Momo gives you a gastronomical tour of Tibet
Momo, the mainstay of the Tibetans, is a delicious dumpling, stuffed
with minced meat and steamed or fried. About 8 - 10 eaten in 5 minutes can make you laugh with joy. Normally
momos are eaten dipped in a wonderfully red chilli sauce, which makes you dance. See recipe!
Dr Stan Wagner and his group of 52 had a good meal of thukpa, cooked in 2
hours flat by Tsering and helpers. The average age of the group was 60, and boy, did they have good appetites!
Momo gives you tall stories and legends
Around the bonfire, or on a glacier. On the edge of a precipice, or on the long lonely road. Learn about
gods and goddesses, kings and errant queens, wrath and damnation, blessings and celebration!
Momo gives you local colour
What about dining with a shepherd or dancing with the locals, or learning a bit of the lingo?
Whatever you wish, it will be done!
Momo gives you a headytrailmix!
Trailmix is Momo's unpatented energy booster you munch on the way to Chandrashila or
ny other mountain. Or whenever you want to chew your fingernails. (Which happens if a leopard
sights you and you him.)
The recipe is roughly choc bits, nuts, roasted grain, gur, and other top secret ingredients.
(Can tell you no mo.)
Momo gives you brain teasers
What makes a Tibetan more like a yak and less like a donkey?
