Summer fruits are in abundance right now in the Caribbean. Whether you are a local or visitor don’t miss out on one of the best aspects of island living – eating native fruits, vegetables and spices.

Nassau has no shortage of sandy-white beaches and most are well used by tourists and locals alike. One spot that seldom gets the media attention in “Best Beaches in Nassau” lists, but is a local favourite is Montagu Beach, nested along the eastern end of Bay Street on the North coast of New Providence.
I was determined to eat Guava Duff today. It’s been a while since I last had any and, for some reason, I woke up this morning with a singular mission: find, eat and enjoy a bowl of warm-creamy-sweet duff. That, would make this a successful day.

When living on any island that attracts millions of visitors every year, locals tend to shy away from the tourist hubs. But I’ve discovered that we’re missing out on some great finds.

If you’re looking for a great way to avoid the tourist traps of any island and really want to experience the country’s culture, history and cuisine, take a food tour. It’s what I did in Nassau, The Bahamas with Tru Bahamian Food Tours. In three and a half hours I learned a bit of history, saw great architecture and, of course, ate some of the best food The Bahamas has to offer. Ranked as the number one thing to do in The Bahamas on TripAdvisor, once you’ve experienced it, there is no doubt as to why. Tru Bahamian Food Tours offers not only a culinary taste of The Bahamas, but also a history lesson, with talks of Pirates, Al Capone, The Duke of Windsor with a little bit of Jay-Z and Beyonce thrown in for extra flavour.
