When Seher told me she wanted a morning tea party to celebrate her birthday, there was only one place I knew would do justice to the menu, Baker and Spice in Dubai! I spoke with Yael Mejia, culinary mastermind behind this wholesome Dubai concept and we collaborated on the perfect selection of food that was appropriate for the occasion. There was plenty of food and enough variety to appeal to all palettes, including eggs, muesli, cured tuna, and fresh fruits. We kept the beverages simple and served cappuccinos and espressos compliments of the Nespresso machine as well as iced citrus tea in mason jars with the colorful striped straws.
This item consists of a couple of new techniques being implemented by the Baker and Spice team. A house cured tuna, thinly shaved and delicately placed on a caper and dill infused home-made cream cheese, nestled on top of griddle toasted english muffins made from scratch. My mouth is watering just writing about it. A unique taste and a unique twist on the original bagel with lox and cream cheese.
The very happy birthday girl and myself hosted a lovely morning for the ladies of Dubai. Seher and I love to throw a good party and between the two of us, we have really raised the bar on the food component for gatherings the city. If anyone ever attends an event at Seher's or mine, whether it's a birthday, BBQ, or Thanksgiving, they know they will be going home with full bellies and big smiles, because that's the motto we stick by! Good food, and plenty of it plus the pleasure of great company including friends and loved ones is the winning combination for an outstanding event.
