Experience a taste of sunshine by visiting Taste of London where the Caribbean Tourism Organisation (CTO) along with Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Grenada, St. Kitts, Trinidad & Tobago and Virgin Holidays will be hosting the Caribbean Pavilion. Taste runs from June 21-24, 2012 and the CTO will be showcasing some of the finest food and drink from across the region, from the most traditional dishes to more modern takes on Caribbean cuisine.
As one would expect, the rum will be flowing freely and visitors can sample Bermuda’s National drink, the Dark ‘n’ Stormy, BVI Pain Killer rum cocktail, Grenadian rum from Westerhall distillery, Angostura 1919 reserve rum from Trinidad and Tobago, as well as indulging in a rare chance to try St Kitts’ very special Brinley Gold flavoured rums, not available or distributed anywhere in the UK.
London-based French Creole street food specialists, Bokit’La, will be serving up some tasty savoury treats at the show and visitors can indulge their sweet tooth with Caymanas rum cake and special chocolate from Grenada and Tobago. Cookbooks and cocktail recipes will also be on sale throughout courtesy of Promoting our Heritage and their Caribbean bookshop.
Rum as you’ve never seen it before will also be served up by RUMblin’, a collective of real rum aficionados who put rum in practically anything – try their take on rum-based sorbets, cocktails and even canapés.
For those who are inspired to head to the Caribbean and indulge in even more gourmet treats, Virgin Holidays will be offering exclusive deals on Caribbean holidays and bookings made at the show will receive a case of wine. Visitors will also have the chance to win a luxury five night stay at The Reefs Hotel in Bermuda with the Bermuda Department of Tourism and British Airways.
