About the Fresh Ingredients for a Tibetan Dinner

The fresh ingredients for my 'Seven Years in Tibet' dinner are neither delicate nor esoteric. They include Chicken, Lamb, Ground Beef, Kale, Onion, Garlic, Ginger, Chili Peppers, Potatoes, Red Bell Pepper, Yogurt, Limes, Tomatoes, Scallions, Cilantro, Daikon, Spinach, Cabbage, Green Beans, and Heavy Cream. So shopping should be easy and can even be done a couple of days in advance of the dinner, as long as I store the meats in the freezer until the day of the dinner.
