Berbere rubbed Dry aged ribeye with oxtail - bone marrow bordelaise, foie gras cornbread stuffing, charred cabbage with smoked carrot yogurt, red bean sofrito, and Carolina gold rice.

"#nofilter my dessert tonight: fresh peaches, braised sultanas, anise hyssop, lemon verbena, toasted oats. Love this country's produce. I picked most of this 20 feet from the kitchen @eatingcityplatform @beardfoundation"

"My Jollof rice for @nokidhungry Seattle. Stop debating whether Nigerian or Ghanaian is better. Mine is. Curry whipped ricotta, confit spring onions, pickled pearl onion petals, red sauce, and spicy jollof. 🇳🇬 🇬🇭"
