Chef Pagoda’s 10 Course Meal II

Once again, we were invited to experience Chef Pagoda’s 10 course dinner. And for lack of a better word – it was AMAZING. The amount of prep and thought that went into each plating and flavor profile was immense, and the outcome was encroyable! I truly hope someone buys Aaron a restaurant asap so the world can experience his gift.

    1. crap cone with avocado etc was really different. 2. beef wellington sliders & beet chips great. 3. scallop with eggplant & sauce I could see melting in my mouth. 4 tuna sashimi sounded really different & would like to try. 5. pork loin & cheese with fig sauce looked amazing. 6.New Orleans crepe sounded soooo good. 7.Looking forward to trying this version of your knocchi, looks delish. 8. sea bass combo is out of this world 9-10 sweet potato dessert & cheese cake with fruit looked scrumptious. I love your creative cooking style & how delicious everything turns out. I especially like seeing how happy you are when you’re cooking.

    Love You, MOM
