It’s mango season. Hallelujah. Last week we celebrated with a mango crumble. This week, its Cayman’s 3rd Annual Mango Festival!
This event is not to be missed and celebrates all thing mango! There were free samples of the dozens of mango varieties, mango ice cream, mango juice, mango cake, mango bread, mango jam…it was the Mangoization of the Cayman Islands and I loved every minute of it.
The Ritz-Carlton showcased a booth that was offering this fantastic mango pastry with almond cream. It’s a mini-version of an ace dessert they serve at one of their hotel restaurants: 7 Prime Cuts & Sunsets.
and our friends at Michael’s Genuine
wow’d the crowd with a double feature! Chef’s mango BBQ pork shoulder with mango slaw made me do cartwheels. Awesome sweet-savory mash up and and hella cool way to work up a BBQ sauce. His right hand, Adriana, served cups of mango cheesecake/flan genius.
Finally, Bon Vivant’s
mango bruschetta with truffle oil took you straight into decadent heaven. This offered up a decidedly different taste because there was nothing sweet about this dish. So delicious. All and all, it was another great event and I was thrilled to see an even bigger turnout than last year
PS. Clark Kent and I snuck away to Ottawa this past weekend.
Big congratulations to James
and Sarah Dimond! And check out my studly groomsman 😉
