Letter from the Mayor
LETTER FROM THE MAYOR OF HAMILTON THE RT. WOR. Graeme Outerbridge Welcome to the City of Hamilton As the newly elected Mayor, it is my honor to welcome you to the City of Hamilton, one of the smallest cities in the world, rich in history, culture and heritage. The original Town of Hamilton was incorporated by an Act of the Bermuda Legislature in 1793. Located in a sheltered harbour in the central and largest parish, Pembroke, it was named in honour of the then Governor, Captain Henry Hamilton. The town quickly became the capital of Bermuda when the seat of government was transferred from St. George in 1815. Following the completion of the Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity, situated some 400 yards east of the present City Hall, the status of City was conferred upon the Town of Hamilton in 1897 to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Victoria. The City of Hamilton has a resident population of about 1,100 and an estimated daytime population of approximately 13,340 (40% of Bermuda’s working population). This number increases significantly when tourists are added to the equation. In addition to the excellent cuisine that can be found in the city’s many varied restaurants, the shopping is easy and the historic sites are a must see. I can attest to the fact that Hamilton is a delightful capital to get around on foot. Measuring about a quarter square mile, the entire area can be walked in about 30 minutes however, exploring, discovering and enjoying the sites, both historic and new, can take hours, maybe even days. Anyone wishing to explore the City in depth can participate in the Walkway of History tour that was created as part of Bermuda’s 400th Anniversary, in 2009. Plaques have been installed in the sidewalk at various points along the route to identify important sites of architectural, social, cultural or historical significance in the City. This self-°©‐guided tour starts and ends on Church Street in front of the City Hall, and enables the pedestrian to learn about the history of the city and may be taken as a whole or in parts. Brochures can be obtained from City Hall. An electronic version can be found on www.cityofhamilton.bm
Some of the sights to discover include: City Hall Opened in 1960, the building is of traditional Bermuda architecture with a Scandinavian influence in respect of the tower. In 2010 we celebrated the building’s 50th anniversary by reproducing a number of activities that took place at the opening, including inviting some of the workers who helped with the construction. City Hall’s amenities include a theatre, two galleries housing the Bermuda National Gallery and the Bermuda Society of Arts, the Mayor’s Parlour, and the administrative offices of the City of Hamilton. Victoria Park Bandstand Painstakingly dismantled, refurbished and reassembled in 2009, the Victorian Bandstand was originally shipped to Bermuda in 1888 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee in June 1887. At an unveiling ceremony in 2009, a number of the island’s schools contributed items to a Time Capsule buried in one of the posts of the bandstand to be opened in 2109. Wesley Square A purpose built recreational area officially opened in July 2009 to commemorate the men and women who in 1959, with bravery, tenacity and a vision for a better Bermuda, staged a peaceful theatre boycott and protested for equality, freedom and the end to segregation. City Parks There are four large public parks within the City of Hamilton that are open to the general public between 8am to sunset every day. They are: Fort Hamilton, Barr’s Bay Park, Victoria Park and Queen Elizabeth Park recently named in honor of the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, the second longest reigning monarch in British history. Again, welcome to Hamilton, Bermuda at it best. Yours sincerely,

It’s a New Year By Roger Crombie Here’s a theory for you. It sounds kinda mad, but it isn’t. It’s probably the sanest thing you’ll hear this year. You might need to relax a little to fully appreciate it, but that’ll be good for you. You’ve been looking a little peaky lately. You know how January 1 is New Year’s Day? Well, what if it weren’t? OK, take deep breaths. I don’t mean it isn’t New Year’s Day because they changed the calendar 300 years ago, so January 1 is really November 19 or whatever it would be — but that shouldn’t be overlooked. I also don’t mean it isn’t New Year’s Day because the whole business of dates is entirely made up — although that shouldn’t be ignored, either. What I mean is: the year really, actually starts in September. Sit down if you need to. Think back to when you were a kid. (If you are a kid, think back to your first day at school). The school year starts in September. Am I right or am I right? For all those years that you attended school or college, i.e. the majority of your life if you’re under 30, the year began in September. The Bermuda parliamentary year starts late in the calendar year. For Jewish people, the year starts in September or thereabouts, and they’re soon to celebrate the year 5773. The start of the Muslim year varies. The Chinese New Year ditto. Buddhist countries often have different start dates for each year. January 1 is a fiction some of us choose to believe; why not believe something else? Now think about how a year works. If you go with that outdated January 1 stuff, it starts cold, heats up, cools down and ends where it started, frozen. That’s depressing. But if the year were to start in September, it would kick off warm, become colder and let us get that out of the way, then warm up again, become hot and end with a blissful cooling down into warmth. Better, right? A year that ends in December starts and ends on a downbeat. A year starting in September ends with your summer vacation. Which is better? Huh? Huh? The soccer season starts in September. So do the rugby, American football and any number of other sporting seasons. Crops are harvested in September. Most people get their first jobs in September, because everyone’s on vacation in July and August. Most people are happier in September than they are in January. (I made that up, but it sounds right-ish.) What acts against this — OK, I’ll say it — brilliant notion of starting the year in September? Only one thing: the name we give what is currently the third season. Fall, a word we associate with collapse. Autumn, a word that suggests wistfulness or a sense of what has been lost. “In the autumn of his years”, we might say of someone in his 60s. It wouldn’t take much to change that. All that September needs is better PR.
FINALLY, A BEACH ’N BOAT ’N FISH ’N GOLF ’N PARTY DARK ’N STORMY. ®
The genuine cocktail, perfectly made, now available in sleek, 250ml cans. (And the cans are available island-wide, including Bermuda Duty Free.) Cheers.

