Michael Harrison — Executive Chef

INTERVIEW

ELEVATING CARIBBEAN CUISINE b y — JOANNA FOX

Every chef has at least one dish that stands out in their mind as the one that made them fall in love with food. It’s the meal they dream about after a long week of work and the one that they can taste when they close their eyes. It’s that special food they strive to recreate their whole lives, trying to prepare it just like they remembered. It’s usually something their mother made, or grandmother, or sister, and they can tell you exactly how it was put together, step by step, like they can see it happening in their minds.

Chef Michael Harrison’s earliest and fondest food memories involve cooking with his aunt. It was always on a Sunday, the day of the week when families in Barbados gather together for their biggest meal. His aunt would put Harrison in charge of making the salads, cooking the vegetables or frying the chicken. Harrison always had to help her out in the kitchen before he was allowed to go play outside with his friends. Despite being teased reluctantly about his “girly” habits by the kids in his neighbourhood, Harrison didn’t care. He was already hooked.

For Michael Harrison, the executive chef of Camelot Restaurant at Cobblers Cove in Barbados, this dish is buck-pot pork. A buck pot is a Bajan term for a cast iron pot that you can basically cook anything in, and when I ask Harrison, who was born and raised on the island, to describe this dish, his voice fills with enthusiasm.

By the time Harrison was 13-years old, he was preparing entire meals for his whole family. He would make everything from the macaroni pie to the salads, vegetables, pork and chicken. One day his cousin told him that he should really consider going to cooking school and just like that, the seed was planted.

“My aunt used to show me how to make this pork that’s flavoured overnight with lots of herbs and seasoning and cooked in a buck pot with a little butter and water. You let it go for a really long time, making sure it browns on all sides, and when you finish with it, it becomes golden brown and all the meat just falls right off the bone. It has to be the tastiest dish. I used to just eat the fat and the bacon… Oh man! I can still taste it now. Those buck pots are very difficult to find nowadays and my aunt had this pot for years and years so it was all worn-in and used to cook the best. I still can picture it now, up to this day”.

After completing a two-year program at the local Barbadian hospitality institute, Harrison began his culinary career. Ironically, one of his first jobs was working at Cobblers Cove, but not as a cook, as a waiter, while he waited for a position to open up in the kitchen. When it finally did, all his co-workers thought he was crazy to leave the front of house, a position that paid twice as much as a cook. Just like the kids who made fun of him cooking as a child, Harrison shrugged them off and began work in the kitchen. The chef saw something special in Harrison and took him under his wing. Harrison swiftly moved up in the ranks and was taken along to do promotional


021

events in the United Kingdom. “When I arrived in Europe and I saw the respect the chefs had for food and for the kitchen and for people in authority, I said to myself that if ever I were to become anything in this profession, this is the place that I have to be”. It didn’t take long for Harrison to want to travel and experience the greater culinary world so he got a job with Michel and Albert Roux at Le Gavroche in London. For Harrison, getting the job was the easy part, getting to London was a bit more complicated. “In order to get there, I had to sell everything I owned. I sold my cds, my clothes, I sold anything that anyone would buy just to get on that plane. I arrived at Gatwick airport with £99 (160 USD) to my name. I was so naïve”. Once Harrison realized that such a small sum of money wouldn’t get him very far in one of the most expensive cities in the world, he did what any young person on their own for the first time would do. He panicked. In order to survive, he needed at least £400 (630 USD) for food and shelter. Unsure of who to turn to, he approached the only person he knew: chef Michel Roux. “I said ‘Chef, I’m having a bit of a challenge at paying my way, I need an advance on my salary’. He looked at me, didn’t even blink an eye, said ‘no problem’, and gave me the money. At the end of the month, when the time came to repay him, he

told me not to worry about it. I will never, ever forget that. That’s where my career really started”. That gesture of faith and kindness enabled Harrison to not only survive in London, but to thrive under the watchful eye of Roux, who eventually became the single most influential man in Harrison’s career. Under his mentorship, Harrison learned to become the unique and talented chef he is today. When Harrison finally returned to Barbados, he took a position at the very place his career had started all those years ago: Cobblers Cove. Harrison now had a clear vision of what he wanted to represent with his style of cooking at their signature restaurant, Camelot, and he was the man in charge. He was now the executive chef. “At Camelot, what I try to bring that’s unique is a part of my culture, a part of my childhood, from my aunt and from other people who influenced me along the way. I’ve been able to create Caribbean cuisine from what I’ve been taught from my travels and have combined that knowledge with ingredients that are indigenous to Barbados and the Caribbean. Then I present these reimagined dishes in a more contemporary way”. What Harrison is trying to do with his food at Camelot is make the restaurant known for utilizing ingredients either grown or produced on the island. He recently received an entire cow and

sheep from a local farmer and was able to create dishes for the restaurant using the nose-to-tail philosophy that is now becoming the norm. “It was amazing! It really opened my eyes and gave me a new love and passion for using more local ingredients We got the whole animals in and used certain parts for certain things. Talking to the guests about it afterwards, it showed me even more that that is something people want to eat more of. My goal is to really make the cuisine at Camelot more contemporary Caribbean. That’s my style of cooking”. When it comes down to it, Harrison not only wants to use local items, he wants to use them in a way that reflects his history, his culture, his experience and his understanding of Barbadian, and Caribbean cuisine. He wants to use his talents and the ingredients around him to elevate the local, traditional ways of preparing and serving the food he grew up eating. It’s been a long journey for Harrison, from helping his aunt in the kitchen and watching her make buck-pot pork as a child, to today, where he is the only Bajan-born executive chef in a 5-star restaurant on the island. If there’s one thing that’s for certain, once this very talented man sets out to do something, nothing seems to stand in his way.

