Chef Brings a Taste of Panama to Austin edit

This has been a marvelous trip! Austin is a beautiful City and I have been delighted to cook here. I will sure blog later about my experiences, but now I am leaving you with this review that Kay Marley posted in her Dancin' Down Congress Avenue Blog: Chef Brings a Taste of Panama to Austin. Thank you Kay!

"One mouthful and I fell in love with a country I’ve never visited. A coconut explosion of lime, mint, cilantro and lemongrass marinated tilapia that has woken up my taste buds to the wonders of Panamanian food. The baked banana leaf wrapped fish, paired with rice and black beans and accompanied by a baby greens salad with coffee vinaigrette was the main attraction of an evening this week with Chef Melissa De Leon." Read the complete review by visiting Kay's blog...

I have posted some photos at My Facebook, and I will be posting more soon...so stay tuned!

The flavor combinations you talk about sound wonderful.  I’d sure like to try a few Panamanian dishes.

Congratulations on the fantastic write-up!  I never would’ve thought of a coffee vinaigrette.  I can’t wait to try it!
