The newest member of Team Taste Tibet is Aisling Dunne.
We know Aisling from years back. We met when we were living in Beijing, where Aisling was a film and theatre actress, and sometime whiz kid at Technicolour. Aisling has visited Tibet and can speak a few words in Tibetan, to add to her skills as a translator and interpreter of Chinese. Brains and beauty. Welcome Aisling!
This summer, Aisling will be coordinating the Taste Tibet team at events near and far. She joined us for a dummy run last weekend at the Blenheim Palace Food Festival, and impressed Chef Yeshi with her awesome stamina, her handling of the hungry punters (especially during a brief chicken curry drought), and her unceasing patience and good humour.
Aisling will be back in July, and working with us throughout the summer. Watch out for her if you on the momo hunt at music festivals, food festivals, and a return visit to Blenheim Palace in August for BBC Countryfile Live.
