I’m Back!

My fellow foodies I have to apologize for my absence from this site. I want to say it was down to technical problems, however no worker should blame their tools…especially a tool like wordpress support who are absolute geniuses! I have been away but very, very busy: several supperclubs, food articles and catering opportunities later I have soo much to share with you. 2019 has already kicked off to be a fantastic year with me being featured in Thomas Cook Holiday Magazine reviewing the growing trend of craft beers and wine vineyards in the Caribbean – Yes hot humid Caribbean now has its first winery! check out the link for details.