Glen Bent — Chef / Owner

INTERVIEW

Q&A WITH CHEF/ OWNER GLEN BENT OF CARIBA b y — JOANNA FOX

Cariba is without a doubt one of the most delicious, charming restaurant experiences in Barbados. Just off Highway 1 on the scenic West Coast of the island, Cariba is located on a quiet residential side street surrounded by the lush Bajan foliage. With this restaurant, there are no sea views or valet parking, torch lit dining rooms or brigade of cooks, but as chef Glen Bent explains, the proof is on the plate. Owned and operated by Bent and his lovely wife, Faye, Cariba offers an authentic taste of the Caribbean with a slight Asian influence. The endearing setting, a converted chattel house, is the perfect warm atmosphere to enjoy Bent’s thoughtful take on Caribbean food. We sat down with the extremely talented Bent to talk about everything from Cariba and cooking to Barbados and breadfruit. How did Cariba come to be? It all started 7 years ago. Actually, first my wife and I started out as a catering business and we wanted to expand so we needed a location. When we found this place, we wanted to refurbish it because it’s a chattel house and all the windows are open so people just assumed the business was open. We kept getting asked when were going to be serving lunch and dinner. That was never our intention at that stage. Once we got asked enough times, we thought that maybe that’s the direction we should be heading into, so that’s what we did.

Where are you and your wife from? My wife is from here but I’m from Yorkshire, England. It’s in the north, Huddersfield, to be exact, which is closer to Manchester. My parents are Jamaican, so I’m originally from the Caribbean. What brought you here? Well, it really wasn’t an ambition to come here but as you travel as a chef, one thing seems to lead to another. When I left home I went to London and did the whole London thing, working in hotels. After spending three years in London I went to Brussels, Belgium, where I worked in a hotel. While in Brussels I met a Japanese chef and he enabled me to actually go and work in Japan. That’s when you start to get all these strings to your bow and you become more marketable. After Japan I went to St. Moritz, Switzerland, and then I was finally offered the opportunity to come to the Sandy Lane Hotel here in Barbados. I was hired as the executive sous-chef (second chef) and I think a lot of that was predominantly to do with my Asian cuisine background. There I met my wife, and the rest, as they say, is history. What brought you to the food that you serve here at Cariba? It fits, I mean, it fits the island. A lot of what we do is Caribbean inspired but I didn’t want to forget the trail that I followed to get here, so we do incorporate some Asian influences. I wouldn’t say


027

that it’s traditionally Caribbean and we don’t say it’s Bajan because we want to have a wider footprint, a wider umbrella to work under. We’ve got everything from Guyana to Puerto Rico so it gives you a wider scope to do different things. What kind of ingredients do you use? When it’s a small business, and because it’s a small island, there is a lot of importation. We want to import as little as possible here at Cariba. It works out fresher, it works out cheaper and it works out tastier. We try to bring as many influences to the table, but the majority of what we do here is from the island. What are some of your favourite dishes? The curries. They’re definitely Caribbean but also have the influences of Asia. Actually the restaurant name is the combination of the Caribbean and Asia: we called it Cariba, to incorporate both. I think that these curry dishes would sit as easily in Barbados as they would in Jamaica, as they would in Thailand or Indonesia. They seem to be our most popular seller. What is grown locally here in Barbados? Basically if you went to any market you would see a lot of cucumber, tomatoes, pumpkins and squash, a lot of mixed leaves and a lot of fresh herbs. We are an island so a lot of fish is local: kingfish, mahi-mahi, snapper, tuna, and swordfish. It’s also a good island for rearing chicken and pork, but not so much beef. There are lots of what we call ground provisions as well: sweet potatoes and yams. Then you have plantain, bananas, cassava, those kinds of root vegetables; we also have breadfruit.

Can you explain what breadfruit is? It’s kind of like asking what a potato is! It’s a starch. It’s a big green ball and the meat is very starchy. What people generally do is put it in foil with some butter and some salt and roast it on a fire on the beach. But there are also techniques where you do treat it as a potato: you can make chips with it, you can make a mash, you can stuff it with crab; there are many different techniques you can use for breadfruit. When you’re not working, where do you like to eat? I wouldn’t really say that for me there is one standout place. More often than not, after six or seven days here, it’s more family-style food at home: sometimes a BBQ outside in the back patio, just nice and easy with big salads and a little grilling.

Chattel House: A chattel house is something uniquely Barbadian and can be seen all over the island. The word ‘chattel’ means moveable and that’s exactly what these houses were: they were made out of wood without nails and were set on blocks so they could easily be moved from one location to another. They were designed back in the plantation days when the owners of the chattel homes often did not own the property the homes were on as well. If the homeowners needed to move, they simply took down their house and moved it to a new location. A lot of Barbadians built additions to their chattel homes so they gradually got bigger, with several different levels and rooms, and eventually became permanent structures.

The atmosphere here is great, how would you describe it? We like to describe it as something homey, cozy and unpretentious. People can relax here. What we try to do here is compete on the plate. So you’re not going to get valet parking and crystal chandeliers, but obviously when it comes down to what we put on the plate, we have to compete. I think we are very authentic and very homey. Quality. That’s the point I really want to highlight. Some people think because we’re not on the beach, they don’t see the flames at the restaurant or half a kilometre driveway, that we might not be their thing. But when people do venture here and discover what we’re about, I think they really enjoy it.

INTERVIEW

A BARBADIAN TAKE ON MEDITERRANEAN CUISINE b y — JOANNA FOX

Here’s something to know about Barbados: the roads are really narrow. Like, pretty scary on some turns, especially when there’s a big bus coming at you, narrow. Like, there goes your wheel, straight into a rain gutter, narrow. Like, white knuckled, you’ll need a stiff drink when you get to your destination, narrow. On the plus side, you’ll get used to it. Another bonus is that if you rent a car while you’re there, chances are it will be a small one. In my case, a picante: a bright canary yellow Kia Picante to be exact.

Larry Rogers — Executive Chef / Owner

Now don’t get me wrong, I loved my peppy, petite rental car, but when I drove up to the smooth, sleek stone walls that led to the entrance of the über chic restaurant Cin Cin by the Sea in my bright yellow Kia, I felt a pang of self-consciousness. As I bashfully gave my car keys to their valet, he joked that my car was so bright, they wouldn’t have any trouble finding it for me when I left. That’s not the only reason they’ll be able to find it, I thought.

“Maybe when I leave we can upgrade?” I said hopefully. “I wouldn’t mind a bright yellow Ferrari”. “No problem ma’am” he replied with a big grin. Ah, but how first impressions can be deceiving! How little I knew, as I learned that evening, that Cin Cin is so far from being the kind of place where what car you drove would ever matter. But I digress. Let’s go back to the beginning. As I walked into the restaurant, unsure of what to expect, I was immediately greeted by co-owner and executive chef Larry Rogers who, smiling and holding a glass of wine, swept me across the room and out onto the stunning terrace. In total awe of the view, I was truly speechless. “We wanted something different,” Rogers explained. “Rather than the neo-colonial style that everyone else has, we wanted something contemporary because that was the style of food I wanted to do.”

