That makes City Hall & Arts Centre, Church Hamilton 441•295•9428 | www.bng.bm the art of stained glass something unusually special and if you have ever had opportunity to enter a gothic cathedral such as Chartres, near Paris, you will know what I mean. If you have not yet had that privilege, visiting the Bermuda National Gallery for the Vivienne Gardner exhibition will give you a slight hint of the magic of such an experience. This BNG exhibition is, however, not intended to replicate a visit to a gothic cathedral, but to showcase the work of one of Bermuda’s “Living Treasures,” and in doing that, the BNG curator, Sophie Cressell and assistant, Will Collieson have created a brilliantly successful exhibition. Vivienne Gardner came to Bermuda in 1940 with her parents and thus, Bermuda became the beneficiary of this most accomplished and versatile artist. For she not only creates stained glass windows, she is also a sculptor, muralist, mosaic artist, skillful draftsperson and so much more. In a recently published book on Vivienne Gardner, she wrote of her growing-up years in Bermuda during World War II and how with all the shortages, she had to resort to finding art materials from discarded cellophane, metallic foil, candy wrappers and shards of colored glass. Note that in all these materials, she was attracted to either the transparent or materials that reflected light. It seems that Vivienne Gardner was destined, not only to be an artist in the generic sense, she was predestined to be a stained glass artist. In addition to the Bermuda National Gallery show, examples of Vivienne Gardner’s stained glass art can be seen at quite a number of Bermuda’s parish churches, such as St. Peter’s West, St. Mark’s, The Anglican Cathedral, St. John’s, St. Paul’s, St. Mary’s and St. Ann’s. Other churches, such as St. Andrews Presbyterian and the Centenary United Methodist church

… About Fine Cuisine and Famous Guests at the Princess Since its opening, the Princess Hotel has been known for fine cuisine, professional service and genuine hospitality.

Bermuda Golf Diversity One of Bermuda’s best features is the variety of golf courses on the island. Resorts around the world struggle with the ability in providing a product that can accommodate a broad range of golfers from beginner to expert. That’s not the case in Bermuda. With 7 courses on the island, Bermuda can satisfy the needs of anyone including golf as part of their travel experience. Let’s take a little tour around the island and explore the golf opportunities available to visitors. On the north shore, Ocean View offers 9-holes with 18 different tee positions providing the opportunity for 9 or 18 holes. Ocean View is a short drive from downtown Hamilton. Across the harbor from Hamilton is the beautiful Belmont Hills Golf Club. Belmont was recently renovated and favors the more accurate golfer as opposed to the power player. Belmont Hills is a challenging layout and has a great staff available to provide guests the service they desire. Continuing towards the Parish of Southampton, all golfers will enjoy the Riddell’s Bay Golf and Country Club. The oldest course on the island, Riddell’s Bay was built on a 600 acre peninsula. The course is golfer friendly and has outstanding views as well as a variety of risk reward golf holes. The Fairmont Southampton Hotel is just across the road from Riddell’s Bay and boasts a golf course on site. The Fairmont course is an 18-hole par three course. Golf Digest honored the course as one of the top 100 par three facilities in the world. A great facility for beginners! Heading west, our next stop is Port Royal Golf Club. A Robert Trent Jones design. Port Royal recently completed a significant renovation and hosted the 2009 PGA Grand Slam of Golf. PRGC will also host the 2010 event. Golfers will use every club in their bag on this course. Don’t forget your camera. The 16th hole is the most photographed hole on the island and offers golfers a 235 yard shot with tee and green resting along the Atlantic Ocean. Reversing our direction towards the airport, golfers should plan to play Tuckers Point Golf Club. Tuckers also recently completed a course and clubhouse renovation and both turned out to be spectacular. Tuckers Point prides itself on personal service. Next door, the Mid Ocean Golf Club sits proudly as one of the world’s top 100 courses. The course has hosted some of the world’s most famous dignitaries. Robert Trent Jones added his touches to the course in 1953 and today golfers playing Mid Ocean find themselves enjoying the cliff-side views of the ocean while trying to manage the magnificent layout. Golf is available to non-members on Monday, Wednesday and Friday only. No matter your playing ability, the courses will meet your needs while their staff provides the best in Bermudian hospitality. Even if your game isn’t tour ready, the memories will last forever.

