A group of lucky bloggers and writers had the pleasure of dining with instructions by Olga Valentina at her private home in Venice, California.
We were greeted by Olga dressed in a fashionable festive outfit for the occasion. Fruity cocktails were served that were decadently created to satisfy ones taste palette, as well as a variety of delicious eats, including, organic roasted duck, the most amazing grilled cheese sandwiches dipped in a decilious spicy tomato soup and many other appetizers to eat to your heart's content.
"No need to fear" is her motto. Without training, her kitchen is a place where you can come and have fun trying new food experiments. Valentina shows you a new way to use that bag of frozen peas in the freezer. Add frozen peas, mint, salt & pepper in a food processor then just push blend and in seconds you will have a pea bruschetta, which she serves on a toasted piece of ciabatta bread. While this recipe looked simple it still requires a little of Olga magic.
"Don't make the kitchen a prison" states Valentina. She is inspired to cook more lately, "I got a boyfriend and ooh this guy likes to eat I have to win his heart!"