Contemporary, it certainly is, but Cin Cin is a lot more than that. For starters, it’s stunning: the restaurant is glass and wood and ocean and sky. It’s perfectly minimal with grays and whites and shades of blues; all natural hues, very tasteful and subdued. It feels like the organic extension of the setting: spacious and airy, fresh and clean. This is the kind of place you could equally sip or splurge; have a modest meal or live large and really splash out. This duality is something really quite exceptional because in Barbados, places like this don’t really exist. Or at least, they didn’t until Cin Cin came on the scene and Rogers and his wife Michelle shook things up. As Rogers and I sit at one of the twelve tables that are on the rail, directly overlooking the ocean and sip a glass of perfectly chilled rosé, I start to get the feeling that there’s something very special about Cin Cin.


Jeremy Decle — Chef

“We want to be different. We’re trying to push the envelope”, exclaims Rogers enthusiastically. “It’s a small restaurant community and it doesn’t change too often. We’re probably the more innovative of all of them. We’ve set the bar for a lot of people. We like to be pushed and we’re always changing.” While I sit back and try and take in the reality of this spectacular setting, the sun begins to slip away, piercing through the ocean’s dark horizon and leaving behind fleeting trails of pink, orange and red. Rogers discreetly gives one of his waiters a hand signal and two young men quickly disappear to the far end of the dining room. In very swift movements they begin to pull on leavers that slowly retract the roof over the terrace to reveal the night sky. The next thing I know, we are sitting in the open air, watching the moon come to life. It actually feels like we’re on the deck of a boat. The sound of the waves that lap the shore directly below our table mix in with the bustling din of the restaurant: Cin Cin’s soundtrack. This setting, this restaurant, this style of food – it wasn’t something that just fell into Rogers’ lap. It was the culmination of a lot of hard work, perseverance and the drive to create something new. Born in Barbados, Rogers grew up in New Zealand and began his culinary career in Auckland. In 1988, his sister lured him back to the island with the promise of a bustling tourist destination and plenty of work for a young chef. Rogers came with his then girlfriend Michelle, and she fell in love with the place. “I was like, well, let’s get married, and that was it”, recalls Rogers.

It was then that Rogers and his new wife entered the Barbadian restaurant scene. After many successful years operating a handful of well-loved restaurants on the island, Rogers got throat cancer in 2004. Unsure about his health or future, the couple decided to buy Pisces, a restaurant in a prime location on the lively St. Lawrence Gap. “It’s the only restaurant we’ve ever bought and it was something that my wife could operate during my chemo, not knowing what was going to happen with me. She started that while I had my treatment in New York.” Rogers got through the worst of the cancer and when he came back to Barbados the recession hit the island. Eight restaurants closed in one year: it was not a good time to be in hospitality. When a good friend of Rogers’ announced that he had to close his place as well (which happened to have a prime spot right on the coveted West Coast), Rogers saw an incredible opportunity. Rogers immediately took over the lease and began work on Cin Cin. His Mediterranean vision began to take shape. Despite running out of money halfway through, Rogers got Cin Cin back on track, and persevered despite the obstacles. When Cin Cin finally opened its doors, it was an immediate success. Today, Rogers has three restaurants under a parent company called Chaps: Cin Cin, Hugo’s and Pisces. Although they are all stunning locations, Cin Cin still stands out from the crowd. It not only looks quite different from most places on the island, but the food is adapted to Rogers’ own personal culinary style and preference.

“We describe ourselves as modern Mediterranean. Anything on the shores of the Mediterranean lend themselves to the ingredients we’re getting here so it’s relatively easy to make that fusion. A little Greek and Portuguese, French and Spanish, that type of thing. A lot of people find this style refreshing: it’s more like bistro food. I don’t cut little diamonds out of tomatoes and strategically place them on a plate, it’s a lot more provincial or honest. My style is taking the classics and breathing some fresh air into them. I don’t have anything on the menu I do not eat.” Rogers is also very much in touch with all his clients when they come and dine. Between courses, he gets up from our table and walks around the terrace warmly greeting diners, talking about the menu this evening, a dish they must try or a Burgundy wine he loves. It’s all very genuine and it’s obvious he enjoys what he does immensely. Cin Cin is not just an extension of Roger’s personality, it’s also an extension of his home. As my incredible meal experience at Cin Cin came to an end and I drove away in my (own) car, I realized that it wasn’t at all what I thought it would be. Even though this swish place looked like it could belong on South Beach or in Malibu, or even somewhere on the shores of the Mediterranean, it had a very Barbadian approach that was unmistakable. It’s wasn’t stuffy, or pretentious, and even though it looked very crisp and cool, it was incredibly relaxed and laid back. What Larry Rogers showed me was that it all comes down to attitude and enjoying the simple pleasures in life. So cin cin to you, Mr. Rogers, to a job well done.

INTERVIEW

SOME LIKE IT RED HOT b y — JOANNA FOX

It’s not easy being a tourist. You’re not familiar with where you are, you’re unsure of where to go, you’re not totally aware of all there is to see and do, and it’s not always easy to figure out what you’re looking for. There are definitely a lot of different sources that have made tourist life much easier to navigate with tips, opinions, reviews and descriptions of fellow traveller’s experiences, but regardless of all the information that’s out there, nothing is better than a recommendation from someone in the know. You can’t get any better than advice from the oldest source around: ask a local. As a tourist, I’m always trying to seek out the local experience, or as close to it as I can get, so that was my game plan when I first arrived in Barbados. Luckily for me, a good friend of mine happened to be living on the island for the past year, so when I asked him where to go for a fun night out filled with delicious drinks and great food he replied without even missing a beat. “Go to Scarlet”.

