A LETTER From the publishers

PUBLISHERS Joanna Boxall Charles Grover

WEL COM E

Welcome to the 2018 edition of the Good Taste magazine. We bring you the best of Cayman’s evolving culinary scene and yet again it’s been a busy year with new restaurants looking to satisfy the discerning diner. This year our lead article explores the ‘back to basics’ trend of sourcing ingredients locally and the incredibly innovative chefs who are pushing the culinary boundaries in Cayman. As an ecologically aware island, Cayman restaurant owners are embracing, and in some cases leading, the trend of sustainability and incorporating local seasonal produce in their menus. We see this trend becoming the norm as diners become more diet conscious and more concerned about the source and treatment of everything they eat. With this in mind, we highlight the best places to go for healthy eating, local food, vegan options and casual dining. But of course we showcase the more decadent options for gourmet diners, wine connoisseurs, desserts lovers and brunch aficionados. We think we have most options covered! We also list Cayman’s top bars, and go behind the scenes with chef and bartenders (including award-winning mixologists) who reveal some of their more interesting and intimate experiences! And if you are planning an event or wedding then look no further than the Entertaining Trends and Event Planning section. Remember to check out www.caymangoodtaste.com, the ‘go-to’ resource to view full menus, make dinner reservations, read restaurant reviews, find deals and restaurants that deliver and so much more. Like our Facebook page and join over 15,000 “Tastees” to get the latest culinary gossip, deals and a chance to win restaurant certificates.

SIMPLE is the new

SOPHISTICATED Words by MAHREEN NABI Photos by Julie Corsetti

Cayman Chefs are bringing innovation back

to the basics in a most palate-pleasing way.

of simple, honest, delicious food. Read on for insights into how the Islands’ Chefs

are working to ensure you know what’s in your food, where it comes from and how it's produced.

O

ver the past 15 years, dining in Cayman has taken immense strides. Both triumph and frustration have marked the rapidly evolving food culture of the Islands with a number of restaurants closing, fashionable new venues opening, and other island staples taking a slow but steady approach to moving away from elaborate menus and hard-to-find ingredients, in favour of a more local, artisanal offering.

Setting The Stage The early 2000s were marked by culinary fads: cryogenic cooking (the use of liquid nitrogen to transform food), molecular gastronomy (transformation of basic foods technically or artistically – i.e. avocado, salmon, and egg foams), and deconstruction (breaking down the elements of a traditional dish and serving the items separately in a unique way).


INNOVATION

The process of alteration, change, transformation or by way of metamorphosis

{

{

food trend vs food fad

Food fads come and go speedily and are often exacerbated by social media. Food trends are longer lasting and more impactful. They become a part of eating culture. Examples of fads include:

Deep-frying - Everything from Oreos to whole slices of cheesecake.

Liquid Meals - Blending up everything from steak to strawberries gives juicing a new meaning.

Bowls - Serving meals, from poke to burritos to smoothies, in bowls.

Carbon - Adding carbon powder to desserts to change the food’s colour to black.

The popularity of these theatrical displays of culinary fancy was short lived, soon to be replaced by a starkly different approach. Many customers started to prefer a simpler dining experience, where upscale comfort food was served in unfussy restaurants. “You were finding that some Michelin Star dining establishments were letting go of the starched linens and stuffy dining rooms,” Chef Dylan, executive chef at YARA Global Steakhouse, observes. “Instead, restaurants with honest, unpretentious food focused on the quality of the product rather than being worried about what people thought if they didn't have valet parking." Culinary capitals around the world began seeing a large group of diners who were searching for upscale comfort food – thus the work began for chefs to find a middle ground between traditional cuisines (classic French, English, American and Caribbean) and the trending expectation for refinement to go no further than the plate’s edge. This global shift was also evidenced by the Michelin Red Guide. Europe’s oldest and most elite restaurant guide began awarding stars of excellence to establishments that trended towards the casualisation of good food – places that offered quicker, cheaper dining options

without sacrificing quality. Two notable examples are the noodle cart located in Singapore’s Chinatown Complex that was awarded one Michelin Star for its $1.50 plate of noodles, and a sushi restaurant in a Tokyo subway station, owned and operated but Chef Jiro Ono, which was awarded three Michelin Stars in 2008.

and respected; consumers have healthy and affordable options; and chefs gain the creative freedom to experiment with ingredients at various stages in their life cycle (from seed to full bloom). As Chef Dylan notes, it allows one to create something unique that is true to the season and culture in which it is served.

