I love playing around with African food recipes and tweaking dishes to suit our clients at Samantha's.
In creating a Nigerian brunch menu, we get to celebrate our own cuisine but in a modern way infusing flavours of other cultures, ideas from African cuisine but still very much done in the Nigerian way.
Asian style braised duck legs infused with Chinese flavours.
This was incredibly good
I remember how I felt making this dish and eating it too.
Asian flavours are deliciously exciting, the sensory experience it gives is almost indescribable.
Combining tangy with something sweet, spicy, salty, bitter and sour is the perfect symphony.
Let’s cook, connect and share the gift of food with our families and friends.
I absolutely love cooking and how food brings people together.
