Explaining the meal

Another really great suggestion I got was to make sure I explain each of the dishes we serve. Before I would just send something out. Now, I love to talk about the work we do. Whether it's at home, or at Okoze, where I work. Jason, the owner sends me out to tables sometimes to personally serve them and walk through our thought process for the meal.

I think last night's dinner party had some good examples of getting questions answered and helping our guests understand what was the thinking behind the flavor and how best to enjoy it.

Thanks to Jason Rosete for illustrating some of that. Jason has done a piece on my work at Okoze before that can be found in Facebook. I really like his photo work and hope he continues to snap photos at dinner parties.
