Tomorrow I'm heading to my cook friend's apartment. Seems simple enough, right?
Not so much. My friend is Tashi. He's from Tibet and his mom is making me and a few other cooks some delicious momos aka dumplings for all you Americans out there. (Um, I googled too. Don't worry).
Anyway, so Tashi family doesn't speak English so he will be translating and well, I asked what I could bring over and was told -- fruit (and candy for his little sister) Then I kinda started to panic.
Fruit! Like in a basket? Or just a bunch of bananas? Should I make a fruit salad? And I was told, none of the above. Just fruit.
I find different cultures to be quite fascinating and I love learning all I can but one thing I don't want to do is accidentally disrespect anyone.
So, what would you do? How would you bring over the fruit?
