Taking classes from a chef it’s an honor. When the chef acquired  her experience and partially trained with a Michelin chef after graduating from culinary school, it is surreal and I am still pinching myself at the opportunity that was given to me. Being taught personally and cooking with a chef I must admit it is nerve wracking.

Fortunately for me, my friend and Eliane, Chef- owner of La Serviette Blanche and Born To Taste, it is a pure delight to cook and work with. Not only she makes you completely at ease, but she shares her recipes openly and with lots of love. Cooking is her passion. Passion that transcend to you, or in this case, me.

Here tonight is Chef Eliane recipe that I slightly changed. She served it with scallops, I used Prawns. The result was the same: utterly delicious.

I have added the picture of the meal she prepared with scallops in the picture gallery. Either way this dish is fabulous and so easy to make.

A sweet corn puree that will make you want to lick the plate with prawns cooked to perfection and with a hint of heat from the paprika. A small amount of Basil oil all around the dish, it will enhance the flavor.
