Taking Back Sunday Lunch

Caribbean Sunday Lunch were essentially feasts. It was usually the one day everyone had off and people could actually relax, however there was no time for relaxing. The house must be cleaned and the food must be cooked. Everything usually got finished well after lunch but by that time there would be a feeling of…

How To Start Appreciating Wine

Bajans do not come from a grand wine tradition, we are rum drinkers. In countries such as France, Argentina and South Africa people grow up on wine, as a result they have a deep appreciation for wine, while we treasure spirits. Wine goes hand in hand with fine dinning, which can make it even more…

A Composting Journey.

Composting. Seems like a big topic. Gardening on a whole sometimes feels so overwhelming that it doesn’t seem worth it. Just buy all your food at the grocery store and don’t worry about it too much.