Stephane Domenge — Mixologist / Owner

Now because Barbados is such a small island and tourism is also one of it’s main industries, it’s not often you’ll find yourself somewhere without any tourists around. It’s really when you

find a spot here where both locals and tourists love to frequent that you know you’ve hit on something special. Scarlet is the perfect example of such a place. Once you know where Scarlet is, it’s easy to spot, but at first it’s not totally obvious, in spite of the fact that it’s a scarlet red house in a very busy area on the West Coast of the island. “We don’t advertise much”, explains Stephane Domenge, who owns Scarlet along with his delightful wife, Sophie. “We rely very much on word of mouth and it doesn’t look like much from the road: it’s all enclosed and modern. That was one of our main things when people said to us, ‘Why don’t you put a neon sign outside that says you’re open?’ People pass us and they don’t know. But I feel that if people are curious, they’ll get rewarded”. We certainly were rewarded the night we spent at Scarlet. Before I even begin though, I have to say this: one of the reasons I fell in love with Scarlet (besides Sophie and Stephane) is probably also one of the gutsiest moves I’ve ever seen a restaurant in a gorgeous, tropical location make. There are no windows. None! That’s just totally insane! And I mean that in the best way possible, of course.


065

“It is crazy, isn’t it?” Laughs Sophie. “But it kind of works. It’s a good people-watching place too, lots of things happen. It’s also nice to cool down because it’s really hot here and it’s hard to find a restaurant that’s totally air-conditioned”. It actually takes a bit of time, once you’re seated at Scarlet, to realize there are no windows. There’s just so much else to distract you. Just like the outside, the inside walls and ceiling are also painted deep red with pop art prints of Marylyn Monroe and Jackie Onassis adorning the walls. Along one side of the open room is a sleek bar, and along the opposing wall is a long banquette with several black tiled tables that make up the entire side of the room. There are additional tables scattered throughout the center and a disco ball hanging down right in the middle of the restaurant. Scarlet isn’t very big, in fact, it’s a pretty cozy space so if you’re looking for a hushed room and some privacy when you’re out to dinner, this might not be ideal for you. We begin to chat with our neighbours sitting to our left who seem to know the lay of the land and are all having some of Scarlet’s signature dishes. It reminds me of eating in bistros in Europe where you can’t help but rub elbows with your fellow diners and I have a fondness for that convivial energy. “It’s fun, you know, it’s a fun place to run. It’s meant to be fun, it’s meant to be loud, it’s meant to be a good time”, elaborates Sophie. “It’s always got energy, and it’s full of life. That’s what Scarlet is. You either like it or you don’t like it. It’s

not your romantic, let’s propose tonight type restaurant. It’s more like the chat with other diners, get to know strangers, type of place. Especially here, you don’t know who’s local and you don’t know who’s a tourist. It’s fun just to get thrown in there and see what happens”. The drinks certainly help get the ball rolling here and are the main reason why Scarlet exists at all. Although Sophie was born in Barbados, her family is English and she grew up in London. She worked in the hospitality industry and that’s where she met Stephane, who had moved there from France and was working as a bartender. They married and relocated to Barbados with the hopes of opening a cocktail bar. Stephane was appalled at the state of the bar scene when they first arrived. “There was no where that did proper cocktails. You could get a martini maybe at The Cliff, but they were not expanding and doing a big list with original drinks, fresh fruits and herbs.” “When we got here, which was 2004, it was so difficult to find a spot for Scarlet so we struggled”, says Sophie. “We knew we wanted to be on the West Coast and we wanted an easy location for everybody so we started off doing functions and catering, that sort of stuff. A year into it, we found Scarlet, but it was a complete mess. It was a bar before, a big rum shop, and we had to knock out the main room. It was fantastic though because it had that Bajan feel but also allowed us to make it into what ever we wanted inside,

which is exactly what we were looking for. We wanted a mid-range place to go and have drinks and have fun, which we felt was lacking here”. When Scarlet opened in 2006 it was originally a bar that served tapas-style snacks, but that didn’t last too long, as Stephane explains. “Somebody told us when we opened, they said that our customers are going to make the place the way they want it to be. You could try to push them into a direction but at the end of the day… it all comes down to them”. It’s a good thing customers pushed Scarlet into serving food as they’ve transformed some of the best comfort foods, influenced by British gastro pubs and food that both Stephane and Sophie like to eat. From fried prawn crackers to five-spice seared tuna, coconut curries and satay skewers, to Stephane’s home-made burgers, all the food at Scarlet is a reflection of the couple’s attention to detail and strong culinary point of view. I honestly don’t know if I would have stopped and taken a chance on Scarlet if I didn’t get that local tip, but one thing is for sure, I’m so happy I did. Scarlet is more than just a place, it’s a real personality. Far from being the wallflower, Scarlet is more like the girl who’s dancing on the table.

INTERVIEW

THE HOUSE ON THE CLIFF: A LOCAL RESTAURANT’S RISE TO FAME b y — JOANNA FOX

In practically every major city in the world, there’s always at least one restaurant that has evolved to the point where it’s either known by name, or by reputation. Whether it’s a famous chef or number of Michelin stars, exotic location or limited amount of seats, glamorous clientele or extreme cuisine, these coveted dining experiences are becoming more sought out than ever before. This is no ordinary dinner by any means, but amongst those rare few momentous meals that guests look forward to for ages, book months ahead of time, wait for a special occasion, and often save especially for. To achieve this level of prestige, to get to this stage on the global dining scene, all these restaurants and chefs had to start somewhere, they didn’t all just open their doors to accolades, waiting lists and international fame. The Cliff has been open since 1995 and is reputed to be the top restaurant on the island of Barbados, one of the best restaurants in the Caribbean, and even one of the most exclusive dining experiences in the world. Nestled into the side of a cliff overlooking the scenic West Coast of Barbados, The Cliff is known not only for its caliber of cuisine, but also for its unusual, mesmerizing and entirely original setting. Some say it looks like a pirate ship, others a fort, but there is one thing that’s for certain: it’s breathtakingly dramatic.

When you enter The Cliff you walk down towards the water, descending along a stone walled staircase and exiting into an incredible open-air space entirely illuminated by torches. Each table glows by candlelight and every seat in the house overlooks the sea. As much as the restaurant itself is awash in a fiery warmth, the ocean just below provides an exceptional contrast. The blue phosphorous water is brought to life by low-lying spotlights that accentuate the very distinguishable shapes of stingrays and tarpon fish that circle below. From The Cliff’s beach, another staircase leads up to the three-tiered restaurant for those who choose to arrive by yacht. From the impeccable service to the starched linens, impressive wine cellar and daily specials flown in from around the world, The Cliff is not your ordinary restaurant. It didn’t start out like that though, very far from. It was actually just a plain house on a cliff that was the collective vision of two men: owner Brian Ward and chef Paul Owens. “Brian approached me about a restaurant, which was just a little house with dirt all over the place”, recalls Owens. “I was like, where’s the restaurant going to be? And [Ward] said he had it all sorted. I said ok, where’s the car park? He said, don’t worry, mate, I got it organized and finally, I said, ok, I’m in.”

