Toasting spices for the Ethiopian Wat

Teff muffins with caramelized onions!

Here’s what my client Pam had to say about the muffins:

Oh my, the wat with teff muffin (ingenious alternative to injera) was a
gustatory sensation — I was reminded of the scene in the animated movie
Ratatouille (which I saw with my daughter and you may well have missed) in
which the protagonist rat Remi, a consummate foodie and master chef, is
trying to explain to his brother of more pedestrian tastes, what happens
when you hit upon just the right blend of flavors — this is illustrated by
fireworks and kaleidoscopic colors dancing on the screen, and that is how my
mouth felt while I was eating the wat just now.

Just in case there was any doubt about your talent. (-;
