Friday we held our weekly Foreign Food Fest. The kids chose to celebrate Tibet. I was pleasantly surprised to find a great website with recipes, cultural info, and stunning photos of Tibet at www.yowangdu.com. I chose a dish called "thenthuk" which is a beef noodle soup. Alyssa and I even learned to make the noodles by hand. Pulling the dough, tossing it into the broth, and trying to see who could do it faster were moments I'll not soon forget. Then we decided to make a coconut rice pudding for dessert. Alyssa made the pudding all by herself. We were all impressed with the results of both the thenthuk and the pudding. Our taste of Tibet was a delicious success!
I'll be posting both recipes at foreignfoodfest.blogspot.com. Check out yowangdu's site to take you directly to the thenthuk recipe with a great video showing the noodle pulling technique.
