We got the opportunity to sample this wonderful dish prepared by Rena the previous weekend where we celebrated the birthday of their son Joshua and also their wedding anniversary with her husband Clary who is a very close and dear friend of mine. There were lots of other dishes which ofcourse I will put up here once I get the receipes from Rena.
