If you’re a foodie, most likely you were like me on Tuesday night in front of the television or mobile device watching the newest episode of Chopped on The Food Network.
This episode was especially exciting as the theme was “Cooking Caribbean” and featured three chefs from the Caribbean. Chef Keisha Bocage, originally from Trinidad, now Owner and Executive Chef of Bocage Catering in Houston; Chef Brandon Soverall also from Trinidad, also working in Houston as Chef de Cuisine at Triniti Restaurant and finally Chef Andre Fowles, native of Jamaica and Sous chef at Miss Lilly’s in NYC.
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”.
