Back in July, I received an email from a student of the South African University (UNISA), her name is Mashudu Ibeag. She mentioned that she was in her last year as a Gastronomy student and that she was doing her final project about Mexican cuisine, for which she needed to write and prepare a 3 course menu. She even mentioned to me how nervous she was about this project. After many back and forth emails, I was able to give her some ideas on what to make. I took into consideration the ingredients available to her in South Africa, the time needed to prepare the dishes ahead of time, the complexity of the recipes, and her own ideas that she suggested. In the end I sent her a menu that she was able to adjust to her own needs and preferences.
The good thing was that she had a lot of time to test and prepare her dishes ahead of time before her presentation in October.
