So in my earlier post about seven things about me, I wrote about how I do not know how to cook aesthetically (may my teeth no fall comot!), no matter how hard I try. I said something about how I was trying to improve on this. By the time I am done cooking, I am usually too tired to then start “dressing” the food. However, with time, I have realized that the “dressing” of the food is almost just as important as the taste. Though I am not Japanese, I have been consciously putting this into effect. With 9jaFOODie of “Modern African Cuisine” challenging and “molete-ing” (for my Ibadan peeps) to make an aesthetically pleasing food, and LohiO of “Lohi’s Creations”, being another source of “cookspiration”,
I present to you……..**drum rolls**
