Travel/Food: Nepalese Cuisine

Dal Bhat. Pakoras. Puri. Roti. Momos. While I was in Nepal (see previous post for details of the project) we ate the staples and tried the local snacks, and I thought as a food blogger it was only right to speak a little about it. The Nepalese cuisine has influences from both India and China,…

Travel: An afternoon in Wells, Somerset