Business

Rims 2010 In olden times, grizzled men would journey great distances to further commerce, with the trade routes gaining a reputation for the arduous travel required. Today, grizzled dudes and chicks hop on a plane without a thought, to journey even greater distances to further commerce. No event in the calendar stirs the sinew of the Bermuda insurance and reinsurance industry more than the convention, educational conference and epic bash that is RIMS, the Risk & Insurance Management Society’s annual get-together. Held each year in April, the event used to attract 10,000 insurance people to such cities as San Diego, New Orleans or, this year, Boston. Smaller numbers have become the norm, what with the global economic system broken. RIMS is ... well, if you’re not into insurance, it would be the deadliest game imaginable. Thousands of insurers gathered in one place at one time for no particular reason would seem like the third circle of hell to a teenager, for example. Area hotels and restaurants clog up with the risk brigade. A ghastly first-night rock and roll ball is followed by dispersal to every neighbourhood watering-hole. Walking around whatever city RIMS is in, you sense that you’re only seeing what the city looks like when it’s congested with insurance types. What it’s like normally is impossible to say. Bermuda fights way above its weight at RIMS. Every year, a phalanx of more than 100 Bermuda suits and suitettes flies in. The Bermuda booth was once a charming little cottage; now it’s a two-storey affair. The upper deck, curtained off, is for private conversations, deals and romantic trysts. The hotel can be a little public for any such business, given that everyone in the place is attending the conference and might be a colleague, or your spouse. I went to Orlando last year. It was a chance to catch up with old friends ... and then there are the freebies. All the major insurance companies have booths at the trade show that lies at the heart of the RIMS experience. Small gifts are offered to attendees if they will but spend a few minutes chatting with, or listening to, booth staff. Or you can just steal the stuff. No one cares. Freebies are often highly useful and desirable devices. The Bermuda bag is always the hit of the show. Yup, they go nuts for a free bag. Lloyd’s gave me a flashlight one year that will work forever. They’re now trying to come up with a way to make me live that long. Freebies can, however, be even less useful than airport gifts. Pens and squeezy rubber objects have been in vogue since RIMS began, in 1703 (approx). I speak for every attendee when I say: give us cash instead. We will then decide what junk to buy to take home to our families and mistresses. We’re big boys and girls. We can handle it. And then you wouldn’t have to stamp your logo on 10,000 coasters before burning 9,900 of them.

Dockyard and Western Parishes Bermuda Train Company For inquiries please call 441 236-5972 Dockyard Tour: Our train conductor combines humorous stories, colorful anecdotes and fascinating historical information into a 90-minute narrative tour. The tour highlights such areas as Lagoon Park, The Royal Naval Cemetery, the Clock Tower Building, Somerset Village, Bermuda Maritime Museum and so much more. THE ROYAL NAVAL DOCKYARD, Ireland Island, Sandys Work began on this massive complex in 1809, not long after the conclusion of the Napoleonic Wars and just before the War of 1812. Envisioned as a strategic British military outpost that would make Bermuda the “Gibraltar of the West,” the Royal Naval Dockyard was built by slave and convict labour. The Dockyard locked its gates in 1951. Since then, the seventy-five acre site has been painstakingly renovated to accommodate museums, a movie theatre, restaurants, The Arts Centre and the Bermuda Craft Market. BERMUDA MARITIME MUSEUM, Ireland Island, Sandys Located in the Keep of the Royal Naval Dockyard, this museum has become one of the island’s most frequently visited destinations since being opened by HM Queen Elizabeth II in 1975. Exhibits chronicle both Bermuda’s association with the Royal Naval and its own interesting maritime history. Open 9:30am5pm daily except Christmas Day. Last admission is at 4:00pm. Adults $10, Seniors $8, Children (5 to 15) $5.

