This was a delicious, simple dessert! I loved the flavors of this dish and the fact that it wasn’t too sweet. The rich, dense chocolate torte was sliced thinly enough so that it didn’t weigh down the other components. Noms!

Lentils, lamb and barramundi – Radio Africa & Kitchen

After we saw this plated trio, we knew we were gonna be full! The items were all really different and very tasty. I thought that the column of French green lentils was creative and beautifully presented. The lamb prepared two ways was good, and the barramundi had a nice flavor. Everything was pretty heavy though so we had to pace ourselves. 🙂

I love roasted beets and this salad had a awesome combination of flavors and textures. It was super refreshing and delicious. I’ve never had Ethiopian wot before, but this mushroom wot reminded me of an Italian crostini. It tasted great!

Mmm, I love warm, cheesy, herby spreads. And this one also had smoked trout it in, score! This was really good and comforting food, and the red cabbage and apple salad was a great accompaniment to cut through the richness of the spread.

I really liked these prawns – they had a lot of flavor. They were probably on the verge of being overcooked so they could have been a bit more tender, but I still liked the dish overall.

The artichoke soup was really delicious, and nice and warm. The butternut squash soup on the other hand was cold and not very appetizing because of it. Thank goodness there were two to choose from.

These were delicious little bites compliments of the chef. I liked that it was made with real crab and not imitation.