Owens, who is originally from Liverpool, had arrived in Barbados years earlier after falling in love with the place during several holidays. By the fourth visit, he simply decided to stay. He began his culinary career working in kitchens when he was only 14 years old and after leaving school shortly thereafter, began working as a cook full time. Before arriving in Barbados permanently, Owens had worked his way up to chef at a very successful Liverpool restaurant but he gave it all up to pursue a life on this small island. So how did Owens and Ward take a modest house and transform it into something that could very well resemble an ocean side castle with a brigade of 12 chefs and room for 200 diners? “We just kept on getting busier and busier and busier” shrugs Owens. “Most of this now didn’t exist, we just began to dig it all out bit by bit”. It wasn’t just the restaurant that slowly got bigger though, so did its reputation, both on and off the island. As more people began to hear of this new restaurant, The Cliff, the team began to make small changes, especially to the quality of the food, the wine and the service. “Although Paul and Brian started with their own concept, a lot of items on the menu evolved because of the guests”, explains Peter Harris, The Cliff’s delightful general manager. “Paul’s initial idea about this restaurant was casual and laid back. The guest began to have an important input and we listened because if that’s what your guests want, you need to evolve.”

The food began to take on a life of its own all the while propelling the restaurant’s prestige. The island itself also began to change, and it became a lot easier to get produce and specialty food products to Owens’ kitchen. “Twenty, thirty years ago your menu had to reflect what you could get”, states Harris frankly. “Now we’ve reached a stage where if Paul wants to do something, he makes a list of what he needs and we bring it in.” “Just the quality of the produce, it’s changed so much”, exclaims Owens. “It’s hard here, we’re not a seasonal place. We have seasons in terms of fish, but we don’t have game and it’s hard for meat, it’s not like England. Some restaurants around here bring in fish from Europe but I don’t see any need for that. We can get plenty of fish right here like tuna, snapper, barracuda, dolphin (aka mahi-mahi), all our fish is amazing.” Owens gets herbs and vegetables from the island when he can, but it’s challenging for such a small landmass to supply the volume of people that travel to Barbados every year. It’s impossible for the farmers to keep up. What Owens does import is farm fresh produce from a market in Paris every Thursday, top grade meat from the US, Kobe beef from Japan, and lamb from Whales or New Zealand, depending on the time of year. Not only does Owens bring in food from around the world, but he also travels to different restaurants all over the US and Europe to work in their kitchens and hone his skills.

“I really like to go off and work in new places. Last year I was at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in London that has three Michelin stars, and the year before that I was in New York at Le Bernardin. I was just in Miami last week and worked in Dallas as well. I like to do this, go out, get a little inspiration and learn new stuff.” As Owen’s food became more refined, reinforcing his reputation, the restaurant began to swell to accommodate the volume of customers who were now paying attention. They hired more staff, added more dining areas, expanded the bar, and increased the size of the kitchen. All of a sudden, people knew about The Cliff and it morphed into something more than simply your average restaurant: What was once a meal out now became an experience. What’s interesting about The Cliff’s gradual expansion is that they never built upwards, to loom over the coastline, but rather spread outwards and down, embedding themselves firmly into the rocky ledge, solidifying the restaurant into the very landscape that inspired their name. The Cliff’s intentions were to create a special setting with outstanding food yet over time, Paul Owens and Brian Ward, with the help of Peter Harris, their dedicated staff and their loyal clientele, all shaped The Cliff to become something altogether bigger than anyone could have ever imagined.

Britta Pollard — Managing Director

INTERVIEW

THE PINK PEARL OF BARBADOS b y — JOANNA FOX

You can see it from the plane when you fly into the Grantley Adams International airport in Barbados. A soft shade of pink, it’s unmistakable. Since the 1950s, the Southern Palms Beach Club & Resort Hotel has been a long-standing staple on the island and a home away from home for many of its guests who have been vacationing here for decades. Located right in the center of the vibrant St. Lawrence Gap and in a beautiful spot right on Dover Beach, the Southern Palms is not only a special place, but it’s also staffed by an incredible team of people. Guests are more than just visitors passing through at the Southern Palms, they’re treated like family and friends. Led by the very wonderful Ms. Britta Pollard who is the managing director, the atmosphere is intimate and personal, something that she feels distinguishes the Southern Palms from other hotels and resorts on the island, or any other Caribbean island, for that matter. “The hotel has been here so many years”, Pollard explains, “it has so much history and so many stories about people that have been coming here for years. There is staff that has worked here for half a lifetime. We have had maids that have been here for 40 years. We’re a family”.

Pollard, who’s been with the hotel for 30 years, knows the Southern Palms inside and out. Spend a little time with her and you’ll see she even knows her guests by their names. A native of Denmark, Pollard moved to Barbados in 1980 and started working for the hotel five years later. “In 1985, I started working here with guest relations, activities, weddings, marketing, and then I became the manager in 1998. During my time as a manager I was given the freedom to make changes, which was a lot of fun. A lot of things happened in terms of the development of the island, especially the access to new products. It changed so much over those years and we were really able to upgrade a lot of things from yesteryear to the current times”. Even though the hotel has always remained its signature shade of pink, a lot of other things have certainly changed on the island since Pollard first arrived on the island. “Barbados has changed, the traveller has changed, the expectations have changed, so all of those changes plays into what we are at the Southern Palms, and what we used to be and where we are now. In those days the traveller was different and their expectations were different than what they are today. Barbados has become much more obtainable for so many people.”


