Mango Madness

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

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.
Chef Thomas 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 😉

  1. Just looking at these mango treats drive my senses crazy! I should create a mango madness event here too, and surround myself with like-minded mango lovers.

  16. There is no food on earth better than a ripe mango. I wish it weren't winter because I want one right now. You know the kind, where you hang your head over the sink and stick your face in it.

    (or maybe that's just me)
