Hey Foodlovers! Remember Chef Saida from our Mac & Cheese post? I promised to tell you more about her and there couldn’t be a better time than today….her birthday! But first, Let’s take 3secs to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHEF SAIDA….WE LOVE YOU!
I went over to her kitchen last week and luckily she had just whipped up some magical meals for a photoshoot….of course I took pictures for you *wink*
Next, a fusion of two traditional meals….
Osso Bucco (Milanese) and Asaro (Nigerian) topped with Gremolata
I had to ask what ‘osso bucco’ is….she explained that it is veal shank (a part of the leg). I tried out this perfection and I wished that I was friends with a Yoruba (Nigerian tribe) lady getting married to an Italian man just so I let them know this has to be served at the wedding!
Next is the Va-va-voom of all!
Trio of chocolate mousse tartlets topped with handcrafted Belgian chocolate truffles and edible 24ct gold
Yes 24ct gold! After having two of these delectable babies, all I can say is…..I could get used to this lifestyle!
