A LETTER From the EDITOR

EDITOR Clare-Louise McGrath

Welcome to the 2020 edition of Good Taste magazine where we highlight the best places to drink and dine out across the culinary capital of the Caribbean. With everything from fast-casual and healthy eating, to gourmet dining and award winning wine lists, epicures and oenophiles have all their boxes ticked in Cayman – and between these pages you’ll find a break down of it all!

SALES & MARKETING Mahreen Nabi

It’s been another busy year for local restaurateurs and the Island’s everchanging culinary landscape has continued to expand. We offer a warm ‘CaymanKind’ welcome to Tillie’s and their refined approach to Caribbean cuisine; Steak Social and their modern take on the traditional steakhouse; Spanglish Traveler’s Cuisine & Bar, where Spanish inspired cuisine gets acquainted with local Caribbean ingredients, and Seven Mile Beach’s newest happy hour hot spot, Coral Beach. Aussie-inspired coffee chain Bluestone Lane Café opened up a location in downtown George Town, while Camana Bay added the world-renowned Starbucks coffee shop to their own town centre. Also new to Camana Bay is the Island’s first bespoke butcher shop, Carnivore Premium Meats, as well as the newest Foster’s supermarket featuring a totally reimagined Bay Market Café area.

DESIGN & PRODUCTION Julian Dalton

Our ‘Best’ features reveal some of Cayman’s time-tested favourites. We shine a light on the best dining spots along our stunning shores, locally lauded lunch joints, beloved brunches, and Cayman’s colourful cocktail culture in the Best Bars section. This year we’ve also introduced a round-up of the Best Cafés in response to the Island’s rising café craze! Inspired by the hard work of celebrity-chef-turned-humanitarian José Andrés, and his not-for-profit organisation, World Central Kitchen, we’ve chosen to explore the redefining of chefs’ responsibilities in this year’s lead article. ‘Stepping Up to the Plate’ illuminates Chef José’s global philanthropy as well as some homegrown Good Samaritan chefs who are doing their part to serve Cayman’s community outside of the kitchen. All that and more, this magazine will help you sink your teeth into the Island’s flavourful food and drink scene. Bon Appétit!

seafood and produce complement the beautiful, beach-side setting for an effortless dining experience. Enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner at Tillie's, or cocktails and light bites from the adjacent pool-bar, the Coconut Club. Palm Heights, Seven Mile Beach, West Bay Road | Tel: (345) 949 3491

Brussels Sprouts Previously a delivery-only food service, Brussels Sprouts has opened a bricks-andmortar location next to A.L. Thompson’s. They specialise in fresh, homemade meals and are popular with the lunch-time crowd thanks to their quick service and changing daily menu. A.L. Thompson’s, North Sound Road Tel: (345) 769 4027

Starbucks Camana Bay welcomed new tenant, and worldrenowned café brand, Starbucks Coffee, to the Town Centre. Sat centrally beside Books & Books on the Paseo, customers can sip on a selection of teas and coffee and choose from a variety of sweet and savoury snacks.

F EATURE A RTICL E

By definition a chef is an expert cook and tradesman, proficient in all aspects of food preparation; however, global culinary trends are suggesting a redefining and broadening of chefs’ responsibilities. s the need arises, chefs are recognising that more than nourishing individuals, they can help nourish

communities too. They’ve seen bureaucracy and red tape

get in the way of progress and those who can’t provide for themselves are being left at the wayside. Armed with the skills necessary to effectively lead a kitchen, Good Samaritan chefs are leading the charge and figuring out ways to better serve the most vulnerable in society. One key example of this, with a special Cayman connection, is the work being done by Cayman Cookout favourite, Chef José Andrés and the World Central Kitchen, his not-for-profit organisation devoted to feeding disaster stricken communities.

neighbourhoods and completely immobilising Puerto Rico’s power grid. In the aftermath the Island was declared a Federal Disaster Zone, and the U.S. government scrambled to provide sufficient relief support for a crisis of this magnitude. Organisations around the world rallied in support of Puerto Rico, eager to assist with the disaster management in any way they could, but perhaps none were more immediately impactful than the efforts of the World Central Kitchen. Once on the ground, the celebrity chef and his team of volunteers immediately got to work doing what they do best: providing a hot plate of food where it’s needed most. A network of emergency kitchens were set up across the Island, from which a total of 3.7 million meals were served between September 2017 and June 2018, making it Puerto Rico’s largest meal operation to follow the hurricane. Since its conception the World Central Kitchen has gone on to organise relief efforts in the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Zambia, Peru, Cuba, Uganda, The Bahamas and Cambodia, as well as provided free meals for Camp Fire survivors in Butte Country, California, the furloughed federal workers during the 2019 U.S. government shutdown, and those affected by the 2019 Midwestern

