But first a little background on Ms. Cousins. Per her website, Chef it Yourself:
Being from Latin America and of Black descent, my cooking thumbprint has a Latin-Caribbean flair. Following on my mom’s footsteps, I too love the challenge of other cuisine styles, flavors and techniques. This means my cooking range is all over the map, you will not be bored. But the most important thing I want you to take away from visiting my blog, is that delicious food doesn’t have to be complicated and isn’t exclusive to Cordon Bleu graduates. WE can do it. YOU will have fun doing it. LET’S do it together.

I know Chef Cousins is using these Secret Suppers as a way for her to try out this profession before taking the full leap. I give her kudos for not letting obstacles get in her way and finding ways to do it in a way that she is comfortable. I would highly recommend that she try to find venues to serve more guests and perhaps hire some temporary service staff to open this up to a broader audience--perhaps investors who would help her get a small bistro up and running. Based on the results of what we enjoyed that evening, Chef Cousins really loves cooking great food for great folks and exemplifies one of my ideals here: Great Food and Great Folks in the Houston area and Beyond. Thank you, Chef Cousins for a lovely dinner and giving me the opportunity to share this with my readers.
Eat Happy, Y'all!!!