Erected around 1620 by Governor Nathaniel Butler, it was where the House of Assembly and Supreme Court held session before Hamilton became Bermuda’s capital in 1815. The State House is open to the public 10am-4pm on Wednesdays only. THE UNFINISHED CHURCH Duke of Kent Street, St. George’s The impressive Gothic vestige that looms over the town of St. George’s was begun in 1870 as a replacement for St. Peter’s, which had fallen into a state of serious disrepair. Designed by William Hay, the Scottish-born architect who later drew the plans for Hamilton’s cathedral, the St. George’s church was abandoned in 1899 when near completion. FORT ST. CATHERINE St. Catherine’s Point, St. George’s Fort St. Catherine, stands on the site of one of the four towers that Governor Richard Moore erected along Bermuda’s coast around 1613. None of these original towers, the first English forts in the New World, survive. Rebuilt in the eighteenth century, the present, completely restored structure dates from the mid-nineteenth century and is home to fascinating exhibits including military guns and weapons. Open daily 10:00am-4:00pm. Admission: Adults $7, Seniors $5, Children $3 CARTER HOUSE Southside Road, St. David’s An example of early vernacular architecture, Carter House was probably built in the 1720s by John Hayward and his wife Martha, reputedly a descendant of Christopher Carter, one of the two Sea Venture survivors who stayed behind when the vessel’s other passengers continued on to Virginia in 1610. Acquired by the St. David’s Historical Society, this small house with its unusual ‘welcoming arm’ stairs has been converted into a museum that commemorates the pre-war agrarian traditions of St. David’s. ST. DAVID’S LIGHTHOUSE Mount Hill, St. David’s Constructed of Bermuda stone, this 55-foot structure is one of two local lighthouses. Lit for the first time in 1879, its fixed white light enabled navigators to take cross bearings with the flashing beacon emitted by Gibbs Hill lighthouse way up the coast in Southampton.

Take the City of Hamilton Walkway of History Tour The City of Hamilton Walkway of History Tour was officially launched in early October 2009 to commemorate Bermuda’s 400th anniversary of settlement on the island. The tour was devised and implemented by the Bermuda 2009 Committee and the Corporation of Hamilton to identify important sites of architectural, social, cultural or historical significance in the City. A brochure was created to enable pedestrians to learn about the history of the city on the self-guided tour that may be taken as a whole or in parts. Plaques have been installed in the sidewalk at various points along the route of the tour. Plaque #1 is located at Nellie’s Walk on Church Street in front of the City Hall. The tour will take about two hours to complete and the usual safety and road traffic precautions must be obeyed.

Some of the historical sights that will be seen during the tour include: The City Hall

The City Hall was designed by Bermudian architect Wilfred Onions and completed in 1960. It sits on the site of the Hamilton Hotel, Bermuda’s first major hotel. The Eastern Gate of Victoria Park on Cedar Avenue

Victoria Park was developed in 1889 in what had been a low-lying boggy area called Deane’s Bottom after Alfred Deane whose Springfield Academy (founded 1848) students had used the area as their playground. The bandstand was sent from Scotland to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Jubilee and soon became a popular venue for military and other concerts. Cedar Avenue

On the east side of Cedar Avenue is the Leopards Club, founded in February 1949. The house was built about 1850 as a private home by Samuel Prudden Watson, merchant, United States consular agent and member for Pembroke in the House of Assembly. Somewhat changed architecturally, the building is now a club, a place for political education and site for black entrepreneurship and entertainment. Corner Cedar Avenue and Angle Street

Designed by Lawrence Smart and built in 1931 in Spanish style, St Theresa’s Cathedral is the spiritual home of Bermuda’s Roman Catholics. The tower, surmounted by a 13 foot aluminum cross with its life size statue of St Theresa in its niche, was added in 1947. Junction of North and Angle Streets

The former Pembroke Sunday School was built in the 1820s and extended about 1882 to the design of Dr Henry Hinson, whose work is evident in a number of Bermuda’s parish churches and St Paul AME. Now a community centre, it is appropriately called The Centre. To learn more about these sights and others described on the tour, stop by City Hall to pick up a brochure.