ART IN THE COMMUNITY Bermuda National Gallery Bermuda National Gallery, 1st Floor, City Hall & Arts Centre, 17 Church Street, City of Hamilton, Gallery Hours: Monday to Friday, 10am - 4pm, Saturday 10am - 2pm The Bermuda Biennial Exhibition The Bermuda Biennial is a platform for the contemporary art scene in Bermuda. Started in 1994, the exhibition continues to represent the vitality and creativity of local artists. The Bermuda Biennial provides an opportunity for local artists to engage in an internationally juried process, which strives to represent the excellence of Bermuda’s contemporary art scene. Since 1998, Bacardi Limited has generously been the Signature Sponsor and 2012 marks the 10th Anniversary of this important event. Impressions of Bermuda: The David L. White Gift to the Bermuda National Gallery This exhibition celebrates the recent gift of 51 paintings, a most significant contribution to the Bermuda Collection, representing the vision of David L. White, OBE, Chairman Emeritus, Trustee and ambassador for the arts. With a discerning eye, he acquired a comprehensive collection that includes works by important American impressionist artists who visited and painted Bermuda. On display are 46 of the total 77 works of art donated by Mr. White since the museum opened in 1992: “Throughout the last twenty-five years of collecting, I have never thought of these works as belonging to me. I have always known that at some time they would have to be available to all Bermudians.” Thursday Tours @ 10:30am Weekly tours of the BNG take place each Thursday at 10:30 am and admission is FREE. A team of docents (gallery tour guides) are professionally trained for each exhibition at the BNG. Tours on other days or for special groups may be prearranged.

In June 1980, John Lennon sailed to Bermuda on a yacht for an extended vacation. The experience sparked his musical genius and within just six weeks he wrote and completed 25 songs, breaking a 5-year writer’s block. The resulting comeback album was entitled ‘Double Fantasy’, named for a flower he had seen in the Bermuda Botanical Gardens. Friday, September 21: Bermuda artists and artists from around the world will honour John Lennon with a tribute concert held in the Botanical Gardens Show Ring. The evening will also include the release of the ‘Bermuda John Lennon Tribute’ CD and the launch of the book, ‘Bermuda Fantasy – John Lennon’s Island Story’. Continued on page 20

The Facelift of the Future By Willi Lawrence, Dermatology & Skin Care Center
Thermage... This FDA approved procedure is now one of the most popular anti aging treatments being used today. This is accomplished by using controlled radio frequency energy to tighten tissue and increase Collagen production. With aging, Collagen production slows so skin becomes loose and saggy causing wrinkles and fine lines to develop. Unlike lasers Thermage works on all skin types so patients with darker skin can be treated. Also known as the Thermalift procedure, patients no longer need to take time off in order to define their jaw line, lift their eyebrows, tighten their neck and reduce wrinkles around their cheeks and mouth. We are the only skin care clinic that offers this physician- only treatment in Bermuda performed by a registered nurse. The machine is only purchased through a plastic surgeon or dermatologist office. We are proud to introduce the latest treatment tips that are larger, faster and more effective than before. The treatment session can range from 30 to 90 minutes depending on the site being treated. Thermage for men is becoming the trend for basically the same reasons that women are attracted to Thermage. There is no downtime and the results are very natural. In todays job market there is so much competition especially for high level professionals that a youthful look is becoming as important to men as it is for women. As the word gets out we will see more men taking advantage of this skin tightening opportunity. Thermage is the only non-invasive procedure that can lift sagging eyebrows, increase prominence of the cheekbones, re-define the jaw line and improve appearance of saggy necks in a single session that can last for years. No surgery, no needles, no downtime! Call Ms. Lawrence for a free consultation to see if you are a candidate 441 295 9963.

