Family recipes from the Himalayas
Health-giving, accessible, delicious recipes, put together with passion and purpose, and enlightening food stories from a civilisation that has not yet lost touch with how to eat.
Julie Kleeman studied Chinese at Cambridge University and has been travelling and eating in Asia since 1992. She lived in Beijing for many years, where she worked as the Chief Editor of the Oxford Chinese Dictionary. Yeshi Jampa grew up in Tibet, herding livestock on the high reaches of the plateau and learning to cook inside a yak hair tent at a young age. When he was nineteen, Yeshi walked across the Himalayas to northern India, where he and Julie later met. Yeshi's soups and stir-fries won Julie's heart, and they are now married with two children and living in Oxford, UK. Together, they own and run the Taste Tibet restaurant and festival food stall, a Guardian and BBC Good Food Top Ten pick, and a finalist in the Best Street Food or Takeaway category in the 2021 BBC Food and Farming Awards. Julie and Yeshi share a passion for food and wellbeing, and have made it their mission to get Tibet on the global food map.