Here & Now This shift continues today, as talented local and expatriate chefs continue to focus on Cayman’s fresh seafood, simple unique flavours and the importance of, and respect for, food in Caymanian culture.

Back To Basics with Relationships For chefs and foodies alike, knowing who their food comes from is now often considered just as important as knowing where it comes from. Chef Dean says “Getting to know the farmers and fishermen, their histories and personal beliefs, helps us understand how they reel in their catch or grow their food. And yes, it’s a little more work, but it’s worth the investment in time and resources because what you end up with is mutual encouragement to push the envelope."

An increased awareness of healthy eating, coupled with a preference for homegrown, sustainable food continues to gain traction. The Brasserie’s Chef Dean, a culinary pioneer in Cayman, was one of the earliest adopters of a philosophy he describes as “better local produce, for a better product on the plate, at a better price." The era of importing exotic delicacies to show chefs' innovation shifted to using fresh and delicious local produce to let the food shine in a simple and refreshing way. In essence, they were taking things back to the basics. Back To Basics with Food Philosophy Every chef knows that great food begins with quality ingredients. But great ingredients need not be incredibly expensive, imported or rare. The use of locally grown, raised or caught ingredients are supported by the presence of robust offerings at two weekly farmer’s markets: The Market at the Cricket Grounds and Camana Bay’s Farmers and Artisans Market. It’s a win-win all round: the ingredients are fresher and therefore taste better; it’s a more environmentally responsible choice; farmers and fisherman are valued

The menu planning process in Cayman is moving away from the classic vision of executive chefs huddled around fluorescent kitchen lights scratching ideas down on a pad of paper. Rather, it now often begins before the seeds are even planted. For chefs and farmers, the relationship has evolved from buyer and supplier, to a more collaborative effort. “I listen to the farmer. I ask them what is in season and what is coming soon. Sometimes farmers need to know if there is going to be a market for their product before they invest in the infrastructure like raising goats or breeding ducks and harvesting their eggs. They need to know someone is going to be ready to purchase before they go through all the trouble to produce the product. This dialogue is paramount to the success and sustainability of both the farm and the restaurant,” says Chef Dylan. Back To Basics with Production Inspired by Chefs Cindy and Delius, of the


former Ortanique Restaurant (famed for their use of the greenhouse in Camana Bay) many of Cayman’s restaurants have started to produce as well as provide. One such example is YARA, whose charcuterie plate includes sausage that has been ground, spiced, cased and dried in-house. In addition, Chef Dylan is experimenting with in-house cheese production, working with local farmers to get fresh goat’s and cow’s milk. The Brasserie has managed an organic garden since 2010 where the kitchen’s staple vegetables are grown. As well as supplying the kitchen, the garden is used

is to

as an experimental breeding ground for ingredients not traditionally grown in Cayman, thus saving local farmers the risks involved in trying new crops. This year, Chef Dean has had success with turmeric, ginger, civil war peas, dragon fruit, broccoli and bok-choy. The vegetable garden, however, is only one part of their commitment to using locally produced ingredients. “We’ve grown our brood of chickens from 15 to over 200, have 24 of our own beehives, and own two boats with local fishermen who go out daily at 5am for fresh tuna, wahoo and snapper,” Chef Dean points out. In becoming producers as well as providers, restaurants can not only serve fresh, local, seasonal food, but they can also keep ethical diners fully informed about exactly where their food has come from. As the culinary metamorphosis in Cayman continues, food-lovers have moved past the idea of innovation for the sake of innovation, and instead have found themselves gravitating towards un-staged, simple, honest food. Fortunately for islanders and visitors, Cayman chefs are equally passionate about bringing culinary innovation back to the basics in the most palate-pleasing way. The culinary capital of the Caribbean will not disappoint!

restaurant’s mixologist using seasonal fruits directly from the Island’s farmers. Abacus offers inside dining with warm lighting and modern designs accented by contoured walls and iron chandeliers. The outside dining area is shaded by surrounding palm trees and offers a gentle cool breeze coming in from the harbour. Ideally located amongst the Island’s high-end boutiques, with grand views of the amazing architecture and botany of Camana Bay, Abacus lends itself to the perfect place to dine at any time during the day or evening.

