I really enjoyed writing the article I uploaded on High Peaks Pure Earth earlier today using food as a lens through which to examine Tibetan identity. Many people helped me with ideas, suggestions and information, I’d like to thank them for putting up with my hundreds of questions about black beans!!
The article is our official contribution to a whole week of writings about food called “Food for Thinkers” hosted by Nicola Twilley of Edible Geography fame at her new gig as the food editor of GOOD (congratulations by the way!).
There was no better way to celebrate finishing the article than to indulge in a piece of freshly baked walnut cake. Fittingly, the walnut cake was baked also using tsampa, yummy!
