A Review of the Barbados Food and Rum Festival 2019.

In 2018 I was very vocal about not going to The Barbados Food and Rum Festival (you can read that article here). As a result, I made a serious effort to attend the 2019 Food and Rum Festival. I went to almost every night. The only night I missed was the ‘Gourmet Safari’ which is…

We are planning a trip to Trinidad and Tobago. I used to visit frequently but I haven’t been there in years. They have some of the best Caribbean food in the region. It is goin to be a blast getting back into it. We need recommendations on things too try that might not be common….

Travel: Florida for Thanksgiving.

Hey guys, We will be traveling very soon to Florida for Thanksgiving. Anyone have any tips on foods we need to try? It would be great to really dig into some local flavor. We spent Thanksgiving there last year but it didn’t really live up to expectations so it would be awesome to do it up…

First Thoughts on The 2019 Food and Rum Festival Events in Barbados.

This is the tenth anniversary of the Food and Rum Festival in Barbados. It is now a decade old. I’ve been going to these events every year as long as I am in the country.  I’ve been to food demonstrations, rum tastings and food events. This year feels smaller than past years. This year’s events…

Please Visit Mrs. Moore in St. Kitts

Seeing as how most of the food on a Carnival Cruise is free, it is very rare that I will pay for anything outside. St. Kitts is different. You must visit Mrs. Moore: Eat To Live Snackette. If you are lucky enough to be wandering around the sea port in St. Kitts. To the left…

We will be taking a Caribbean Cruise. Can’t wait to destroy those all you can eat buffets. Any tips for how to handle cruise life or food to make sure we eat?

Getting to Know Mark Twain Through Food.

Full disclosure, I have never read a Mark Twain book. My knowledge of the famous writer begins with the fact that he wrote Tom Sawyer and ends with, ‘I’m pretty sure he was American.’ However, I love getting to know someone based off of their eating habits and based on the evidence put forth by…

Hanoi’s Hippest Restaurant: Chops.

Chops is a testimony to the fact that the hipster movement is real. Found in the heart of Hanoi, Vietnam this fantastic food outlet could be at home in any metropolitan city. The burgers are homemade, the beer is craft and the vibe is cool. The truth is, there are probably about 100 reasons why…

My Quest to Eat KFC in Phuket, Thailand

It all started when one of my workmates casually mentioned that a lot of places in Thailand deliver. To understand my surprise and happiness, you have to understand two things at this point: I come from Barbados, where very few places deliver. I was pretty homesick. I would have killed for some crappy, familiar, ‘western’…
