We are HUGE fans of Vice Media’s food-focused channel “Munchies“ and one of our favourite shows is “F*ck That’s Delicious“ with Chef-slash-Rapper-slash-Mr. Wonderful Action Bronson. So it was a treat to see this great video of the self-titled “Human Highlight Reel” himself doing it up at last year’s inaugural NyamJam Festival in Jamaica.
Everyone’s gearing up for Carnival season throughout the Caribbean ensuring bodies are “tight” for costumes and fete outfits. And while we at Eat The Caribbean love a great fete, we are truly looking forward to all of the great food, wine and rum festivals scheduled.
We don’t need to worry about getting in shape for these festivals. All we need is our appetites, loose clothing and maybe a designated driver.
This list features just a few food festivals, so it can be considered “ETC’s Food Festival Wish List 2016”.
Marlon James became the first Jamaican to win the prestigious Man Booker Prize for his novel, A Brief History of Seven Killings. The book, set in Kingston Jamaica gives a fictional history of the attempted assassination of Bob Marley.
The 44 year old who once ‘gave up on publishing’ and said ‘Clearly, I’m not meant to write books.’ is now the winner of the leading award for high quality literary fiction written in English.
Congratulations to the author and we look forward to his future works.
Happy 52nd anniversary of Independence, Jamaica! Although we were unable to make it to the festivities in Jamaica, we did the next best thing and celebrated with Jamaicans living in The Bahamas! (FYI: Jamaicans are everywhere!! 🙂 )
The Caribbean and The United States of America have shared a long and prolific history together. The U.S. has always been the symbol of freedom and prosperity to many in the Caribbean. As a result, we all have family and friends who have emigrated north and contributed to the social, political, educational, and economic prosperity of The United States. We’d like to highlight a few famous Americans of Caribbean descent who have done just that.
We’re huge fans of Anthony Bourdain and his Emmy Award winning CNN show “Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown“. We’ve watched every single episode of the show with the Punjab, India episode in this past season being an all time favourite. The episode about Lyon prompted us to ask about school lunches in the Caribbean.