081

There’s also been a shift in where the island’s tourists are coming from. Pollard remembers that in the early days of her career at the Southern Palms, most of the visitors were Canadian but that’s changed over recent years. “Canadians started going to all the Spanish speaking destinations like Mexico, Dominican Republic, Haiti and Cuba” says Pollard, “and I think that has played in to our Canadian market for sure. Barbados has also become more and more accessible from Europe. Our volume is now mainly from the United Kingdom.” The big Barbados boom really started happening in the late 1980s when the lines between the “on” season and the “off” season started to blur and travellers began to come to Barbados all year round, not just during the northern hemisphere’s winter months. “In the late 80s people started coming all year round and there was a lot more happening on the island. There was affluence and generally people started travelling more. You could see that the standard of living was changing and people were getting much more exposed to the outside world. Barbados got much more trendy without loosing its Caribbean flair. I always felt that Barbados, to a large extent, has been able to develop but maintain the Caribbean feeling”. This idea of thoughtful development is exactly Pollard’s philosophy with the Southern Palms. The hotel stands out because of small touches that make its guests feel at home, yet at the same time, the hotel feels modern and up-todate with what people would want from a vacation experience.

Every Monday evening, no matter how many guests are staying in the hotel or what time of year it is, Pollard hosts a rum punch party on the picturesque hotel grounds. Overlooking the beach, this casual get-together gives the opportunity for not only Pollard to chat with guests, but for guests to get to know each other and have a good time. There is also live entertainment at the hotel bar three nights a week, which is always a good time filled with drinks, music and dancing. Pollard prides herself on creating this kind of environment, and these are the little things that keep her guests coming back year after year, generation after generation. The Southern Palms has it’s own restaurant and bar and some of their rooms have kitchenettes with small, fully functional kitchens, but this is by no means an all-inclusive hotel, nor does it strive to be. There’s too much of wonderful Barbados to discover to be confined to one place and stay behind the hotel’s pink walls. “That is where the difference is, because when you look at those Spanish speaking destinations, they have hotels with 1500 rooms and 10 restaurants; they’re massive. Sometimes there is crime and poverty outside of the walls of the property, so the more inclusive the hotel is, the better for you”, says Pollard. “Here in Barbados, you can actually experience the culture and the infrastructure of the island and interact with the people. There are things that are happening at a local level that are trendy, there’s loads of really nice, little cozy restaurants, all you have to do is walk out that door”.

From the staff at the hotel to the great team of guys behind the hotel’s watersports program on the beach (just ask for Sandy), the lifeguards who patrol the shores, the fishermen at the market, and all the men and women you happen to run into just walking down the street, the Bajan people are exceptionally nice, helpful and welcoming. If you smile and say hello, they will certainly smile and greet you back. It’s the people all over this island that really help make the experience of Barbados all the more incredible. “People are very genuine here, very warm and if you show them that you are open to their greeting, they’re so there”, Pollard agrees. “But if you come with a wall, they step right back. Some people don’t understand that. People here are genuinely very warm and friendly but if you put up a wall, they step back. And then people say they’re not very friendly. Well, if you don’t open up to them, they’re not going to open up to you”. When she’s not riding horses or spending time with one of her six grandchildren, Pollard is usually with her staff and guests at the hotel. When I ask her if she ever gets tired of this life, living on such a small island, she shakes her head and smiles. “The whole world arrives here every day, there’s always new people. No day is the same as yesterday and tomorrow is always going to be new”. Pollard is absolutely right.

INTERVIEW

THE LUCK OF THE TIDES b y — JOANNA FOX

Guy Beasley — Chef / Owner

Anyone that thinks the restaurant industry is easy has no idea. The hours are long and grueling, the stress levels are high, the daily demands are immense, and there is the constant pressure to create something that has both prosperity and longevity. Some say the first year of running a restaurant is the hardest to get through. When the second year comes along things get even bleaker. According to the National Restaurant Association, 70% of restaurants that make it through their first year close within the next five. Every year after that, they’re basically holding their breath and rolling the dice, striving to not only meet customer expectations but exceed them time and time again. It’s enough to keep anyone up at night, and for some chef/owners, such as Guy Beasley of The Tides Restaurant in Barbados, it certainly has in the past.

After half a lifetime working as a chef and holding many prominent positions both in Barbados and in Europe, Beasley has finally found himself on solid ground: he’s been the chef of the very sophisticated, memorable and popular Tides Restaurant for the past 15 years. When you consider that the average lifespan of a restaurant is barely a year, that’s definitely something to be proud of. On top of that, 8 years ago, Beasley and his wife Tammie, who also happens to be his business partner, bought the The Tides property outright. So not only do they operate an incredibly successful business, they also own it.

“My mum and dad had put me through private school in England but I wasn’t ever really interested. My sister was doing hotel management so I thought to myself: if she can do that, I can do that. I interviewed at the college and I got into the craft course, which was cooking. I accepted, not knowing anything about it, but once I got into it, I realized it was just my bag. I finally had some success in cooking, whereas I had never found success in school. I was passing my exams and my tests, I was finally doing well at something. That’s how I fell into cooking and it’s really just grown from there”.

For Guy Beasley, it’s really a dream come true after a long and winding career as a chef that all started as a stroke of pure luck back when he was finishing high school in England. Beasley explains:

After Beasley finished his three-year culinary program he got a job in Jersey, the largest of England’s Channel Islands just off the coast of Normandy, France. It was there that Beasley met the people who would essentially change the


091

course of his life: The O’Haras. The O’Haras had been living in Barbados since the 1950s where they owned the Coral Reef Club and happened to be visiting Jersey. Unhappy with his current position, Beasley asked the couple if there was any chance he could work for them. Shortly after, Beasley received a 6-month work permit for Barbados and promptly made his way to an island he knew almost nothing about. Working in Barbados was an incredible experience, but once his work permit ran out, Beasley had to return to England. Being from Coventry, a landlocked city in the center of the country, as soon as Beasley got home he wanted to leave. This time he went to St. Lucia, working as a souschef. After having a taste of Barbados, Beasley found life on this smaller and less-progressive island very challenging. “St. Lucia is very different to Barbados. Although Barbados, at that time in the mid 1980s, was behind the times, St. Lucia was in the dark ages. Really. Like no fresh milk, no cream, no dairy, nothing fresh, very little product there, so it was difficult. In the end I worked for about 4 months and decided this wasn’t for me. I called the O’Haras up again and they told me to come over. They organized another work permit for 6 months and I immediately flew from St. Lucia to Barbados to start at The Sandpiper Hotel. It was also during that time, that I met my wife, Tammie”. After his second work permit was up, Beasley and Tammie moved to London together and began working with Albert and Michel Roux. The