Bermuda National Gallery’s 2012
Bacardi Limited Exhibition of Contemporary Bermuda Art The Bermuda National Gallery is pleased to invite you to the 2012 Bacardi Limited Biennial Exhibition of Contemporary Bermuda Art. In its 10th year, this important exhibition continues to highlight just how active art is in Bermuda. Bermudian artists and residing foreign nationals are invited to submit up to five pieces of art (created within the last two years and previously not exhibited on Island) to be juried by guest curators. Juried by Naomi Beckwith, curator from the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, and Trinidadian artist, curator and writer Christopher Cozier, this exhibition features 20 artists, working in diverse medium– from the more traditional forms of painting, wood cut prints, and photography, to more challenging conceptual works. Viewers may be shocked on entry to the museum where they are met with a floating cedar tree that has been reconstructed with nuts, bolts, staples, screws and glue, suspended from the rafters, penetrating through the ceiling. Here, Antoine Hunt’s “Deconstruction Forest” makes a bold comment on environmental destruction while challenging natural sensitivities to the protection of Bermuda’s prized (and legally protected) cedar tree. Equally political, Dany Pen explores the notion of erasing the past in “Erasures”, a series of short films that document her attempt to erase the identities of leaders of the Khmer Rouge who enacted genocide in Cambodia in the 1970s. This compelling, emotional piece is made most poignant by the sounds of the artist exorcising her ire on the portraits of Pol Pot and other tyrants. Exploring identity in an altogether different manner, Louisa Bermingham Flannery has an active studio space within the museum in order for her to develop her ongoing portfolio of the “Hairy Bear, Scary Bear” series. On display is her think-tank of ideas, from sources of inspiration to drawings in draft form, to more realized final pieces, all of which express the often humorous journey of an animated character whose body is a ball of the artist’s hair. Flannery works in her studio space each week thus providing a unique encounter for museum visitors. Each Thursday at 10:30 am the museum offers a free tour of the exhibitions. Guests may find this helpful in gaining access to some of the more challenging works featured in the 2012 Bacardi Limited Biennial of Contemporary Bermuda Art. Also on display in the museum is the David L. White Gift to the Bermuda National Gallery, featuring 46 works, many by visiting American Impressionist painters in the early 20th century. This delightful exhibition reflects the Island’s natural beauty as portrayed by artists Reynolds Beale, William Chadwick and Clark G. Vorheees, to name a few. Complimentary admission. Tours each Thursday at 10:30 am. Call ahead to confirm: 441-295-9428. See www.bng.bm for more details.

Dany Pen Artist
In her current exhibit at the Bermuda National Gallery, Dany Pen explores the use of digital media, photography and organic materials as she focuses on how memory and history are preserved, salvaged and revived through the displacement of individuals and groups. What is your earliest memory of art and realization that you were or were to become an artist? I was just 8 years old when I got my first manual 35mm canon film camera. I remember it being on a very cold winter day. I went out to Toronto’s Don Valley with my camera, some black and white film and just starting shooting in every setting on the camera. I remember it being so cold that day that the camera even froze a few times. I took pictures of everything I saw that day from the frozen pond, icicles suspended from trees to my own show tracks printed in the snow, but all in black and white film though. It is a special memory that has been with me ever since. Was your development as an artist a part of your everyday life growing up? I attended a very academic based school in Toronto, Jarvis Collegiate. Because there wasn’t a strong art focus, I developed my artistic skills and self-exploration as an artist outside school on my own time. I was only 8 when I first discovered an artist-run-studio in my Regent Park community. A few artists created and ran the space; they were very open to having the community come through so a lot of kids including myself would visit the studio every day after school. I spent much of my time there growing up. Today the studio has moved locations and is called the Art Heart Community Art Centre. www.artheart.ca Your current exhibit at the BNG is very sensitive. Is this a common trait in all of your work and have you heard others describe it this way? During my first solo show in Toronto at ‘Board of Directors’ in 2010, I first became aware of how sensitive viewers were to my work. I had always been aware that I was sensitive to my own art explorations because I have a personal connection to what I focus on but at this show I actually witnessed people’s reactions as I stood in a corner overhearing them
In the Arts 31
Dany infront of her display at BNG. express how overwhelmed emotionally they were just by viewing the images and that’s how I began to understand that my work had an effect that went beyond just myself as the artist. Can you tell us about any other special exhibitions that you have participated in? Board of Directors was particularly exciting because it is one of the top 10 galleries in Toronto and I was invited there to do my first solo show by Gallery Director Katharine Mulherin. Here in Bermuda I am a part of an Arts Collective called BARU “Bermuda Artists Rise Up” www.barucollective. wordpress.com. With the Collective last year I participated in the M.A.D exhibit “Males Academically Disengaged” at the Bermuda College. It was followed by a lecture after that discussing social issues at play currently on the island affecting why young Bermudian males lack to further their education even with resources and means available. There was another very successful art show that I participated in just last year displayed at the B.S.O.A (Bermuda Society of Arts), I worked with about 40 kids ages 2 - 4, the title of the piece was called “Colour Of My Skin”. I gave each child a puzzle piece and without predisposing them to colours I just asked them to look at their arm and declare the colour of their skin. I gave them the paint color that they declared which they then painted their puzzle piece with. At the end of it, I put all of the pieces together in a mosaic and displayed in a large mural showed what the children saw as the “colour of their skin”. The puzzle pieces ranged from shades of pinks to peach, shades of brown, but only a very small number of children declared themselves just black or white. So my question with this exhibition was how do Continued on page 32

