Welcome to Episode Nine - Peaceful State of Mind with KyiKyi of @Himalyandumplings.

I met KyiKyi for the first time when we were both vendors at the Beaverton Night Market. While she sold her amazing dumplings to a long line, I sold Refutees just a few tents away. We were both on a similar path to preserve, celebrate and amplify our heritage and voices through our art.

KyiKyi puts her entire heart and soul into her food and shares her unique Tibetan culture with everyone ready for a plate of something special.

Using Tibetan Cuisine to preserve Tibetan culture and identity and to educate her kids and community further. Sharing recipes and cooking through her YouTube Channel helps her further archive the time to continue to practice her art through the pandemic.

Cooking is a therapy that helps her reconcile with her past as an exiled Refugee. Her story, warmth, and peaceful Spirit will have you wanting to hang out with Kyi Kyi and eating up a storm. Enjoy the Episode!
