“Food and Fete ~ A Celebration Of Garifuna Cuisine”

Collage 2015-11-15 19_53_11 (3)On November 13th, 2015 our Excective Chef Marcia Nunez and Sous Chef Jane Martinez both Garifuna Hopkins natives competed with Belcampo Lodge, Walucos, Aasha’s Kitchen, Laru Beya and Jaguar Reef Lodge for a culinary battle celebrating Garifuna Garinagu Cuisine to which we walked away as the Gran Price Winners.    Main course was pan seared Baruru with #lionfish along side calaloo and chaya dressed in coconut milk.  Dessert was a cassava crème brule and the drink was “Sahua” with fever crossed and a dash of brandy.

Even with the weather conditions of down pour rain, wind and limited kitchen accessories the girls kept their wits and were are so proud of you Marcia and Jane for a job well done.  Hamanasi is so proud to have in both in their team!