In the Arts the majority of 2 - 4 year olds see shades of colour in Bermuda’s people and a large number of our adults can only see black and white. Can you tell us about the next big project? The main piece I am working on now goes back to my roots in Regent Park in Toronto. Over the span of the last decade the community is undergoing regentrification by the Government and for the last 6 or 7 years I have been recording testimonials from Regent Parkers and how they are feeling about being evicted, their homes being torn down and their communities being eradicated. All testimonials from phase one through phase three focus on what the people are witnessing, undergoing and experiencing. I look at different treatments, from what was promised by the government and is now being taken away from them. In phase one, a lot of people express excitement about all of the promises that the community would become, a better place and a safer place. By the time you reach phase three you listen to all of the broken promises and hear that some are living on the streets or displaced in another ghetto. You listen to the stories and what has happened over the span of time. Regent Park is home to me, I have seen a lot of rights and wrongs (more wrongs than rights) racial discrimination, gangs, violence, all of these things are compressed in this community made up of people many of whom have been forced into displacement. Immigrants, refugees, lack of education, poverty, etc. I have a voice and I can be a voice for many others who can’t express themselves in the public arena, for me art is my public arena.

IN & ON THE WATER
AXIS ADRENALINE PROJECTS
Q & A with John Martin
What inspired you to start AXIS Adrenaline Projects? Being on the water in the charter industry is something I have loved to do and have been a part of for well over 10 years. After taking a break for a couple of years while raising twins, Bryson and Savannah, I decided to start up a company that puts the “sports” back in “watersports”. I figured it was my best opportunity to get back out there.. My wife, Jenna, instilled into me that if you genuinely love what you do, you can’t fail. My passion for the sports, love of this magical island, friends and my family have inspired me to take those risks and make AXIS Adrenaline Projects happen. How long did it take for your dream to become a reality? The reality is, I have wanted to do this since I was eighteen years old. So if you add it up... Too long, haha. I’ve been riding since 1997 and had four epic seasons instructing snowboarding in Whistler, B.C. Not gonna lie, I didn’t get a lot of support at the beginning. It took about two years to get everything dialed in for start up. People had tried it before, people said it didn’t work. Fuel isn’t getting cheaper and boats never are... In retrospect, I genuinely appreciate all the critics. It prepped me for what was to come. I knew what I wanted to provide and learned what i was up against... Before I even began. In June of this year you lost your first boat to a freak storm. Please tell us about that and how you stayed afloat. Yah yah yah, that was rough. June 17th (fathers day), We had tropical storm ‘CHRIS’ suddenly develop over Bermuda without warning. It was crazy. It was like the wind came out of nowhere. The boat sank... Engine/electricals shot. For a split second I though it was the end of the dream. But within 2 weeks, I had got my hands on another boat locally... A great boat. PepperCorn Marine and Brian Anfossi were incredible during the salvage and sorting out the new craft. Freisenbruch-Meyer was there when I needed them. SignWorx was able to design and wrap the entire new boat with AXIS ADRENALINE PROJECTS decals in 2 days. It was amazing how many people stepped up to the wicket. I couldn’t have done it without them. We ended up calling the new boat “HIGHWATER”... for that’s what took the first boat, as well as the wake this one throws behind it. Some of my clients didn’t even realize it was a different boat. The dream goes on...

What are your plans for AXIS in the future? I’ve got a five year plan and a ten year plan for AXIS ADRENALINE PROJECTS but after all that has gone down this season, right now I am focusing on what is most important... The youth of Bermuda. I never expected to see such a driven and able group of kids as I have seen so far this year. We have five year olds riding wake boards, proper riding. My twins are 3-1/2 and they’re up on wakeboards. I’m seeing other parents out on the water doing watersports with their kids now more than ever. It’s awesome. It’s not important wether they are out with me or behind their uncles boat. The point is that they are out there trying. Can you imagine the first Bermudian in the X-Games? How wicked would that be?!? We (Bermuda) used to be the Mecca for waterskiing and watersports... It will be that way again and AXIS ADRENALINE PROJECTS will be there.

