A celebration of Bhutanese cooking from all around the nation will descend on the capital for the main festival weekend. The Bhutanese people love their chillies. In Bhutan, chilli is not considered to be a spice but an essential vegetable that should be at the centre of every dish! Get hooked on the delicious national favourite Ema Datshi – a mix of chilli and local cheese, or try (originally Tibetan) Mo:mo, a meat or vegetable filled pasta dumpling with hundreds of varieties.
