Julie Kleeman

I am the co-owner of Taste Tibet, a restaurant and festival food stall based in Oxford. My husband, Yeshi Jampa, is Taste Tibet's chef and chief recipe writer. In 2019 I won the Yan-Kit So Award for Food Writers on Asia. Our cookbook, Taste Tibet: Family Recipes from the Himalayas will be published by Murdoch books in March 2022.

Commercial interests

I am interested in Asian food and cookbooks as a whole. Our business, Taste Tibet, has so far navigated three lockdowns, and I am also interested in connecting with others in the industry who follow food trends and the impact of Covid-19 on the sector.