Israel ChIkumbIrIke Indisputably, Israel is now the best living sculptor in Zimbabwe. He lives and works in a beautiful grand home in the Waterfalls suburb of Harare. His success has allowed him to also purchase a farm in his ancestral rural area, where he spends time working the land. Something at the heart of the Shona psyche. When you see Israel’s work, there is no doubt that you are experiencing the art of a true master. What he creates does not just fill a volume, but inhabits the space with life and vitality. He thinks in 360°. Every piece works from every angle, the essence of a great sculpture. His surfaces and textures are exquisitely finished; every detail is nurtured and carefully considered to enhance the whole. It is said that stone sculptors would make great politicians, as their art is the art of compromise. They envision the finished work in the raw chunk of hard stone. The stone pushes back. It becomes a participant in the process, skill tames the stone; but it’s stone, so the unexpected happens. The sculptor is dealing with a material that is hundreds of millions of years old. The metamorphic Zimbabwean stones are the result of ancient oceans crushed between colliding continental plates at the dawn of Earth’s formation. In purities, fissures, varying hardnesses and the odd mistaken blow with a hammer and chisel mean that the sculptor has to adapt, change and compromise as the work evolves.

BERMUDA’S HISTORY UnITED STATES nAvAl OpERATInG BASE National Museum of Bermuda BERMUDA, 1941–1995 On 7 April 1941, by prior agreement, United States Army and Naval Forces “invaded” Bermuda, following the Declaration of War between Great Britain and Germany two years prior on 3 September 1939. Because of its global commitments, Britain did not have enough men and equipment to protect all of its overseas territories, so the defence of Bermuda was largely handed to the Americans, who had previously in late August 1939 obtained a lease to two islands in the Great Sound for a naval base. Having signed such a lease before the Declaration of War, the United States could come to Bermuda and erect such a base, without being declared a belligerent by Nazi Germany. The ship, American Legion, arrived in early April 1941 with guns for the coastal defence (a dozen in all) of Bermuda and men and machinery to establish an army base, later “Kindley Field” at the east end of the island and a Naval Operating Base (NOB) in Southampton Parish in the west. Those base continued in operation until 1995 and made significant contributions to the Second World War and to the following, not-so-hot “Cold War”. The photograph shows the NOB in 1943, shortly after its completion and (inset) are a few PBY “Flying Boats” that patrolled off Bermuda during the Second World War, looking primarily for German submarines, or “U-Boats”. The third such submarine sunk by American Forces in the War was dispatched to oblivion by one of the Flying Boats out of NOB Bermuda. The Naval Operating Base was closed in 1995, but is now destined to be used as a major hotel and tourism site: it is hoped that some of the military and architectural heritage of the area might be preserved in the new usage of those lands in Southampton Parish.

Spying on Bermuda in the early 1840s PASSPORT DESCRIPTION: Age 32 Years; Stature 5 Feet 7 Inches; Forehead full round; Eyes blue; ordinary; Mouth large; Chin ordinary; Hair light sandy; Complexion light; Face oval. —Signature of the Bearer Albert Fitz In the centuries before fingerprint scanners and passport readers, immigration officials had to assess visitors on the description of passports. For Albert Fitz, one of several secret agents, or spies, sent to Bermuda in the 1840s, the officer at St. George’s, the port of entry, would know that a man with a “full round” forehead, an ordinary nose and chin and a light oval face set with blue eyes, could not possibly be a spy. Perhaps the official was trained in “phrenology”, a pseudoscience that suggested that the criminal nature of a person could be determined by bumps on the head, by looking at the topography, or Photographic portrait of Albert and landscape, of the skull. Eliza Fitz on their wedding day. Having a “large” or big mouth would presumably disqualify one from being a spy, but that is exactly what Albert Fitz was on his entry into Bermuda in late 1841. As Bermuda would be a central factor in any conflict between the USA and Britain, the authorities in Washington had sent at least three spies (that we know of!) to Bermuda in the 1840s. The first was Secret Agent Albert Fitz, followed by Captain Minor Knowlton and Lieutenant Frederick Prime. Capt. Knowlton found the ten thousand Bermudians to be “universally loyal”. In his view, “the blacks strongly prefer the English government to our own, and for

reasons too obvious to mention. The whites because of the great artificial importance given to the colony by the government and the great expenditures of money made in it in the attempt to make it the great military and naval depot for this part of the world.” Lieut. Prime was so excited by his visit that he drafted an invasion plan for Bermuda from his later outpost of Fort Alcatraz in California. New information has come to hand on Albert Fitz from marine Passport or exit visa from Bermuda for the Turks Islands for Secret Agent Fitz. artist John Hutchinson, a greatgreat-grandson. From a passport issued by Governor Reid on 29 January 1842, we can surmise that Fitz had completed his spying on the Bermuda fortifications and was on his way to the “Turks Islands” on the schooner Elizabeth & Esther, but his real destination was the Bahamas, where he checked out Forts Montagu, Charlotte and Fincastle. By May 1842, he was at Barbados, following observation of military works at Jamaica. By the time of the Bermuda and West Indies tour, Albert Fitz had married Eliza and they had seven children, one of whom became the head of the Harvard Medical School and another made a fortune in the East Indies trade. Fitz was born in 1809, the year construction started at the Bermuda dockyard, and died as US Consul at Haiti in 1852. Of the Bahamas, Fitz wrote that the disposition and expectations of the inhabitants resemble those of the Bermudians, with the exception of their not being so jealous of strangers, nor so belligerent towards Americans. Albert Fitz’s plans of Bermuda’s major forts, Perhaps since then Bermudians have recorded in late 1841. learned that belligerence towards any foreigners, even Americans or spies, is the death knell of the tourism trade, Bermuda’s economic staple.

