Sunday Brunch at Fanatic with Chef Khalid Mohammed (Chaud)

Sunday Brunch Goodie Bag
Sundays will never be the same thanks to Trinichow and her Sunday Brunch series at Fanatic Kitchen Studio.

It takes a special event to get me out of the house on a Sunday. I NEVER leave the house on a Sunday.

NEVER.

But the combination of brunching with Chef Khalid Mohammed of Chaud/Chaud Cafe, and the fact that Tuesday is a holiday and thus I could risk a bit of Sunday fatigue saw me on this very very hot Sunday, heading up the highway to Fanatic Kitchen for brunch.

I don't need to get into too much detail except to say the food was remarkable as expected. The menu included:

The bread board - Homemade coconut bake and salt butter



Red Snapper Crudo with Saltfish Accra, Green Fig Chips and Tomato Choka Vinaigrette. Sorry, no photo.

Sancoche: Corn Soup with Pig's Trotters Croquetta and Provision



Boneless Stew Oxtail and Dumplings, Plantain Crema and Organic Poi Bhagi



Shrimp Creole, Coo Coo, Callaloo Fondue and Crispy Ochro (skipped this as you all know already I loathe callaloo and anything with ochroes)



Sunday Roast Chicken Dougla with Cassava Risotto - this was brilliant!




BBQ Pork Belly a la Valencia - gorgeous looking and tasting.



Geera Crusted Lamb Chop with Dhal



Cocobel Chocolate Delice with Organic Soular Cocoa Nib Ice Cream and Espresso Cream - winner!!!



Caramelised Banana Tarte Fin - I passed on this as I hate bananas but everyone who had it had seconds.



Sweetbread Biscotti - a nice local twist to one of my faves treats.


A Sunday well spent though the diet took a major, major hit. I had 3 glasses of pinot grigio, 2 glasses of sangria, a great mimosa at the door and I am stuffed from all the goodness. But the company and the culinary magic were well worth it.

    1. I wish I liked bananas but maybe it was for the best. The chocolate dessert was more than enough for my hips! So delicious. It was all pretty good. Laps this week! lol

    1. Ah yes, the goodie bag. There was a bottle of guava bbq sauce from Chaud in a speciality bottle, chocolate from Cocobel, some dried cacao nibs as used in the dessert, and the chance to get a discount off on wine from All Italian who sponsored the wonderful wines.

  6. A brunch like this would get me out of the house on a Sunday too. I wouldn't mind a serving of that Roast Chicken Dougla with Cassava Risotto.

  7. My mouth is watering. That sweet bread looks just like my mother's. This Caribbean Gal would've left there swollen from eating up everything. Looks like a great reason to leave the house on Sunday. Thanks for sharing.

    Stopping by from SITS!
