In Search of Tibetan Recipes

As expected, not one of my cookbooks contains a single Tibetan recipe. But when I went online in search of information on Tibetan food and recipes, even without a Sherpa guide, I was pleasantly surprised at the bounty of choices that a simple keyword search yielded. There are at least a half-dozen websites that feature a repertoire of classic Tibetan dishes. So, I cut and pasted all the ones that looked interesting into a single recipe file. Some were duplicates, but among the choices, there was enough variety to come up with a hearty, four-course menu.
