Your taste “BUDs”

Welcome fans,

I hope that you are all enjoying the spring like weather that we are having in Toronto! Let’s keep our fingers crossed that summer will be welcoming…
So here’s what’s up, I established a new love for Cupcakes and its flavor, unlike any dessert I love cupcakes with flavored icing toppings, it has my mouth salivating.  
The texture, taste, and colors can make a statement for any events sweet table.
I love doing tastings, I am passionate about food but I somehow can’t wait after the entree for the desserts. It completes any meal and knots everything together. Here are some flavors of my beloved little cupcakes!

Say I do to the menu!

Hello friends,
Today I would like to share something that is important to me, food! Cooking is also my full time profession. I have work at some prestigious places since I have come, to this our beautiful country, and have come to fall in love with what I do! Brides and Grooms in all the planning… pretty decor, great music; food should also be a very important factor in planning a great wedding.
 
Remember presentation, presentation, presentation is KEY! People eat with their eyes first and the rest of their four senses. So wow your guests with something that’s different in terms of (taste, flavor and presentation) and create something that’s out of the ordinary that will leave a lasting impression.
 
Ask your chef to spice up your entree with a punch of color and pair your food with great wine. Food presented on white china always makes it pop! Well that’s all I will share for now, enjoy teasing your eyes with my seared figs, raspberries, reggiano cheese and spring mix salad with a port vinaigrette.