Agua

Agua has established itself as one of the leading players in Cayman’s restaurant scene. Italian owners Cristiano and Walter became great friends while working together at Calypso Grill and have achieved their dream of creating a successful restaurant on Seven Mile Beach. Seeking to avoid the conventional Italian restaurant stereotype, they have fashioned a vibrant and truly happening place. With their team consisting of twenty-four nationalities (Mexican, Peruvian, Italian, Indian, Spanish and Austrian to name but a few), Agua truly is an alluring example of Cayman’s melting pot. The Peruvian dishes are prepared by their Peruvian chef; Malaysian by their Malaysian chef; and so on. Hence the traditional dishes are lovingly prepared by the right people who have inherited their skills and unique touches from their parents' and grandparents' recipes. All of these elements come together to create a powerful offering and diverse menu, with

an emphasis on the freshest of seafood. Very popular are the different ceviches (available by the spoonful for those who can’t settle on just one) and tiraditos which are similar to carpaccio. Entrées include a number of fish dishes each with a different international twist, be it Mediterranean, Asian or South American. For those who are not keen on seafood, there are plenty of fresh salads, pastas and meat dishes to choose from. The wine list, with an extensive choice of Old and New World wines, perfectly complements the menu. Cocktails from Agua's award winning mixologists, include the freshest and finest ingredients. The brunch on Sunday is a casual yet fine affair and is also available on Saturday by request. This combination of a unique and truly international menu, a casually elegant setting and attentive service have made Agua a firm favourite. Try their waterfront restaurant in West Bay - Catch. It is fabulous! F o r F u l l M e n u s V i s i t : www. C ay m a n G o o d Ta s t e . c o m

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 the 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 and is a delightful collection of recipes, colourful Calypso photos, and stories of his career.

Farm Fresh

With a rising abundance of fresh, locally grown produce available to us in Cayman, consumers are inspired to make a shift towards more sustainable dining.

VIVO, Bread & Chocolate, and Saucha all offer lunch options that promote the farm-to-table movement with food made using ingredients that have been handselected and consciously chosen.

Trends {cayman style}

How To Entertain in Cayman? Entertaining in Cayman is so easy! With so many event professionals offering such a wide-range of services at competitive prices, you won’t need to break the bank either! Planning to go big but still want to watch your budget? Work with a professional who understands the local industry and can get you the best deals. Read on to learn about the hottest trends making the rounds on the entertaining scene!

Casual Dining The laidback nature of island living has trickled down into the food scene as more people are opting for casual dining solutions to suit their entertaining needs. Food trucks are growing in popularity as a cool and easygoing catering alternative, whilst Mexican, Japanese, and Peruvian-influenced cuisine is chosen for the ease of reaching for finger-food friendly tacos, sushi and ceviche. How about a Mexican themed food bar?

360° View

Think tacos and a selection of salsas! Or

Heard the buzzing overhead? It’s the drones!

ceviche? Whatever you decide to serve at

If you want that stunning, 360 degree shot of your beach wedding, you must hire a professional drone operator in Cayman; this is one of the hottest wedding trends this season! Classic, black and white portraiture is experiencing a resurgence — but it never really went out of style, did it?! Grand Cayman has highly trained and experienced photographers; some specialise in commercial and food photography, others specialise in weddings and portraiture. With the latest advances in amateur cameras, it may even be tempting to DIY, but we highly recommend hiring an experienced photographer to capture timeless shots of your event that will transcend any future trend.

For our recommended caterers and event planners as well as top tips and event venues read on... 128

G o o d Ta s t e 2 0 1 8

keep it local with a raw-bar featuring fresh your event, the many professional event venues and skilled international caterers in Grand Cayman can make it happen.

