It’s half term, so we’re doing all the right things by the kids. Yesterday we even took them to the Office of Tibet in London, where they spent some time honing their Tibetan writing skills and we applied – finally – for their Tibetan passports.
In the spirit of having fun and hanging out with the children, we’re keeping this week’s newsletter brief. Basically it is a puff piece for our book, Taste Tibet, which this week was named by the Independent as one of the 8 Best Culinary Escape Books for 2022.
The Independent selected books on their ability to take readers on an edible journey and to introduce them to less-familiar food cultures and cuisines. They also considered the quality of the prose, the level of research undertaken, the photography, and the recipes: their “interestingness”, how well they worked and how much they enjoyed eating them.
Taste Tibet’s recipes, says author Susan Low, “are well written, and really work”. She tried vegetable thupka, a dish of handmade noodles and veg in a simple broth, and describes it as “sensational” and “easier than it sounds.” Taste Tibet, she says, is “an unbeatable introduction to Tibetan cuisine and culture” and “a ground-breaking book”.

Finally, if you love Taste Tibet as much as the Independent, please make our half term by leaving us a review. You don’t need to have bought your copy through Amazon to review it there. If you did, you need only leave a rating. If you didn’t, you’ll have to leave a few short words as well. Thank you 🙏🏽
