Chef Trevanne Donegal

You may be more familiar with Trevanne Donegal and The Layer Cake, but after returning from further Cuisine and Patisserie training at the well established Le Cordon Bleu in London, she has been building her dream kitchen and has rebranded with the name, Sear 274!

Here is just a touch of what she has been up to since she has been back. Absolutely salivating!

Look out for her and one of my other faves, Christina Simonitsch at Martell & GH Mumm’s booth at the Table Talk Jamaica Observer Food Awards tomorrow night at the Devon House!

Trevanne will have Dark Chocolate Martell Cognac Caramel Truffles 😍

Lunch from Chef Dave Paul!

I regretfully admit that I have had Chef Dave Paul’s contact information and Lunch menu from last summer and just decided to use it yesterday. Why? It’s so hard for me to decide what to eat, much less from the day before. I am also still working or just settling in by the time the order is to go in.

Last year, Lunch orders had to be in by 10pm the night before and currently, the deadline is even earlier. Orders need to go in to Chef by 8pm the night before. I am sure this is how he keeps his system structured, so it’s either you make it work for you or you don’t.

A set menu is used daily, which is updated from time to time. Customized lunch orders are welcomed. Customers have options of Seafood, Chicken, Pastas, Wraps, Salads and Vegetarian meals.

It is stated that Punctual delivery is not guaranteed. So even though I requested an 11:30am delivery, I stated that it could not be later than 12 noon. My lunch arrived at 12 noon.

Presentation and branding were impressive. Communication was also effective.

Chef Dave Paul’s Oven Roasted Chicken with Jerk BBQ sauce, a side of Sweet Potato and Pumpkin Mash and side Salad – $900JMD inclusive of Delivery in Kingston

I asked for light Jerk BBQ sauce and got just that. It gave the tender and well-seasoned Chicken a zesty flavour. The Sweet Potato and Pumpkin Mash was satisfactory. Sometimes healthy is boring and I took one of the healthier side options, so didn’t expect much from it as a side. The raw vegetables in the side Salad were fresh and I loved the added crunch and sweetness from a few cuts of gimbilyn (a.k.a carambola/star fruit) and raisins.

To top things off, lunch came with a moist towelette. I am guessing that Chef Paul knows that his Chicken was saucy and finger-licking good.

Awesome Recipe for a Meatless Monday!

Oven Roasted Plantains stuffed with Black Beans, Pepper Jack Cheese and Cilantro Sauce

This is a smart, tasty and spicy idea for a Meatless Monday! Awesome way to switch things up for the Vegetarian diet. Note that the Black Beans provide additional fiber.

To go completely healthy, you can substitute the Pepper Jack Cheese with Borden’s Fat-Free Pepper Jack Cheese that can be found at Wal-Mart or with another spicy, flavourful Fat-Free Cheese of your choice based on availability.

Check out The Kitchenista’s blog for the full Recipe!

Check out this Christmas Dinner in July!

I have been following Angela Davis on Instagram, who is a self-taught home cook, recipe developer, private chef and author located in Maryland, D.C.

She had a Sunday Dinner Party two weekends ago, titled ‘Christmas in July’. It was also hosted by Clinton Mitchell and his wife. There were 12 guests, who were a mixture of followers, friends and clients that hit it off quickly and had rave reviews, using the hashtag, #KitchenistaSundays on Instagram.

The Dinner was the Feast of 7 Dishes with an Italian Seafood theme. The prelude included Crostinis with anchovy butter and radishes, an Italian Seafood salad, a Vegetable salad and stuffed Clams.

A slow roasted pistachio crusted Salmon followed for the main course. A guest said it was the best Salmon they have ever had.

All of that was topped off with Roasted figs along with whipped goat cheese and a Lemon Olive Oil Cake.

The Kitchenista also did a live Pasta making demo that streamed on twitter. You can check her website link below for more information, get added to her mailing list for upcoming events and check out some of her recipes as well.

For all my Suga Bears in DC, don’t wait till I get there. Send this Kitchenista an email so you can taste her magic because there will be more Kitchenista Sundays!