D o ckyard to St. George’s Continued from 59 THE SESSIONS HOUSE, Parliament Street, Hamilton The Sessions House is where Bermuda legislates its affairs. A simple, four-square Georgian structure when erected in the first quarter of the nineteenth century, the Sessions House was embellished on its southern, ceremonial front during the Victorian era to coincide with Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee in 1887. The house sits at 10am on Fridays from November until it concludes its business, usually by July. For additional information call 441 292-7408.

Completed in 1841, this important building, which houses the Premier’s offices, is where the Senate meets every Wednesday. The Cenataph outside the Cabinet Building, a replica of the one at Whitehall in London, memorializes Bermudians who gave their lives in the two world wars. CITY HALL, Church Street, Hamilton Completed in 1960, City Hall is located in the very heart of Hamilton and is truly the indispensable hub of community activity.

St. George’s and Eastern Parishes St. George’s — a UNESCO World Heritage Site — is where it all began, when in July 1609 the Sea Venture — en route from England to the new colony of Jamestown Virginia — encountered a violent storm and was shipwrecked on Bermuda’s reefs less than a mile off what is now St. Catherine’s Point. Miraculously, all on board survived the disaster and swam ashore to Gates Bay, located at the eastern end of St. George’s not far from the channel where modern cruise ships enter the town’s snug harbour today. However, Bermuda’s first arrivals encountered a very different place from the placid eighteenth-century town that welcomes today’s visitor. World Heritage Centre Located in the heart of the Town of St. George’s, the World Heritage Centre is a key orientation and resource point for visitors and students of all ages. Celebrating the mission of The St. George’s Foundation, the World Heritage Centre is central to the promotion of the Town and Parish of St. George’s. Lively, interactive histories are told through state-of-the art technology, participatory talks, historical re-enactments, and an ongoing Continued on page 54

Every Wednesday & Saturday at noon duing the winter months the town crier, colorfully decked out in tunic, breeches and tricorn hat, rings his bell and shouts “Oyez! Oyez!” (Hear Ye!).

During the American Civil War its upper floor was occupied by a Confederate Shipping Agent from where he organized the shipment of arms, uniforms and war supplies through the Union blockade to the South. It now houses the Confederate Museum and hosts the “Rogues and Runners” exhibit, highlighting Bermuda’s participation in the American Civil War. Open Mon., Tue., Wed., & Sat. 10am-4pm. Admission $5. 441 297-1423. ST. PETER’S CHURCH, Duke of York Street Situated in appropriate loftiness above the main street of St. George’s, St. Peter’s Church is one of the island’s most beloved landmarks and is the oldest anglican church continuously occupied in the New World. The first church on the site was constructed in 1612 of native cedar posts and fitted with small windows and a thatched roof. This original edifice was replaced seven years later by a more permanent structure that lasted almost a hundred years, until the hurricane of 1712. Following this disaster, the church was again rebuilt. During the next one hundred and fifty years this early eighteenth-century structure was augmented by additions, fittings and furniture that make St. Peter’s the culturally rich trove it is today. Open Mon. to Sat. 10am-5pm. Anglican service 11:15am Sundays. THE OLD RECTORY, Broad Alley, St. George’s, behind St. Peter’s Church Built in 1699, this charming cottage on one of the numerous picturesque back streets in St. George’s is one of Bermuda’s oldest houses. Acquired in 1700 by Captain George Dew, an unsuccessful privateer who became a St. George’s assemblyman, The Old Rectory acquired its current name when it became the residence of the Rev. Alexander Richardson in the last quarter of the eighteenth century. ST. GEORGE’S HISTORICAL SOCIETY MUSEUM, Duke of Kent Street and Featherbed Alley Built around 1734 as a private residence, Mitchell House is a fine example of eighteenth-century Bermudian domestic architecture. A building whose interesting history includes service as a tavern, Mitchell House has been home to the St. George’s Historical Society since 1920. Open 10am-4pm Mon-Fri. Admission $5. 441 297-0715.

