Yak's Cheese And Butter In BhutanStreaming Video - 2013
Remote and isolated, the Kingdom of Bhutan measures its economy on Gross National Happiness. Host Will Studd travels to a small farm in Bhutan where he samples some local cuisine and learns how the locals churn butter for cooking and ceremonial purposes by hand. He is then invited to visit one of the oldest monasteries in this devoutly Buddhist country, where he lights candles to guide the souls of the dead before sampling a cheese and chili dish. Next, he goes high into the Himalayas for a lesson on how to milk a yak, and how to make cheese the traditional way; in a smoky mountain hut.
