We've seen Jennifer Aydin slay the birthday-cake game, but did you know The Real Housewives of New Jersey mama also gives great eggplant? It's true: In a throwback video that celebrated World Food Day (which, apparently, falls on October 16), Jennifer shared her recipe for Turkish stuffed eggplants. And in the process, she shed a light on her secret past.
"Thought it would be fun to share with you [a] traditional Turkish dish!" she wrote, to caption the clip. She added: "(Yes I was a TV chef.)" Way to bury the lede, Jennifer! Not only was she a TV chef, she was a pretty solid one at that.
Watch the clip below to learn a little something about Turkish cuisine, and to see Jennifer in a whole new light.
Watch your back, Tom Colicchio!