ACCOMMODATIONS & Fractional Ownership by Sally Kyle

Vacation Ownership in Bermuda The St. George’s Club is a seventy-one unit Cottage Colony, in ten acres of manicured grounds, overlooking the old town of St George’s, (a World Heritage Site), its harbour and the surrounding North Shore area. The town is only a few minutes walk away and we have a shuttle to our very own beach at Achilles Bay on the other side of the golf course. Here you will find one of our restaurant and bars, Blackbeard’s Hideout, offering the most spectacular sunsets on the island and delicious seafood. Our one and two-bedroom cottages are self contained units, all with fully equipped kitchens and the capability of sleeping from four to eight persons. Our other restaurant, Griffin’s Bistro, has magnificent views of the harbor and is located in the main Clubhouse. Here you will also find our convenience store, laundry and a small gymnasium. The Club also offers plenty of opportunity for relaxation whether it is around one of our three pools, one of which is heated for the cooler months, or a game of tennis at one of our flood-lit tennis courts. The St George’s Golf course is currently closed for reconstruction, however it will be replaced with a world class Course designed by Nick Faldo. In light of this, we are able to offer our members privileges at the Riddell’s Bay Golf and Country Club, Bermuda’s oldest golf course. Vacation ownership offers consumers the opportunity to purchase a fully furnished condominium style vacation cottage for only a percentage of the cost of a full condominium or vacation home ownership and at a guaranteed time. Instead of tying up all your capital by buying a vacation house which will probably remain empty much of the year, you simply purchase the weeks you need. Each year you pay an assessment fee for the time you “use” the unit and The Club facilities, instead of paying year-round fees as with a condominium or house. It also provides a means to reduce the impact of inflation and escalating rental and hotel rates. Vacation ownership differs from Fractional Ownership in that it is a right-to-use for a finite time and consequently by design a “fraction” of the price. To put it another way, you only have a personal property right, not “real” property. This is granted by the developer, under agreement with the Bermuda Government, for the use of the property for a designated time period each year. You also have related access to the Club house facilities and amenities as per the contract. The St George’s Club is an RCI affiliated resort and this gives our membership the ability to exchange to resorts all over the world. Interestingly over 85% of our membership chooses to return to The St. George’s Club each year for its unique experience. The St Georges’ Club is now able to offer 50 year leases and is Bermuda’s premier and only vacation ownership resort at this time. For more information about ownership in The St. George’s Club call +1 (441) 297-1222 or visit our web site at www. stgeorgesclub.com.

BONE FISH BAR & GRILL 6 Dockyard Terrace, Royal Naval Dockyard, 441 234-5151 This dynamic restaurateur captivates his customers with his enthusiasm for life and his work in particular. Chef Livio’s new venture in Dockyard has inspired him to create his menu with an emphasis on cuisine that he feels suits the island’s lifestyle. “I like to make the most of our fresh fish and local produce,” he told us, “natural, simple, fast and balanced dishes because, like Italian cuisine, this is best suited to my abilities.” He proudly told us “seafood, seafood, the best from Bermuda waters, but with my love of the style of Mediterranean cooking, there is something for everyone, including favorite recipes from my mother!” Chef Livio began his training at age eleven in a hotel in his village home of Cortina D’Ampezzo in Italy where he was born and raised. He proudly relates how he has cooked for famous people such as President Carter, Michael Douglas, David Bowie, Iman and even the President of Italy. “I always chose to work in an environment of a very high standard, alongside many respected head chefs”, thus he trained and worked in some of Italy’s most prestigious hotels and restaurants….always remembering that to be the best chef meant “your heart was in your hands!” Today Chef Livio prides himself on maintaining this rule so, with very few exceptions, everything on his menu is made in his kitchen. He emphasizes that he likes to ‘create’ what his customers want, then acknowledges that this should be the role of a true chef, one who has been trained by the best. The happy atmosphere in his lively restaurant is enhanced by the fun Continued on page 84