Roux brothers are often considered the godfathers of English cuisine. Beasley learnt from the best while training at their three Michelin Star restaurant, Le Gavroche, and started to find his culinary voice, while Tammie trained as restaurant manager. After 4 years with the Roux brothers, Guy and Tammie decided to get married and move back to Barbados in 1991. Despite their temporary intentions, one thing led to another and the couple started a family, making the island their new permanent home. After an entire career of working for other people, Beasley eventually wanted his own place. Desperate to find something that felt just right, he finally looked at a shell of a property on the West Coast, right on the water in Holetown. With no intentions of liking the place, the moment Beasley saw it he knew that this was meant to be. Guy and Tammie decided to put everything on the line to make this restaurant work. “We had to borrow half-a-million dollars to set the place up, it was scary times for us. We put all the money into the front of the restaurant and spent very little money in the kitchen. I put all second-hand equipment in there and decided that if we made it through the first couple years, we would then spend money fixing that up. The priority was to get the restaurant looking fantastic and that’s where Tammie came in. She has a great eye for detail and she was paramount in setting all of this up”.

The restaurant opened in 2000 and in spite of a couple hiccups along the way, The Tides made it through its first year, then its second, and just kept on going strong from there. Looking back now, neither Beasley nor his wife, in their wildest dreams, could have anticipated how well the restaurant has done over the past 15 years. “Some people thought we were mad for embarking on this venture”, says Beasley smiling. “We proved that we were able to do it”. With a style of cuisine that reflects his culinary past, Beasley likes to keep his food simple and not manipulate the ingredients too much. He likes to keep it as fresh as possible and uses a combination of local and imported produce to ensure only the highest quality. He recently hired a new head chef, Simon Tempro, who also happens to be newly married to Tammie’s niece. Simon trained in Miami and brings a more contemporary perspective to Beasley’s classical cooking style. They balance each other out. It’s not only the food that has kept The Tides on top over all these years though, Guy and Tammie owe a lot of their fortune to the incredible staff led by their devoted restaurant manager, Henry Sealy. “Our staff are phenomenal”, beams Beasley. “They are hugely loyal, dedicated staff. They’re proud of what we’ve all achieved together and we look after them. None of us anticipated how far we would have come and we’re thankful to all our staff who were able to help us keep going”.

LEARNING THE LINGO: BARBADOS LOCAL FOOD ESSENTIALS b y — JOANNA FOX

[ COU- COU ]

[ FISH CUT TER ]

[ CHEFE T TE ]

Cou-cou and flying fish is the national dish of Barbados. The cou-cou half is a hearty starch made up of cornmeal, okra and onions. The recipe for cou-cou originated from West African slaves who were brought to the island in 1644. Passed down from generation to generation, cou-cou became a household staple. The Barbadians even invented a special utensil that looks like a spoonsized cricket bat called a cou-cou stick for stirring the mixture. Once it’s ready, cou-cou resembles a rounder, firmer version of polenta. For the national dish, it’s topped with steamed flying fish and a light herb and garlic tomato sauce.

A cutter is a sandwich made from Bajan salt bread, which is not salty, but a lot like a potato bun: soft, light and fluffy. There are a couple theories of where the word ‘cutter’ came from. One is that the bun is cut, then stuffed with ingredients, hence a cutter, and the other is that this sandwich helps ‘cut’ the alcohol when you’re out drinking. Regardless, the most famous cutters are made with fried fillets of flying fish and topped with lettuce and tomato. Take note that a fish cutter isn’t the real deal without a dousing of some hot pepper sauce.

It’s impossible to visit Barbados without coming across at least one out of the 15 locations of this wildly popular local fast food chain. With its unmistakable bright purple and yellow logo, Chefette has been an island staple since it first opened in 1972 and is famous for its broasted chicken and delicious meat and vegetable rotis. In case you were wondering, broasting is a technique that combines pressure-cooking with deep-frying pieces of chicken that have been marinated and breaded.

[ FLYING FISH ]

[ HOT PEPPER SAUCE ]

[ PIGTAILS ]

The other half of the national dish, flying fish, also happens to be depicted on the Barbadian dollar coin. Sometimes referred to as ‘the land of the flying fish’ this Bajan warm water species is about 25cm long and shaped like a herring. Although they don’t actually fly, they appear to when they swim up to the water’s surface and burst into the air, using their pectoral fins to help them glide up to 40 meters in distance. Flying fish are found at fish markets and stalls all over the island and are typically served steamed or fried.

This is a condiment found all over the island and is an essential accompaniment to spice up any dish. Barbadians will use it with meat, poultry and fish but it’s also great on rice, eggs, potatoes or vegetables. It gets its bright orange colour from scotch bonnet peppers and is mixed with mustard, vinegar, onions, chilli peppers, black pepper and turmeric. Watch out, this sauce definitely carries some real kick.

Salted pigtails aren’t uncommon in Barbadian cuisine and are usually added to soups, braised in stews or mixed in to flavour rice and peas. More recently, locals began to grill the pigtails at stands along the side of the roads and BBQ pigtails have become wildly popular. The pigtails are braised until tender, then spiced, grilled and sauced. Super tender and falling right off the bone, this is definitely a street food not to miss.


103

[ PUDDING AND SOUSE ]

[ BAKES ]

[ SE A EGG ]

Only served on Saturdays, this special meal is found along roadside stands, or from locals who sell it straight from their homes. The pudding part, not unlike sausage, is made from pig intestines that are cleaned, stuffed with a mixture of sweet potato, peppers and special Bajan seasonings, boiled and then seared in a pan to get a nice dark colour. Served on top is the souse, a mixture of boiled pig’s head and feet, chopped up and served with pickled onions, cucumbers, limes, peppers, and parsley. This is definitely a dish for the more adventurous eaters and is best washed down with a local Banks beer. Some say this is a Barbadian version of the famous Scottish dish, haggis.

Bakes are small, pan-fried cakes that are made up of flour, water, salt and sugar. They were once considered a household food staple because the ingredients were inexpensive and usually found in most kitchen pantries. Nowadays, spices like cinnamon and nutmeg are added for more flavour. Bakes are usually served in the morning for breakfast with eggs, as an afternoon snack or along side fish cakes as a meal. There is an old Bajan song with lyrics that go: “Fish cakes and bakes, every Bajan does make, so when it’s time to celebrate, it’s Soca fish cakes and bakes”.

