BBC: British Bankers Club

From the outset, the BBC looks like a pub style retaurant. With Chef Tim and Chef Paul at the helm, though the BBC is a shining star in the making.

Take nine women, a couple digital and 1 video camera, add a commercial kitchen and two chefs and you get...a Starry Eyed Foodi adventure.

Spoons and a box of love made for a delightful start to a feast! We started with cheesecake from the fabulous Anti Cupcake Co, my personal fave being the coconut. I could easily picture it with a passionfruit or pineapple coulis for a bit of color...mmmm...! Thanks, girl!

Chef Paul created a seared tuna sashimi salad with daikon and an onion soy vinagrette. The tuna is perfect, melting in the mouth, the vinagrette a beautiful melange of flavor. If one could only eat tuna everyday for the rest of their lives, it would be best like this. No really. I could definitely eat this everyday!

Chef Tim rubs black pepper, salt and coridander on steak and after letting them rest, sears them to serve on a bed of wild arugula.The steak is perfectly cooked and made even more gorgeous with the addition of thin, crispy fennel and shaved truffle.

Then the piece de resitance: bread pudding with whiskey suace. You gotta love a meal that begins and ends with dessert!

This was the first of many such events, and with chefs and company like these, its not to be missed! It is amazing to be a part of such a diverse and amazing group of women who, share and support each other!