Go Live! That solo harpist strumming the wedding march may still be on trend for the traditionalists, but some brides are choosing soulful choirs to belt out a love ballad or two. While you will never go wrong with an experienced DJ setting the ‘soundscape’ of your event, this season, we are seeing live bands at birthday parties, charity events and even weddings! Whatever you decide, you will need one of Cayman’s experienced event planners to arrange quality sound production.

Let them Eat Cake! Desserts and baked goods are a necessity to mark any celebration and fortunately there is a wide range of pastry chefs available on Island to create the decadent dessert of your dreams! With food trends growing more laissez-faire as millennials are favouring casual outdoor dining, desserts are taking centre stage. From more traditional cakes to fun and extravagant donuts and pastries, Cayman has the experts to bring your dream to life.

Over the top florals There are very few limitations in Cayman when it comes to event décor. Roses, Calla lilies, hydrangeas, tulips, orchids, or whatever variety of flower is your favourite, they can usually be found at local floral shops or certainly imported from overseas. Whether you want to adorn a bannister in your home with local greenery before hosting a dinner party or a floor to ceiling wall with hundreds of roses for a formal evening wedding, floral arrangements set the mood in a room, and can be the focal point of any event. Planning an outdoor wedding in a garden or at the beach? One of the many local florists on Island will be able to advise you on the variety of flowers that won't wilt away in our tropical climate before the "I dos"!

Artemio Lopez Chef de Cuisine | The Brasserie If there’s one food that Artemio, aka Arte, can’t live without it is fresh homemade tortillas - the ones his grandmother and mother used to make growing up in the “food capital” of Mexico, Oaxaca. It is these fond memories that inspired Arte to pursue a globe-trotting culinary career. His experience spans more than 20 years in eight different countries, from Mexico to Switzerland, and from France to Kosovo where he established the first Mexican restaurant. He then travelled to Spain to work at Casa Alfonso restaurant, and while there, the restaurant was awarded a Michelin star. Following a stint in the United States, Arte made his way to Bermuda before finally reaching Grand Cayman. He has now been an integral member of The Brasserie team for seven years, and as Chef de Cuisine, Arte enjoys cooking with fresh, local and seasonal ingredients to create menus based on the wide variety and availability of farm-to-table produce in Cayman.

Bruno Deluche Head Chef | Guy Harvey's Restaurant & Bar When asked about his best dining experience, Chef Bruno fondly remembers his grandmother’s stuffed mussels and her ability to always produce a tasty meal despite her kitchen in the French countryside consisting of only a fireplace. Such childhood memories are what later motivated him to pursue a career in cooking. After time spent working his way around France gaining experience in kitchens, he followed his passion overseas where he worked in both London and Florida. Since coming to Grand Cayman he has worked at Casanovas, Coffee & Bites and Café Med. He is currently Head Chef of Guy Harvey’s where a focus on sustainable seafood is central to his menu, and is he also the co-owner of Petit Paris (in Camana Bay) with his wife Silviya. equipment can a top Chef not do

WILL O'HARA Head Chef | Abacus Hailing from Brighton, England, Head Chef of Abacus, Will O’Hara has a resolute commitment to the farm-to-table movement which is apparent from his enthusiastic use of fresh, local produce in his dishes. A regular at the Farmer’s Markets on-Island, Will believes in the importance of maintaining a symbiotic relationship between chefs, local farmers and fishermen to bring greater attention to the practices of sustainable cooking.

Prabu Natarajan Head Chef | Pani Inspired to pursue a culinary career after spending his youth helping his father with the family business, Chef Prabu has amassed an impressive record through years of experience working and cooking his way across India. From his posts at The Hampshire Hotel in Kerala, the Trident Hotel and the Grand Hyatt in Mumbai, he mastered the art of Indian and Asian cuisine as well as how to best utilise local ingredients in his cooking. In a bid to challenge himself, he worked on cruise liners for a period, where he strengthened his management qualities. In 2014, Prabu accepted the offer to join Market Street Group where he spent time working at Waterfront, Mizu, before taking on his current role as head chef for Pani.

