Interview with a Foodie – @FoodwithDom

Hi Guys,

I’m back again and with something a little different (yaaay), I had the great opportunity to interview Dominique aka FoodwithDom, a fellow food blogger and Youtuber with an amazing story!

A little bit about Dominique

Dominique had the fantastic opportunity to be part of  the Culinary Genius series played on ITV, a cooking competition created by Gordon Ramsay himself. Dominique did not win the competition. Fortunately, standing out during her time there, she was invited to join the US version of the show only as an extra.

However with her inability to blend in, she had another invitation was handed to her, but this time to compete again on Culinary Genius based in states, going on to win the whole American series!

As a sign to continiue her passion with food, her blogs captures the beauty of her colourful and vibrant food. Dominques is definately one to watch!

Some Fun Facts about her!

What are your passions outside cooking?

 

Travelling, I love travelling. Food has put me out of my shell, but travelling had put me out of my shell even more, meeting different people and languages.

How many languages do you speak?

I think I speak about four. I speak Yoruba, English, Spanish Japanese. I started a little bit of Italian and Korean.  I love languages a lot!

Favourite beverage to drink?

White wine but I also love a good gin and tonic. For a cocktail, it has to be a mojito. Absolutely, or a cosmopolitan. I like a lot of drinks.

Sweet or savoury?

Savoury

Store Bought Pizza Dough – My Experience

pizza base 2

This is a story all about how my kitchen got flipped turned upside down… (fresh prince reference..get it?!)

My quest for months if not years to perfect homemade pizza has been in my heart, wanting and desiring. To no longer be the captive of overpriced and overfilling pizza delivery systems but have the freedom and the creativity to create my own pizza, from scratch at home.

Thanks to Soughdough Pizza Base by Jus Rol I was able to create my dream pizza, or so I thought…

Yes, I know it looks delicious, perfect almost, and it was true. It was but horror came shortly after, with my attempt to remove the pizza base from the cutting board, it..it..it was stuck! Noo!!! (insert horrified/crying emoji). My heart was in disbelief, how could this happen, I did everything right (apart from putting the dough on a tray with a non-stick baking sheet).  With the disacceptance (not a word) of the reality, I scrapped the falling apart, holey, mushy pizza into the frying pan. Let it cooked it for a while before placing in the oven.

It was a really fun experience doing this! No hesitations to do this again!

Pizza Topping;

  • Fresh Basil
  • Mozzarella
  • Dried oregano
  • Black pepper
  • Dried Fennel (tasted amazing!)
  • Herbes de Provence
  • Olive Oil
  • Chilli flakes

The final results:
