Many people think that what we Tibetans usually eat during the Chinese New Year and festivals is just plain food.

While studying the different practices of highland ingredients, she developed new highland food such as highland barley yogurt cups, tsampa mooncakes, and ginseng fruit shortcakes.

  Because of some of our traditional (food), such as the traditional way of eating tsampa, many young people, including children, are reluctant to eat.

So I think these should be changed, including its shape, as well as the taste (also), so that more people will accept it.

  [Explanation] Since November 2021, Shengning Zhuoma has begun to recruit students online, and more than 1,000 students have been recruited in just one month.

Through online training and selling cooking tutorials, Shengning Zhuoma has successfully embarked on his own entrepreneurial path.

  I now have more than 2,000 students, most of them are Tibetan, so I usually speak in Tibetan.

Some of the people who come to me to study are students. They just want to learn more skills so that they can find jobs in the future.

Most of them are housewives. They just want to improve their previous single eating habits. Everyone wants to eat healthier and richer, and now their living conditions are better.

  [Commentary] In addition to recording the production of Tibetan food with video, Shengning Zhuoma is also trying to write Tibetan food books.

Shengning Zhuoma revealed that according to the current progress, the Tibetan version of the food book written by himself is expected to be completed within this year.

  I am writing this Tibetan version of the food tutorial because I found out in the process of my own learning that the Tibetan version of the food tutorial is relatively small, but the demand is relatively large.

I'm going to turn my recorded tutorial into a QR code, and then put it on the book, combining text and video, so that it is more convenient for everyone to learn and understand.

I plan to make more innovations on the basis of Tibetan food in the future. I hope everyone knows about Tibetan food and likes it.
