Oakville’s Chef Stemo affirmed his culinary versatility with a very well-put-together Turntable Soup. Chef Stemo, who has careered as a DJ and as a pilot, refuses to be pigeonholed as a Chef. Instead of specializing in one culinary domain, he strives for culinary flexibility and versatility, whether he is making trademarked Construction BBQ Sauce, his World Famous Rotational Cake, or his Turntable Soup.
An intermediary delivered the generous and fresh batch of Turntable soup to FoodBozo staff on May 22nd. The sample was well packed in a paper grocery bag. The soup was sealed as per industry standards, and the seal’s integrity was maintained with the help of careful placement in the bag.
The soup featured a medley of vegetables, spices, and herbs. A colourful array of ingredients, namely purple beets, orange carrots, green beans, and colourful potatoes gave the soup a visual boost, providing a nice aesthetic feel.
Chef Stemo displayed a keen sense of texture when he ensured each of the ingredients was individually cooked to ensure a texture that allows for optimal taste and ease of consumption. Each ingredient held its own as a well prepared and enjoyable component of the soup that could be enjoyed independently of the other ingredients. Despite this independent streak for each element, each ingredient played an important role to brining the various elements of the Turntable soup together.
It was a pleasure discovering each element in isolation as well as in chorus with the other elements and ingredients. Beets paired well with carrots, the broth paired very well with the beans. This helped prove how the Turntable soup’s range of ingredients can be brought together in a dynamic capacity.
Unexpectedly, short moments after each spoonful, a hint of spice tickled the throat. This light kick provided a nice finale from each spoonful, as if to say “Congratulations, you have enjoyed another taste of me, your yummy soup! You, my friend, are invited to try more of me!”.
With this gem of a soup now firmly under his belt, Chef Stemo is showing very strong potential with his burgeoning culinary enterprise.