Contrary to what this might bring to mind, Barbadian sea egg is actually a species of sea urchin found in the sea grass beds and shallow reefs around the island. They are a dark reddish-brown colour with white spines and usually grow to about 10 or 15cm in diameter. Sea eggs are a delicacy here and because of overfishing, there’s a ban on when they can be harvested. If you happen to be in Barbados during the sea egg season from September to December and enjoy the delicious golden roe of urchin, you’re definitely in the right place to sample the goods.

[ MACARONI PIE ]

[ CONKIES ]

Known simply as ‘pie’ on the island, this is a signature side dish that everyone can relate to. Ask a local about it and they all seem to have their own versions of this Bajan comfort food. Essentially, it’s an amped up version of macaroni and cheese. They use macaroni tube pasta rather than elbow pasta here and the mac and cheddar cheese mixture is mixed with a variation of onions, mustard, pepper, hot sauce, and ketchup. It’s then placed in a casserole dish, topped with breadcrumbs and baked in the oven for pie perfection.

This sweet, cornmeal based dessert was originally made to commemorate Guy Fawkes Day until Barbados became independent of Britain in 1966. From that year on, conkies were made to celebrate the island’s own Independence Day on November 30th. Conkies are a mixture of cornmeal, coconut, sweet potato and pumpkin, wrapped in a banana leaf and steamed. They look very similar to Mexican tamales. Other ingredients can be added such as spices, sugar, raisins and butter to give the conkies more complexity.

INTERVIEW

In the film, “La Grande Bellezza,” the lead character is an aging rogue who has sought refuge in his memories from the vulgar absurdities of modern Rome. Near the end of the film, he contemplates the solitary word of a withered mystic. “Roots,” she intones, “roots are important.”

SMOOTH OPERATOR b y — TIMOTHY DUGDALE

It is no small irony that Woody Allen, far from his native New York, contracted the Italian actor and Barbados acolyte Fabio Massimo Bonini to appear in the director’s cinematic mash note, “To Rome with Love.” Allen shot a considerable number of scenes with Bonini yet, in the end, what began as a small part became smaller still. “I think it is one of his worst movies,” says Bonini with a barbed chuckle. Bonini exudes an air of sprezzatura, a graceful nonchalance that is neither arrogant nor transparent. We talked via Skype and he insisted that we keep the cameras on, even if it compromised the signal. “It’s better, like we’re in a bar drinking something, no?” With a place in Key Biscayne and a home in Barbados, Bonini is in exile from an Italy that has been getting on his nerves for years yet he regularly returns because it is from his roots in Modena that his boutique condiment producer, Balsamico Bonini, was born.

Fabio Massimo Bonini — Actor / Business Man

— TD: How did you come to live in Barbados? FMB: I have two friends who have lived there for twenty-five years. They’re directors who used to work in Italian television. I worked with them so when they moved, I visited them. I told myself,

“One day I am going to live here.” And that’s what I did. My whole life I have been fighting to work, to enjoy a good life and then you don’t receive back what you put into the system, it’s time to leave. So I left Italy. Plus I have a daughter in the United States because I was married to an American. In Barbados, you always have beautiful weather. It’s a beautiful island, the people are nice. I’ve been throughout the Caribbean and for me Barbados is the top place. It’s a big island so you don’t get tired of it. It’s well-connected to everywhere in the world. You’re on an island but you feel like you are in the center of the world. — TD: Yes and you’re off the maps of undesirable elements in the world. FMB: Absolutely right. If I want to go shopping, there are beautiful shops at Lime Grove. You can feel like you’re in Miami or Europe. But the place I live on the East Coast of the island, the wild part, is Cattlewash. It’s a local neighbourhood but you’re fifteen minutes to Speightstown by car. You can’t get anywhere in Key Biscayne in fifteen minutes. I love my place. When I go to bed, I hear the music of the sea, a real roar. It’s pure nature. That’s what I need in Barbados. — TD: Yesterday while I was having lunch, I got it into my head that I wanted ice cream. Just a little ball of vanilla ice cream but I put balsamic reduction, olive oil and a bit of sea salt on it. Heaven.

FMB: There’s a Michelin-starred restaurant in San Francisco, Acquerello. It’s a client of ours and they make vanilla ice cream with balsamico. They’ve been doing it for twenty years. The owner is from Bologna. They have three dishes on the menu that use my balsamic oil. The reason I am in the United States right now is to spread the news of my product. It’s not something for a big distributor because it’s a product that needs to be explained. You know it’s made with cooked grape must and it takes twelve years before it’s ready for bottling. And it’s pretty expensive.

of barrels, all of different woods. You keep moving it. The magic happens because there is always a little bit of last year’s balsamico in each barrel. There is nothing mathematical about it. The balsamico master does this purely as an art. He uses his nose and his mouth. Plus you have the weather. Was it a hot summer? Was there a lot of wind? How did this affect the density and the evaporation? You start with 100 kilos of grapes and after twenty five years, you have 1 kilo of product. It’s an incredible process. 2+2 could equal 5 or 6.

— TD: Balsamico is very versatile and you only need a little bit of it to add incredible flavour. FMB: It’s a killing joke to heat it up because the density of this product is a natural density. Picture a beef tartare with just a bit of this balsamico or pumpkin ravioli with only olive oil, grated Parmesan and a touch of balsamico.

By March of next year, we will have a new facility, complete with a few bedrooms and a kitchen to host events. But what I really want is anyone in the world who has the money to create his or her own battery of barrels where they are producing their very own private label of balsamico. It’s a luxury idea but in the end, you’re spending a lot less than you would to buy the regular product. And if you’re a top chef, you have real control over a key product in your kitchen.

— TD: Tell me about Modena and the tradition of balsamico. FMB: We go back to the 14th century. Even before the time of Christ, Virgil talked about cooked grape must in his “Georgics”. The name balsamico means cure and even my own grandmother took a little spoonful of balsamico after dinner to help the digestion. To make balsamico, you squeeze the grape, you cook the juice that comes out, the must. When it reaches the right sugar concentration, we take it out and put it in big barrels for a year. Then we move it to a battery
