We are happy to announce that Chef Jasbir of Mandair Farms will be joining our Long Table Dinner once again! To get to know her personal tastes and creations a bit more she has kindly answered some questions for us.
What is your favourite thing to cook right now?
Nothing is my favourite. I like to make something new each time, experiment with different things and see how it turns out.
What is the first dish you cooked?
The first thing I ever made was dhal and roti.
What is your favourite vegetable from the market this week?
The tomatoes from the Okanagan farmers, Hill Top.
Best tip for home cooks?
Make sure that you have all the ingredients for what you are going to make but also have a well stocked spice cabinet.
Tell us something about your long table dinner dish.
It is going to be a samosa chaat. It is a spin off from your typical indian Chaat Appetizer. Some ingredients will be fresh lettuce, diced fresh cucumber tomato, and onions topped with plain yogurt and my famous tamarind chutney.
