|The Amazing Ms. D in the garden at Ajuem
We were met at the door with warm greetings from one of Anjelica's daughters who was one of waiters. After spending some time getting to know Anjelica's family and friends we sat down and started off with a trio of amuse buche - Black-eyed pea salad, pickled beet and deviled egg. They were all delicious. Next we were offered our choice of fresh coconut, tamarind or passion fruit mixed with cachaça. These were fantastic drinks. For those who didn't want alcohol there was fresh limon or watermelon juice.
Our main course was a bacalao (cod-fish) salad with shrimp, cabbage, olives, and onions served on a bed of rice and mashed potatoes with a garnish of cooked okra. Now I am not a fish eater, but this was a excellent dish - tasty and well seasoned. The potatoes were creamy and shrimp was fresh. Dessert was a freshly shredded coconut candy.
