  • Where to get THE BEST food in Senegal

    I recently returned home from an eight-day vacation in Senegal, West Africa. I booked this trip last April with a travel company who promotes group trips. I didn’t know anyone on the trip but left with lifelong friends.  One of the main reasons I decided to book Senegal was because of the food. I knew there would be a ton of fresh, local seafood and the fact that jollof rice…

  • Where to get the BEST Brunch in Bermuda

    Brunch is a staple in the Bermudian culture, as I shared last week. And I feel like every week, someone is asking where to go for brunch. I guarantee I’ll get on Facebook tomorrow and someone will be asking about brunch.  But here’s the thing – not all brunches are created equal so it’s very difficult to recommend brunch without knowing preferences. There are buffets, a la carte, set menus,…

  • Night Brunch at St. Regis

    Brunch is a staple in Bermuda culture. Every Sunday, friends and family dress up and head to their favourite establishment to enjoy brunch, whether it’s a classic buffet, family style or even a la carte. Brunch is a ritual here.  So what happens when a restaurant offers a night brunch concept on a Friday evening? It sells out in a matter of days.  On Friday night, I had the pleasure…

  • Rum Swizzle Taste Test: Part Two

    We are back with our Rum Swizzle Taste Test part two! Just to refresh your memory, Bermudians love to drink and Rum Swizzle is the most popular cocktail on the island. Everyone has their own special recipe and usually, the recipe isn’t shared.  Rum Swizzle is basically a rum punch, but everyone makes it their own special way. I don’t make it anymore (too many ingredients), but I do like…

  • Intrepid at Hamilton Princess

    With the culinary scene being as small as it is in Bermuda, it’s always exciting when a new restaurant opens. And when that restaurant is high end with incredible food and service, it’s exhilarating.  Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to visit the new restaurant at Hamilton Princess, Intrepid. I was a huge fan of Marcus’ over the years so was disappointed when that closed.  But, once I heard…