Guest ACCOMMODATIONs Bermuda’s resort hotels, cottage colonies and guest houses range from cosmopolitan to cosy, secluded to opulent, ocean views to golf courses. Your desires, dreams and requirements will come true in the many styles of accommodation that are available in Bermuda. You might choose to stay in a cottage that has been built on stilts over the ocean with a sunset that goes on forever. For something a little different still, choose to stay on a luxury yacht and experience a unique perspective that will be all your own. If you are seeking some personal time, take a massage and facial from the many spas that are located in the resort hotels before your evening entertainment begins. If one of Bermuda’s golf courses gives you passion, choose the many resorts where the backyard is the first hole. The ocean view is often distracting, but remember to keep your head down. The islands of Bermuda offer the style of accommodation that suits the most discerning visitor. You will fall in love with Bermuda at first sight. Go one step further and discover the fractional ownership opportunities of owning a piece of the rock. A handful of beautiful specialty resorts offer properties for purchase.

Old Man Winter, Pack Your Bags! The colder months have already begun to subside and now we are looking forward to Spring’s arrival. The foods we crave, like the weather, change with the seasons. Therefore, the ingredients for our menu planning are going through changes as well. As the saying goes, March comes in like a Lion and goes out like a Lamb. So I’m presenting you with two unique ideas, one for the departure of winter, the other for the arrival of Spring. No lamb or lion dishes, just some distinctive and creative ideas. CANNELLONI BEAN AND PORTOBELLO BRUSCHETTA Serves 8 Ingredients • Olive oil • 1 medium onion, chopped • 1 cup peeled and diced eggplant • ¼ teaspoon chili pepper • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper • 5 cloves garlic, minced • 1 19-ounce can of cannelloni beans, rinsed and drained • 4 or 5 whole, peeled canned tomatoes, preferably Italian, coarsely chopped and juices reserved. • 4 Portobello mushrooms, cleaned, stemmed, and sliced • 1/4-inch thick • 1 medium sized loaf country Italian bread, cut into 12-14 thin slices and toasted • ½ cup pesto • 12-14 slices mozzarella cheese • Fresh basil to garnish Method Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Over medium heat, in a large sauté pan, sauté onion in olive oil until tender, 5-6 minutes. Add eggplant, chili pepper, several large pinches of salt, and 1-2 tablespoons more oil. Cook over medium high heat, stirring frequently, until eggplant is golden brown and tender, about 2 minutes. Lower heat to medium, add garlic and continue to sauté for several minutes more. Stir in beans and chopped tomatoes and their juice. Remove from heat

and set aside. (Eggplant and bean mixture may be tightly sealed and stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 days before assembling the bruschetta.) Toss mushroom slices in oil and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Place slices on prepared baking sheet and place in oven. Roast until soft and fully cooked, 4 or 5 minutes. To assemble bruschetta, spread each slice of toasted bread with pesto. Divide roasted Portobello slices among bruschetta and spoon bean-andeggplant mixture over the mushrooms. Top each with a slice of mozzarella. Place bruschetta on baking sheet lined with foil or parchment paper. Pair with Casillero del Diablo Reserve Sauvignon Blanc A crisp, aromatic counterpart to the creamy, earthy notes of this dish - a match made in heaven! Casillero del Diablo Reserva Sauvignon Blanc is the color of straw with green hues. the aromas are fresh and attractive with hints of citrus, peaches and gooseberry. On the palate, the wine is elegant, round, and mouthfelling. the wine is also balanced with attractive crisp acidity. SPICED PORK EMPANADAS Makes 32 empanadas Ingredients Filling • 2 tablespoons olive oil • ¾ pound ground pork • Kosher salt • 1 large onion, diced • 5 cloves garlic, minced • 2 teaspoons Spanish paprika (or to taste) • 2 tablespoons tomato paste • ½ cup pitted green olives, coarsely chopped • ¼ cup golden raisins • ¼ cup hot water • 3 hard-boiled eggs, coarsely chopped • ½ cup parsley, coarsely chopped • Freshly ground black pepper Dough • 4 cups all-purpose flour • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt • 12 ounces (3 sticks) unsalted butter, cubed and chilled • 8 ounces cream cheese, cubed and chilled • 1 egg yolk combined with 2 teaspoons ice water • 2 eggs lightly whisked with 2 teaspoons cold water, for egg wash • ½ cup sliced almonds, for tops of empanadas Go to www.thisweek.bm for the the remainder of this recipe

