Mamuje eats

Hey guys,

By popular demand I have decided to share some pictures of the delicious meals I have cooked over the past few weeks. I love to cook. When I have the urge to cook a recipe, until the food is on the plate. I have no peace. I find cooking therapeutic and rewarding too. Especially when you get it right. There is also a lot of highs and lows associated with cooking. Sometimes you botch a recipe you have tried out too many times.... sometimes you try the most difficult cooking technique once and you get it right.

So.....enjoy :-)

I made these red velvet cupcakes on Friday and garnished with Tobleron cubes :)

Smoked mackerel pate and Melba toast

Panna Cotta. A cheap Italian dessert.

As an Edo girl, Bini Owo and plantain is in order.

My bell pepper pizza

My chocolate profiteroles.

Meringue basket with a raspberry coulis. It tastes as yummy as it looks.

Leek and Ham Quiche. I am not a fan of Quiches but I make them :)

I made this Chocolate Roulade, No I didnt steal the photo from google images.

Banga Soup (Just in case you are in doubt about my local cuisine prowess. lol)
I guess this means I can cook. :-D

I hope you enjoyed looking at the pictures as I enjoyed making them and putting smiles on peoples faces. My website is coming soon, which I will share with you guys and I am definitely making a career out of food. The passion is definitely too strong to ignore :-)

Ginger said...

Just Wow! you've got talent with a 'T'

p.s. where do you get your ingredients?

Mamuje said...

Thanks guys.

Ginger- The same ole question. Where do you get your ingredients from? Well... I guess them from supermarkets here. Sometimes I get them from the market. Now that I bake a lot, I get my better from the market.

For things like menrigues and all...it needs only eggwhites basically. I improvise...as we cannot get double cream so I use what we have in the market. Full cream milk.

For the panna cotta. I use gelatine that I get from the supermarket. I use yogurt instead of double cream and my guests love it. The rest you can pretty much figure out.

When someone loves to cook they need to invest in pots, pans/ dishes and the right utensils and cockery. There is no going around that one oh. :-D