Meals On Wheels F EATURE A RTICL E

Cayman’s home kitchen chefs are also sweetening the pot in the most ‘CaymanKind’ way by volunteering their time to prepare meals for seniors, among whom isolation is a major issue on-Island. Meals On Wheels Cayman Islands provides hot, nutritious meals hand-delivered daily by a team of over 100 volunteers. The four dedicated kitchens are managed by Ms. Erin Bodden, Mrs. Janice Welcome, Mrs. Meredith Hope Foster and Ms. Alex Johnson. Presently they serve over 40,000 meals in all five districts. The service ensures the elderly and the disabled are receiving nutritiously balanced meals, as well as equally valuable social interaction provided by those dropping off their meals. Whilst there is government assistance for those in need, local charities, such as Meals On Wheels and Feed Our Future, are often stepping in to catch those who would otherwise fall through the cracks.

Women in White While chefs have always been called on to help feed the masses, the role they play in education has become just as valuable for shaping the community. Three local female chefs are doing their part to guarantee Caymanian students get the assistance needed to start their climb up the career ladder. Chef ’s Jessica Moore, Brittani Seymour and Timisha Edwards set up the Culinary Scholarship for Women in 2018 to benefit aspiring female chefs looking to further their education in a culinary field. The talented trio, known together as the ‘Women in White’, have already supported one Caymanian student through her final year at Johnson & Wales University with the help of funds raised at the inaugural Women in White Culinary Event. The 2019 fundraising event generated a whopping $12,000, ensuring continued support for the next generation of female culinary masters in the culinary capital of the Caribbean.

Agua

Ten years ago Italian owners Cristiano and Walter established Agua Restaurant and Lounge with the intention of creating a fresh and vibrant dining experience that avoided conventional Italian restaurant stereotypes. After relocating to Camana Bay’s breezy waterfront in 2018 and undergoing a menu refresh, this longtime popular seafood restaurant is soaring to even greater heights! Their new space is stylish and airy, featuring lots of natural wood accents and coloured glass, creating a nautical theme that nicely complements the seafoodrich, Italian Peruvian inspired menu. Longtime fans of Agua will recognise the large ceviche selection, including Mixto Peruano and Cayman Style, and enjoy sampling the many new tasty menu additions! Must-have dishes include the namesake Agua Tuna, the Sicilian Mahi and the delectable Peruvian seafood stew: Parihuela.

The wine list, with an extensive choice of Old and New World wines, perfectly complements the menu and patrons can even enjoy their meal in Agua's intimate wine room. Cocktails from Agua's award winning mixologists, enjoyed in their new plush bar area, include the freshest and finest local ingredients. The combination of a unique Italian Peruvian menu, a casually elegant setting and attentive service has cemented Agua as one of the leading players in the Island’s restaurant scene. Also try their sister restaurant Catch in West Bay, it is fabulous!

Blue French doors open out onto the wide deck overlooking Morgan's Harbour. Soft breezes flow in from the North Sound. Views of fishing boats lazing back up to their docks with Frigates soaring above, are your accompaniments to leisurely lunches and delightful dinners. This is the Calypso Grill experience in West Bay, and what a charming and delicious experience it is. Shuttered window seats line the main dining area, with French doors along the sea – kept ajar to capture the ever present breeze. By day the sun fills the room, the water sparkles, and the play of colours equals the splendor of the outdoors. By night Calypso Grill enjoys the most comfortable and cozy feeling on the Island. The Calypso Grill creators: Teresa Grimes, James Mason and Chef George Fowler, "the heart" of the restaurant, are aided by their excellent kitchen and front of house staff. Old favourites include the Peppered Tuna Carpaccio, Crispy Mango Shrimp, Wahoo Escoveitch and, of course, Sticky Toffee Pudding. The latter of which has gained such a following that a road has been named after it. This

delightful

restaurant,

always

popular with the 'locals', serves consistently good food and fine wines in a unique setting. Chef George Fowler's cookbook 'Going Down Sticky Toffee Lane' is now available to purchase and is a delightful collection of recipes, colourful Calypso photos, and stories of his career.

Best OUT TO LUNCH

When the clock strikes 11am... ....we can't help but think about what we're going to eat for lunch – but with so many tasty food options in Cayman, it’s not always an easy decision to make! Whether you’re after a leisurely lunch with friends or colleagues, a quick bite on the run, or lunch brought straight to your door, we’ve narrowed down some of the best spots to grab your midday meal.

