    Robert Nasser is the owner of Dinner Done's Centreville, VA store. Robert has been involved in the kitchen in one form or another from age 6. A past owner of 2 restaurants in Venezuela, he knows what good food is made of: great ingredients and great recipes. Concern for the way our eating habits are changing, especially since more and more households are extremely busy places, played a big part in his decision to license a Dinner Done store in Virginia from his brother and sister in law in Florida. Filling the need for healthy meals, while getting families back around the dinner table is a major reason for Dinner Done's success. His international background and love of travel have given Robert a unique perspective on foods and ingredients, and how best to marry them to obtain new tastes and flavors. When coming up with new recipes for his customers, Robert can draw upon this experience to enable them to try new ideas without sacrificing taste or nutrition. A self confessed recipe book addict, he has accumulated over 50 cookbooks in 3 languages. These rarely stay on a shelf, as he uses them almost daily!

    Hello! Im Robert Nassar from Dinner Done in Centerville, Virginia. Ive been involved in cooking for quite some time. I have owned Dinner Done now for almost a year-and-a-half and Ive had a couple of restaurants as well. Today, were going to talk about my favorite salad, Caesar salad. First were going to show you how to make the dressing and then were going to put it all together for you. I dont know about you but, it used to be quite a few years ago when you went into a good restaurant and ordered a Caesar salad, a waiter would come up to the table with all the makings for the Caesar salad, make the dressing and put the salad together at the table for you. Unfortunately, nowadays most restaurants offer you romaine lettuce with some dressing out of a bottle and the dressing has nothing to do with the real Caesar salad dressing. So, what youre going to need for this is a pretty lengthy list of ingredients. You are going to need an egg, you are going to need oil, Dijon mustard, you are going to need Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, lime or lemon, garlic, parmesan cheese, romaine lettuce, anchovies; dont forget the anchovies, crumbled bacon and croutons. So, lets go ahead and get started.