DO YOU KNOW…

…that per mile, the Bermuda Railway was the most expensive railway ever built? – Part 1 Getting about Bermuda has always been somewhat of a problem, due mainly to the extremely elongated geography of the many coral islands. With public transportation limited to a few ferries plying their trade between the islands, and horse-drawn carriages providing a rather uncomfortable and unreliable service along the narrow and twisting roads, Bermuda’s land transportation problems were the cause of many debates during the late 19th century. In 1875, keeping the islands’ defences and other military considerations in mind, the Governor, Major General John Henry Lefroy, asked London to provide a light railway for Bermuda. This project was eventually abandoned because the causeway was considered too narrow and flimsy to accommodate the tracks. By 1904 the Bermuda Electric Light, Power and Traction Company, Limited was formed and granted a concession to not only provide electric power, but also a transportation system. At the same time a number of buses appeared on the colony’s roads and the company decided to concentrate their efforts on light and power services. The buses, meanwhile, operating whatever route they wished, without timetables and unregulated by Government, caused much resentment amongst both Bermudians and tourists. Several petitions were soon presented to the Legislature, urging the prohibition of all automobiles. One of these petitions, presented by 112 American guests of the Princess and Hamilton Hotels, drafted by Woodrow Wilson and signed by Mark Twain, undoubtedly carried much weight. Two months later, the 1908 Motor Car Act temporarily ended the career of the automobile, and Bermudians and tourists alike had to again rely on horse carriages, bicycles, and their own feet for transportation.
Do You Know 45 Against the backdrop of banned buses and the introduction of electricity, the Bermuda Trolley Company made its appearance in 1910. Proposing an electrified tramway system that would link Hamilton to both St. George’s and Ireland Island, the scheme was devised by Canadian railway mogul Sir William Mackenzie. At a cost of £200,000, the system was to basically follow the existing roads, which were to be widened, thereby minimizing the impact on land holdings. Opposition to the proposed trolley system was swift. Arguing that the technology was inappropriate, spoiling the quiet life which drew tourists to the island; and above all against the “audacity” of a company organized in Quebec calling itself a Bermuda company, the opponents soon defeated the proposal. In 1912, a Government-sponsored report on the inland transportation problems recommended that a railway, built along its own right-of-way, would “best serve the demand for rapid and frequent communication between the extremities of the island.” No action followed this report until 1924, when a proposal was finally made to build such a railway. By then there were some 1,000 carriages and 7,000 bicycles on Bermuda’s roads. The population was about 32,000. Opponents of the scheme promptly submitted a proposal to form a motor bus system and the debate centered around the relative merits of both schemes. Although a variety of vehicles such as ambulances, fire engines, tractors, and mobile stone crushers were allowed on Bermuda’s roads, various petitions for motor cars were consistently refused - in 1928 a petition from doctors, in 1929 a petition from the Post Office to import four mail vans, and in 1931 a petition from the Governor to import and use an automobile. The petition to build a railway was finally approved, and Bermuda Traction Limited was formed. After untold delays in purchasing land for right-of-ways, construction commenced in 1926. Difficulties were immediately encountered because of the rolling contour of Bermuda, and the many road and water crossings that had to be spanned. In all, some 10% of the track was spanned with 22 steel bridges and 34 timber trestles. The 22.5 miles of track formed a single line, divided into 15 sections, with 14 two-lane loop stations allowing “up trains” to pass “down trains,” and 44 scheduled stops. The route of the Bermuda Railway is indicated in red on this Railway Map of the early 1930s. The railway’s primary rolling stock consisted of 6 Motor Coaches, 2 Motor Freight Locomotives, 2 Double Motor Truck Locomotives, 6 1st Class ‘Pullman’ Chair Cars, 6 Covered Passenger Cars and 2 Trailer Box Cars.

