Celebrity Chef and Masterchef Judge Benny Maskwameng put on a fantastic lunch recently showcasing the flavors of South Africa; his first in the United States. The meal was held downtown at the new IAC Brookfield and it almost felt like Chef Benny had been cooking there for years. His infectious smile and booming personality were an absolute pleasure to watch as he created some of his favorite dishes like this Seafood Delight with tempura prawn tail, stuffed calamari, crayfish with avocado mayo and mussel with lemon-dill veloute.
Pan Seared Lamb Loin with red wine jus atop sugar beans, lentils and green peas with roasted butternut squash puree and potato croquettes.
And to finish a deconstructed Amarula Milk Tart with glazed fresh berries and a mixed berry sorbet.
