing the Asian Breakfast Corner.