ThE REdaN Modern architects often repeat themselves, yet Charles Blair MacDonald, Seth Raynor and Charles Banks repeated themselves continually. Raynor and Banks’ mentor, Charles Blair Macdonald, purposely replicated famous holes from cherished British layouts. They did not build pure replicas, such as we find today at novelty courses, instead they were seizing on a concept and adapting it to the varying conditions and topographies of their sites.
Redan While the word itself was coined to describe the 15th at North Berwick, Redan has come to mean a specific manner of green complex. Macdonald described it best: “Take a narrow tableland, tilt it a little from right to left, dig a deep bunker on the front side, approach it diagonally and you have a Redan.” Raynor and Macdonald generally outfitted their Redans with an exaggerated “kick-back” slope in the approach and front section of the green. Part of the fun of a Redan is watching the ball kick onto the green and roll. You can try to fly a ball onto a Redan green, but they are usually quite shallow, framed by penal bunkers front and back. And because they can have a front-to-rear slope of up to five feet, best of luck playing dart-board golf on a Redan. The 17th at Mid is a wonderful example of the Redan. It’s important to remember a couple of things about this MacDonald standard: Classic Redans play right to left—but they can also be oriented left to right. In those cases Tucker’s Points 11th is an example of a reverse Redan adaptations. Second, vintage Redans were in the range of 190 yards (a strong par 3 in the early days of golf) and work best as long holes where the greens receive lengthy approaches. The lower trajectory of such shots means the ball rolls more readily when it hits the ground and therefore responds to the Redan’s kick-back grading that is a key element to these golf holes. In Bermuda we are very lucky to actually have two wonderful examples of this type of course in Mid Ocean and Tucker’s Point. (Castle Harbour as it was in those days, is Charles Banks last course he built in 1932!) Repetition, in the right hands, can be a beautiful thing!

Golf Accross the Island
Director of Golf FAIRMONT SOUTHAMPTON Golf Club By Simona Terceira
Winner of Golf Digest’s Best Places to Play Golf, Fairmont Southampton Golf Course features 18 par-three holes, most with stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean. Let’s meet the pro... How long have you been golfing and what got you started? I have been golfing for 40 years. I was 7 years old when my father introduced me to golf at Belmont Golf Club with a pro that was very keen on junior golf - Alex Crofton. The golf course was close to home and I found it pretty easy so I took to it. I fell in love with the game and Alex continued to teach me. I progressed very rapidly through Bermuda Junior Golf. I didn’t realize it was going to set me up with a career in golf but at that time it was a fun game that offered great opportunities to travel. When did you join fairmont Southampton golf course? When I was 15 years old I left Bermuda and headed to the U.S. to pursue my golf career in highschool and then college. I turned professional after representing Bermuda at many international golf tournaments. I decided to turn professional in Europe and I’ve spent 15 years travelling the world playing golf and meeting some fantastic people. I joined Fairmont Southampton Golf Club almost 3 years ago. It was a wonderful opportunity for me to come back to Bermuda. Golf jobs in Bermuda are very rare so when I had the opportunity to come home and do what I love to do I was very happy. Do you think the golf ball makes a big difference and what type of ball do you use? The golf ball has changed a lot over 20 year. I started playing with the Titles golf ball when I was a junior and I haven’t stop playing with it yet. I can honestly say I’ve been playing with the same kind of golf ball for 25 years. It’s a trust thing. If you get a great result with a certain ball just go with it. Even the number on the golf ball counts, I only use no.1. Golfers are very superstitious people. There are some great stories about professional golfers that make good reading about how they do things. For example Tiger wears a red shirt the final day of every tournament. He will never change this. We are very psychoanalytical people. What type of clubs do you use? I use Taylor Made. I have had a great deal of success playing with these clubs for the last 5 years. They work and keeping that superstation alive until the day that they will stop behaving I probably won’t change them for quite a while. If someone is just getting into golf, would you suggest buying the best clubs or paying for a lesson? The golf game has changed in the last 15 years. The game is a lot easier to enter now and the industry has become very aware that we need more people to play the game. Here at Fairmont Southampton Golf Club we take beginners and we start them up with very basic equipment until they fall in love with the game. It’s a gradual building cycle. Don’t invest a lot of money in the game till you know that you are in love with the game. Golf has to be a passion. How does someone go about choosing golf clubs? What do you look for in clubs? Every golfer regardless of level after they get to the stage where they are committed to the game should get fitted for golf clubs and they should test out many. As adults our body doesn’t change a lot. Our arms don’t get any longer so I encourage everybody that buys a set of clubs to make sure they get fitted properly for golf clubs. If you will never ware something that doesn’t fit you why will you play with some clubs that don’t fit? Everybody that is going to invest some money in the golf equipment should see a certified professional to get his or her clubs fit. What else would you like people to know about what you do? Fairmont Southampton golf club is ranked no 5 in the world for short course par 3. One of the ideas that I had when I accepted this position was to create something special for golf in Bermuda. In 2009 we created the Bacardi National Par 3 Championship. We have now grown after 3 years to the Bacardi World Par 3 Championship. We are going to have players come to Bermuda from all over the world. The Bacardi world par 3 Championship is on March 22 - 24, 2013.

