Greetings fellow followers of Small Bites. I’m Sharon Pickett, a resident of Scarborough, N.Y. and South Kingstown, R.I. Some of you may know me as a guest blogger, mainly focusing on the great bounty that is Hudson Valley Restaurant Week. This year, however, I decided to take my dining a bit more afield to Bhutan and Nepal, with a bit of a stop-off in Delhi.
What will follow are my observations, discoveries and encounters with many of the ranges of cooking styles and traditions of these still almost mystical mountainous regions.
I was fortunate to trek the lower regions of the Himalayan and Annapurna mountains, fly over Mount Everest in a small plane (although the pilot refused to let me take the controls!), raft on the Seti river and ride an elephant through Chitwan National Park, all the time wondering what might be for dinner.
I’ll be posting a few of my delectable encounters, so stay tuned!