Dining in Bermuda is an experience on its own. Imagine that you’re at one of Bermuda’s pink beaches savoring a local delicacy, the Bermuda fishcake sandwich. If you would like to experience what Bermudians love, then you would order the works. An old-timer once told me that Bermudians invented “the works.” Even if that statement isn’t accurate, the Bermuda fish sandwich with the works is like nothing I have experienced before. Local and internationally recognized chefs create a dining adventure that will take your taste buds to a new level. Wines and spirits from around the world will be matched to perfection with each course. Go back in time; several restaurants date back to the 18th and 19th centuries. The globe is represented in the restaurants that dot Bermuda and it’s easy to locate a restaurant close to the ocean, with views that will inspire all your senses. Bacci Fairmont Southampton, 441 238-8000. Italian with a Passion! Delight in authentic Italian Cuisine delivered with fine dining flair in a stylish yet relaxed family atmosphere. Chef Clady’s has creatively blended the very best of classical Italian traditions with the latest world-class cooking trends to create a symphony of original recipes and blended flavours from select regions of Italy. Each item is presented like a work of art and each evening their culinary team select special dishes to enhance their a la carte menu. Inspired by the pastel and romantic beauty of Bermuda, Bacci is a celebration of life, wine and great food of Italy. You will always be greeted with hospitality, warmth and enthusiasm and you will want to return again and again. Open for dinner from 6pm -10pm. Dress Code is Smart Casual Bamboo 65 Somerset Road, Sandys, 441 234-2600 Bamboo’s Sushi Bar’s elegant and sleek ambiance sets the stage for unique creations of authentic, traditional and modern Japanese cuisine. In addition to traditional raw and contemporary cooked fish preparations, the menu at The Somerset location includes a selection of other innovative & fusion salads, curries, kebabs, and pastas inspired by the global travels and experiences of the restaurant staff. There are amazing meat and vegetarian dishes to choose from such as China Ribs, Bourbon Chicken and Beer-Battered Rockfish. Bamboo offers a varied sake collection and also feature selections of wine, beer and signature cocktails to complement the menu. Bolero Brasserie 95 Front Street, Hamilton, Bermuda, 441 292-4507 bolerobrasserie@northrock.bm In just over two and half years since Jonny opened Bolero, it has become a favourite place for locals, business people and visitors alike and is arguably one of the most popular and busiest restaurants in Hamilton. In keeping with the concept of a traditional Brasserie, Bolero is about simplicity, the food is straightforward, honest and unpretentious. Continued on page 80

Chef of the Month … Executive Chef

Leigh Thurston

I was born in Chelmsford, Essex, England. I have been in the chefs industry for 13 years. Before coming to Bermuda nearly 5 years ago, I worked in Greece and France. I have always wanted to be a chef. I can’t see myself doing any thing else, sitting behind a desk isn’t for me as I am a hands on person. I strive for perfection. During service I get a good buzz on, from that first order, to the last, the long hours, I love it. I get a great deal of satisfaction when I see a dish come together and tastes as good as it looks. Scallop receipt: Cauliflower puree Butter ¼ head cauliflower Salt 2 bay leaves Pepper ½ quart milk Roughly chop the cauliflower, place in pan, add bay leaves milk, salt, simmer for 4 minutes, Separate cauliflower from the milk, Place cauliflower into blender; slowly add milk back to the cauliflower until smooth, Finish with butter 100 grams peas Pepper Butter Salt In robocoupe add frozen peas, pulse for about 15 seconds In pan add butter, add peas and cook for about 2 minutes Pancetta sauce 250 grams good quality 1 cup of white wine Pancetta 1 cup chicken stock 1 shallot diced ½ quart of cream 3 cloves of garlic sliced 1 tbsp olive oil In a pan add olive oil, garlic, shallots, cook until tender, Add Pancetta and cook for about 2-4 minutes.
