During a celebration of the first electricity to come to this village in Bhutan, visiting dignitaries join village elder Namgay at a buffet of red rice, potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, beef, chicken, and a spicy cheese and chili pepper soup (close-up of table shown here). The villagers have been stockpiling food for the event. (Supporting image from the project Hungry Planet: What the World Eats.) The Namgay family living in the remote mountain village of Shingkhey, Bhutan, is one of the thirty families featured, with a weeks' worth of food, in the book Hungry Planet: What the World Eats.
