Absolutely loved the food. It was our first time trying Surinamese and we fell in love with it. Wish there were restaurants offering this food in London, so we could have it more often.
Jessica was fantastic!. The other people who had signed up for the same date dropped out. I told her, we could reschedule if she preferred, but she honored her commitment.
As a home cook, I know how much effort is involved in cooking up a large menu and its easier if you are cooking for a large group rather than just a couple. We were very impressed by her commitment and the food.
Super delicious and I still dream of that pineapple upside down cake (this from someone who doesn't normally like fruits and hates them in her dessert)
She even gave us a bottle of her home made marinade to try and the resulting chicken and pork were delicious
