EventApril’s Class: Flavours of the Caribbean
In April we often find ourselves pining for Spring to arrive up here in the cold North, and wishing we were perhaps in the Caribbean somewhere. So, I have created this class to bring the Caribbean to us! As I’ve spent a number of years in the Bahamas as a school teacher, the recipes will be closely linked with the Bahamian style and flavour palette, with a few shout-outs to Jamaica and Mexico.
We will indulge in rich Gouda macaroni bites with a bit of kick, and make ceviche using our own walleye from Eat the Fish. The main course will feature fantastic rock lobster tails with exotic mango and jicama slaw and classic Bahamian peas’n’rice, perhaps the most popular side dish on the islands. And finally, we’ll end our evening in the tropics with classic rum cakes with coconut cream.
Local producers featured this month are: Thunder Oaks Cheese Farm, Eat the Fish, Prime Gelato, Veg-e-tate Market Garden, Heartbeat hot sauce, Belluz (superiorseasons.localfoodmarketplace.com)