Grab and Go Need to grab a quick bite on the go? Pick up freshly prepared hot food, salads and made-to-order sandwiches from the Brasserie Market, Bay Market Café at Foster's Camana Bay, Kirk’s Gourmet Deli or Hurley’s Supermarket. Pico in the Cayman Technology Centre serves up fast-casual Mexican fare and Brussels Sprouts has a menu that features rotating hot and hearty home-cooked style meals. If you’re in a hurry, grab a quick sub from Subway, or call in your order ahead of time to Burger Shack. Stop by Singh's Roti Shop for rotis and daily specials and Latin Taste for quick Latin-American favourites. For juicy wood-roasted chicken meal deals, pop into long-time favourite Chicken! Chicken!. Café del Sol and Paperman's, both of which you'll find dotted around the Island, offer soups and sandwiches perfect for lunch on the go.

Wild Juice Chase Need to revitalise your body with some fruit and veggies? You can find fresh juices and smoothies at Full of Beans and Island Naturals Café. Juiced @ The Wicket, Jessie’s Juice and South West Collective are all great for fruit and vegetable juices squeezed fresh on the spot, and Saucha/Conscious Café serves up homebrewed, organic kombucha. Kirk Supermarket, Hurley’s and Foster's Camana Bay make their own fresh juices and smoothies daily, and Green2Go in Cannon Place sells an array of cold-pressed juices, superfood shakes and more. They support local farmers and also offer daily delivery.

Cooking with grandma and making barley soup and sugar pie with her. Who is the biggest influence on your cooking? Anthony Bourdain.

Robby Molina Head Chef | Spanglish Born and raised in Olancho Honduras, Chef Robby has spent the last 10 years as a chef in Roatán. He is an expert in creating delicious dishes full of Caribbean and Spanish flavours. He moved to Cayman in late 2019 to become the head chef at Spanglish, a new and exciting restaurant located in The Strand. Using fresh, local ingredients where possible, he has created an innovative menu full of fresh and exciting flavours.

ROBBY Says... What is your favourite dish to cook and why? A paella. I love this traditional dish; the flavours and the colours are amazing and I love how it brings people together in a social setting.

“Discipline, consistency and perseverance. If you are prepared to put in the hard work, and have raw talent then you will be a great chef."

What is your first, or favourite food memory? Eating my grandma’s fried fish back in Roatán. The fish was incredibly fresh – just caught that morning from the ocean. She would get the whole family together, brothers, sisters, aunties and cousins, for a weekly feast. The house would smell delicious and everyone would enjoy catching up – I loved it! If you had your own cooking show, what would you call it? Cooking with Robby. What would you offer as the best cooking tip for a novice? The importance of good hygiene in the kitchen and to be aware of allergies. What is your most popular dish at Spanglish Tequila shrimp. They are crunchy and delicious. I recommend pairing them with a margarita! What is your favourite kitchen gadget? The mixer. Why do you think Cayman is such a culinary hotspot? I think part of the reason is the fresh seafood. We have access to fresh fish coming off the boats every day, which many places across the US and Canada can only dream of. We also have some fantastic chefs. I am relatively new to Cayman and I’m already blown away by the local talent and the amazing food served in restaurants. Fill in the blank: If I weren’t a chef I would be… A footballer!

BEST WIN E

UNDER THE

ROCK WORDS BY xxx

WORDS BY ALICe BRINTON

International Wine Consultant for Vino Veritas

There are many who say that the white wines of the Mâconnais are one of its best kept secrets. Indeed, the Chardonnay grape reigns supreme – it accounts for about 80% of all vines planted here - producing some delicious and powerful wines which often rival their more illustrious Northern Burgundy cousins. At the Southern tip of the Mâconnais nestling under the majestic limestone cliffs of Solutré and Vergisson are four villages which are home to the appellation Pouilly-Fuissé, considered the best wine of the region. Solutré and Vergisson are rocky spurs which culminate at about 1600 feet and are made of hard limestone of the Jurassic period some 40 million years ago and covered with the alkaline clay that best suits the Chardonnay grape. They are both archaeological sites from the Palaeolithic period and it is within the heart of this exceptional environment that Pouilly Fuissé wines are produced.

