Marcus @ Baha Mar - FCC Review #011

I’m not going to bitch about my restaurant fatigue anymore; I also love a good story so here we go. There is an all around great spirit that up until recently I was just Instagram friends with. Malēnē (@myyounglao); is a chef, writer, a sommelier and owner of some pretty fire Chuck Taylor’s. I had the pleasure, at her invite to dine at the mock dinner service for Nassau’s newest restaurant. Tucked away on the waterfront of the Grand Hyatt campus (head for the beach, and then

FCC Review #009 - Cafe Boulud

Let me paint a picture for you as I sit here listening to Si tu vois ma mere by Sidney Bechet. I knew the minute I found out who the Head Chef was that this restaurant was going to be nothing short of immaculate. Refined, classic yet provocative. You don’t earn Michelin stars by bullshitting your way around the kitchen. You become an alchemist- a culinary chemist balancing the elements of technique, flavour, presentation, and uniqueness. Ordinarily, I wouldn’t have had the be

Decanted! CWS Tour De Vino - February

Decanted! CWS Tour De Vino - February I hadn’t thought about making a frosé with the Pratsch Organic Rosé from Austria, but this is why I do the writing and Marv does the mixing I guess. If ever you wanted a drink that tastes like summertime; Pratsch Rosé + Angostura Watermelon Rum (I prefer the Sorrel) a little ice and a blender is all you need to recreate Marv’s concoction!

Decanted! CWS Tour De Vino - January

I think it is hilarious that one of the guests in the January installment of the CWS Tour De Vino virtual tasting series said that his partner had eaten all of the food prepared, and so he ended up only having wine on the night with no pairing. Literally, been laughing at that and many other funny moments since this past Thursday. Read FCC review #005 for the breakdown of what was in January’s wine box. As expected, the Chardonnay came through again and made a big second impr

FCC Review #006 - Louis & Steen's Market Orleans

Louis & Steen’s soft opening showed their piece de resistance this past Monday in the form of Market Orleans. Anywhere that makes me feel like I’ve left the monotony of Nassau and been transported into another city is a winner. If you can take me to one of my favourite cities, that’s even better. I remember with fondness my trips to New Orleans. There is something about the negro-creole-cajun trifecta that is culturally kinetic; everything has rhythm and motion, colour and fu
