Postcards from Tibet

We’ve been bringing you weekly insights into daily life in Tibet since 2016. These “postcards” give some context to our food, and why we do what we do. They are a glimpse of Yeshi’s other world and his experience adapting to life here in the UK.

In 2019 Julie won the Yan-Kit So Award for Food Writers on Asia, a prize that is awarded every two years to an emerging writer who enhances our understanding and appreciation of Asian food culture.

Our debut cookbook, Taste Tibet, was published by Murdoch Books in 2022. If you have enjoyed our Postcards from Tibet over the years we think you will love our cookbook, which is a mix of family recipes and stories from our Himalayan home.

If you’d like to join our journey, sign up to our mailing list to receive our weekly newsletter. There’s always a discount or freebie within, sometimes a recipe as well.
