So I did my second public food demo at Macy’s. It was an exceptional experience. Presented by Ankara Miami and hosted by Macy’s DADELAND. They went all out. The set up the menu cards, the gift bags, and I used Anolon pots and pans. Guests started showing up 30 minutes before we were even scheduled to begin. I was like ok, new love-foodies are ready for some African fusion meals. I walked in to see a sign welcoming the guests (yes my husband photo-bomed the shot lol). Then I went in to set up. We made a 3 course meal in celebration of father’s day
Dish 1- Starter- Cabbage Salad
Dish 2: Salmon, sauteed peppers with couscous
Dish #3 is sorbet with some fresh made plantain chips with tropical fruit medley
So we had a foodie call. I would say “who are you?” and the audience would reply ” I’m a love-foodie woowhooo!” hahah it was so fun. Looking forward to many more demonstrations. I got to talk about the power of food to bring us all together. See the video here: Love of food video
I got to sign many books, chat with new love-foodies and many of them asked questions about African food, growing up in Nigeria, spices etc. I enjoyed sharing love with food. I look forward to sharing more. See more images here.
Hey love foodies so the food demonstration with Ankara Miami was awesome. We made akara and moi moi. (All with beans for my non African friends) And it all took less than 50 minutes to make. Yuppp. (considering typically the beans cleaning usually takes hours) From cleaning the beans to eating it. Ankara Miami this was a lovely event. And the cookies went pretty fast lol. And @essieizspicy it was awesome seeing your goodies in the baggies. We need to catch up soon.
