Your favourite brands at the Chef Dish food festival

It was a hot Sunday afternoon; we had just left the church. Surprisingly, the weeklong almost-daily rain and the dreaded Lagos traffic decided to take a break. So it was a really short ride and in less than an hour I was at the great outdoors for the Chef Dish Food Fest. When you love food as much as I do, you do not let an opportunity like this pass you by. My face lit up thinking about my favorite food vendors I would get to meet again. Additionally, the thought of trying out new dishes would surely bring a smile to the face of any adventurer. I set out a bit early and ended up getting there before the event started. It did not bother me, as I had the chance to watch vendors set up. If you were stuck at home once again, here is what you missed.

Burger crush

One of the best things about my job is creating new recipes and feeding my ever restless mind. It’s really one of those a-ha moments! This burger which has no name yet, focuses more on the beef and the tower of onion rings. Cooked to medium and simply seasoned with some good quality salt and black pepper.

A burger with no layers is a pretty boring burger.

To make a great tasting burger or should I say great tasting food it’s about the attention put into the quality of ingredients. I don’t skimp on food. Even though running a food business/restaurant has high costs and low margins. It’s what makes customers come back. The attention paid to the food you are serving.

Live well, eat well and be happy!
