This is a favourite dish of Caroline’s who introduced me to Halloumi when I came to the UK. I had never eaten it in St Lucia so it was a completely new taste for me, what I love about it is its ability to be fried and stay whole and the salty taste, it goes really well with the vegetables in this recipe and the mango sauce just gives it a tangy, chilli heat without being too hot. I think you will love it but let us know! Continue reading Caribbean Sunshine Supper
Both Caroline & I love pasta cheesy dishes when the winter is in full swing as it is now in the UK. Being from St Lucia we would be eating Mac & Cheese instead even though its hot! I love how versatile pasta is and we tend to use different types, gluten free too sometimes as there are some very good choices to be had. Anyway try this one out I think you might like it as much as we do. Continue reading Cheesy Bacon Pasta with Sweet Pepper & Mustard Sauce

This is the time for slow cooked casseroles, deep winter colours and food to keep you warm. The beetroot gives it extra colour and a tasty, slightly earthy flavour, just don’t wear a white T shirt when you are eating it.
Recipe serves two hungry people, best cooked in a slow cooker or casserole
Cook for 4 hours on high heat in a slow cooker, longer on a low heat OR casserole in the oven for 2 hours on 180℃
Back in the day as a very young man I started out working as a barman in my home country St Lucia, it was busy and rewarding, not least because I got to make lots of different cocktails, rum punch was always a pleasure to make and even now when we have a party I will always make my version which I now share with you! Continue reading Party Time Caribbean Rum Punch

Thank you everyone who took part these are the results
93% of people said they would like to have a subscripton either for themselves or as a present for someone. With as much flexibility to length and frequency as possible.
Most people either wanted it monthly or bi monthly, and again most people wanted a good variity with recipes that went with what came in the box.
Results for what goes in the box were mainly Chef Bernie’s Sauces with a smattering of other brands and rubs, chilli salts and marinades high on the scores.
A third of the people also wanted a Chef Bernie apron so that might be something we can add in as a flexible option.
We are busy getting the ideas into a framework and will be launching in January 2017!
Drop us an email if you are interested in keeping up with the launch 🙂