It is no secret that Burgundy produces some of the finest wines of France if not the world, excelling in both red and white with famed names like Montrachet, Corton Charlemagne, Romanée Conti, Echezeaux – the list is endless. All the above hail from Northern Burgundy, the celebrated Côte-d'Or or “golden hillside” which produce the grapes that turn into their legendary wines. But that is by no means where Burgundy ends and for those discerning palates looking for delicious wines at more reasonable prices, there is no better place to head to than the Mâconnais. The Mâconnais is located at the Southern tip of the Burgundy wine region and takes its name from the nearby town of Macon on the banks of the Saone river. The Mâconnais runs about 50km from top to bottom and is about 15 kms wide and seems to herald the Mediterranean with its flat roman-tiled roofs, rolling, lush valleys and monumental rocky outcrops. The climate is indeed warmer than up North, and the gentle reliefs mean that vines are mixed with other forms of farming such as cattle in most of the area. 120

G O O D TA S T E 2 0 2 0

Of all the Burgundy appellations, Pouilly-Fuissé has the most varied geology with at least 14 different types of soil. It is also the only appellation outside the Côte-d'Or to be a part of the Hospices de Beaune domain and can therefore be auctioned off at the prestigious Hospices de Beaune wine auction which is held in Beaune on the third Sunday of November. And if all that is not enough to make it special, it has applied for 1er Cru status for a limited number of its vineyards and is likely to be awarded that distinction in the near future. The four villages which are home to Pouilly-Fuissé: Solutré-Pouilly, Chaintré, Fuissé and Vergisson are picture postcard examples of sleepy French villages boasting pretty, flower-clad houses, ancient churches and sidewalk cafés. On the flanks bordering these villages, vines, vines and more vines wander up the hill towards the great rocky outcrops of Solutré and Vergisson. There is nothing ostentatious or pompous about the wineries here – they are nearly all run by independent, smallscale and highly motivated winegrowers dedicated to making distinctive white wine at a reasonable price! And one such “vigneron” is Christian Delorme whose vineyard lies beneath the towering Vergisson outcrop which looms over this idyllic village of the same name. I dropped in to the Domaine Delorme unannounced and apologetic knowing well that the grape harvest was in full swing and that no one would have much time for me, but I was greeted warmly by Christian, a quiet, bespectacled man who sat me down in his 18th century vaulted cellar to talk about his wines. His “Sur la Roche” vineyard is one of the several slated for Premier Cru status although Christian is philosophical about the bureaucratic snafus that are holding the whole process up.

The Delorme family has been producing yield, that’s because of frost and then wine for about 200 years and over that time excessively warm weather…” He trails off. they have stuck – like so many Mâconnais “At least we don’t have to chaptalize (adding winemakers – to their traditional roots, sugar to the wine) like the old days, with making and perfecting their wines without global warming we’re getting the degrees artifice, farming with organic principles. we need for our wine to mature properly.”

Although he produces Macon village white as well as Saint Véran, it is the Pouilly-Fuissés and notably the “Sur la Roche” which commands attention. It is a departure from the usual rich occasionally oaky Pouilly-Fuissé wines, instead offering lots of lift and mineral verve which remind one of a great Chablis. The wine is fermented in stainless steel before spending 24 months in French oak. “I like a long maturation” Christian tells me. “I don’t like filtering my wines as the process lessens the taste. I want my wines to be as natural as possible, so I bottle very late.” How is the 2019 yield I ask him? “Not good”, he grimaces. “The quality is there but we only have one third of our usual

I could sit and talk wine with Christian all day, but these are busy times and he is a busy man. After I bid him goodbye, I walk out of his winery and up the hill to gaze at the vines nestling under the great Vergisson rock. I can still taste the wonderful freshness of the flint and mineral of “Sur la Roche” on my tongue as I marvel at nature and one man’s gift to the rest of us.

“We have 7.5 hectares of vines”, Christian told me “and although that’s not huge, I’m basically a one-man show”. His father Michel is retired and although he used to have help he says it is getting extremely hard to find people willing to work in the vines.

THE CAYMAN Culinary Society The Cayman Islands have long been recognised globally for their distinguished food and drink offerings, and the Cayman Culinary Society is working hard to uphold that reputation.

Formed in 1989, the Cayman Culinary Society (CCS) connects professional Chefs and Food and Beverage personnel in an effort to "promote the Cayman Islands culinary industry", both locally and globally. The society’s various training programmes and annual events offer top local chefs the opportunity to further refine their craft. Members share ideas and inspiration, as well as work towards fine-tuning authentic ‘Contemporary Caribbean’ cuisine as offered throughout the Cayman Islands. Young chefs are also supported by the society’s endeavours and the CCS works closely with Cayman’s National Youth Culinary Programme to raise funds and shine a light on rising culinary stars.