The Monks'

best WIN E

Legacy WORDS BY ALICE BRINTON International Wine Consultant for Vino Veritas

Today, Cluny is part of the Mâconnais, a 10km wide strip of vines about 35 kms long. The white Chardonnay grape is omnipresent here. It accounts for about 80% of the vines planted on the slopes on the western edge of the Saône Valley from the villages of Uchizy and Chardonnay to the North down to St Vérand to the South on the edge of the Beaujolais. Some of the most interesting and best value Burgundy whites come from this often-under-estimated corner of Burgundy. Chardonnay thrives here thanks to a warmer climate than that of the Côte d’Or to the North where all the great red burgundies are concentrated. But in the Mâconnais with its gentle slopes and shallow little valleys, the limestone subsoil overlaid with either clay or alluvial topsoil is very well suited to the noble white Burgundy grape. Vineyards, climate and a growing number of young, dynamic winemakers ensure a glowing future for this particular terroir which produces some truly excellent white wines full-bodied and flavourful, combining elegance and finesse. So, it was from sleepy little Cluny – alas the great abbey has gone, sold for stone after the French revolution – that I set off one sunny afternoon during the recent “vendanges” to visit one of my favourite wineries, the Domaine Talmard in Uchizy in the Northern tip of the Mâconnais. The roads from Cluny undulate through vinecovered slopes in a landscape which one could well believe has not changed much since the 12th century – except for the odd pylon or telephone pole!

“All roads lead to Rome goes the old adage, but at one time all roads led to Cluny, a small town in Southern Burgundy and the site of the greatest church in Christendom until St Peter’s was built in Rome in the 16th century. The Benedictine abbey of Cluny was founded in 909, and thanks to the eminence of its abbots, rose in stature to become the great intellectual hub of the western world throughout the Middle Ages. The Romans brought the vitis vinifera grape variety to France when they conquered Gaul, but it was the monastic movements of the middle ages that revived and reshaped the vine-bearing landscapes of Burgundy. Starting in its southern-most tip, the abbots and monks of the great Cluny abbey played a key role in the planting and nurturing of the vineyards that would grow and thrive to become one of the great oenological legacies of all time.

Husband and wife team Benjamin and Mallory Talmard were hard at work when I arrived at their recently remodelled winery with its elegant wooden cladding and high tech interior. They were warm and welcoming despite my bothering them during this busy period. We stood among tall stainless steel vats – they don’t use any oak for aging - and talked about what led them to become winemakers. “I was a carpenter/roofer, so I had to learn by trial and error” smiles Benjamin all the while keeping an eye on a great stream of white juice flowing into a vat waiting to receive it. “And I was a beautician by training” added Mallory, “although I grew up in the world of wine since my father was the wine-maker here.” In 1997, Mallory’s father Paul seeking to retire, asked his daughter and son-in-law if they would like to take over. “We had to start from scratch” said Benjamin, “I read books, asked advice wherever I could and my father-in-law was a constant wise and instructive presence although he never interfered with what I was trying to do.”

Three years ago, they invested heavily and now have a state-of-the-art wine cellar with all the necessary equipment including total temperature control, gravity presses and an impressive catwalk high above the huge stainless steel vats in this modern cathedral of wine.

bottled. Mallory invited me to taste. The Mâcon-Uchizy is full, rich and fruity with a lovely long finish. It goes well with seafood and soft cheeses. The Montbellet is a subtler wine, more fruity and intense with powerful white fruit flavours underlaid by spicy after-tones but always fresh and zingy on the palate. Both of these wines are to my mind among the best the Maconnais has to offer, and the Mâcon-Uchizy was recently given the accolade of best value Burgundy white wine by Decanter Magazine.

In the tasting room I asked Mallory about the 2017 vintage. She told me they had 10 days of picking, a small yield though high quality. "We needed a bit more rain but still, the grapes are beautiful” she said.

At this point, Benjamin appeared with Mallory’s father Paul. Are you happy with the work your daughter and sonin-law have done, I couldn’t resist asking him? “Very” he said smiling. “They’ve The Talmards produce several different done a wonderful job.” There was pride white wines.