FRAGRANCE of the month Rebelle By Rihanna Sassy or sweet, Rebelle is a delightful enticement bringing to mind not only the warmth of the Caribbean sun, reflecting Barbados-born Rihanna’s roots, but also the exhilarating whirl of her present-day city life. Caroline Sabas and Marypierre Julien, the internationally renowned perfumers behind Reb’l Fleur, have teamed up once again to capture Rihanna’s essence, this time with a lush, sensual Gourmand Chypre. Luscious strawberries and ripe purple plums are enlivened with a jolt of ginger to create a tantalizing harmony at the top. Then the heart opens, passionate with the heat of exotic allure, intriguing body and soul with notes of tropical splendor: cacao absolute, vanilla orchid and heliotrope. Defiantly sexy, the base notes beguile. Dark and mysterious, they echo like the reggae hook in a Rihanna tune: Rich patchouli finds rhythm with the essence of rare coffee beans, creamy musk merges with the aphrodisiac effect of amber...unforgettable becomes an understatement. Experience the newest fragrance from Rihanna with the Rebelle 3.4 oz Eau de Parfum Spray. Available at Gibbons Company, Brown & Co. and A.S. Cooper A.S.

Telephone 441 238-4842 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. NATIONAL MUSEUM OF BERMUDA 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. Its popularity has increased even more with the recent restoration and opening of Commissioner’s House. Elsewhere on the complex, exhibits chronicle both Bermuda’s association with the Royal Navy and its own interesting maritime history. In addition to a collection of Bermuda-made boats, there are relics from the Sea Venture, maps, the famous Tucker Treasure—collected from the sixteenth-century Spanish galleon the San Pedro—and many more artifacts. Open Monday to Sunday 9:30am-4:00pm (last admission 4pm). Adults $10, seniors $8, children under 13 FREE. For further information telephone 441 234-1333.

An experimental building in several regards, Commissioner’s House may have been the first domestic project anywhere to use cast iron to support its floors and roof. Rescued from near dereliction through a protracted, award-winning restoration, the building—one of the most important on the island—now houses exhibits on slavery, history of tourism, Bermuda’s connections with the West Indies and the Azores and Bermuda’s military and seafaring history. Open during regular Museum hours.

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 rowed ashore to Gates Bay, located at the eastern end of St. George’s. ST. GEORGE’S VISITOR INFORMATION CENTRE Town of St. George The St. George’s Visitor Information Centre (VIC) conveniently located at 7 King’s Square, St. George’s.

THE GLOBE HOTEL Globe Hotel, King’s Square Across the street from St. Peter’s Church, this distinctive dwelling was built in 1700 by Governor Samuel Day. 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. - Sat. 10am-4pm. Admission $5.students $2. 297-1423. ST. PETER’S, Their Majesties Chappell 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 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. Open Mon. - Sat. 10am-4pm. 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. Outisde viewing only. 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 and has been home to the St. George’s Historical Society since 1920. Open Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs, Sat. Adults $5, Children under 12 $2 BERMUDIAN HERITAGE Museum Samaritan’s Lodge, Intersection of York and Water Streets St. George’s newest museum was formed in 1994 to preserve and document the history of black culture and achievement in Bermuda. Displays include a fascinating assortment of memorabilia relating to the many areas in which blacks have made a contribution since first arriving on the island in 1616: shipbuilding, piloting, construction, nursing, music, sports and politics, to name a few. Open Tues-Sat 10am-3pm. Admission $4. 297-4126. CORPORATION OF ST. GEORGE Town of St. George Town Hall, the handsome building commanding King’s Square and bearing the town crest was begun in 1802, a few years after the Corporation of St. George’s was founded in 1797. The State House, located up a gentle elevation behind Town Hall, is one of the island’s oldest, most historically important buildings. Erected around 1620 by Governor Nathaniel Butler, the State House is open to the public 10am-4pm on Wednesdays only. (10 - 2 May 1 - Oct 31) 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. Outside viewing only. The structure is unsafe – please heed the warning signs. 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 & MUSEUM 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. The present, completely restored structure, dates from the mid-nineteenth century and is home to fascinating exhibits including military guns and weapons. 75% of the fort is wheelchair accessible. Open Mon-Fri 10:00am-4:00pm. Continued on page 76

of the month TRENT MAYHEW CHEF dE CuisiNE The Fairmont Hamilton princess Chef Trent Mayhew comes to us from England, and has been in the restaurant business for more than 31 years. While he was studying at Aylesbury College in Buckinghamshire, he was working part time as a Chef in pubs and small restaurants. His first ‘real job’ as a professional Chef was with De Vere Hotels in Buckinghamshire. He has also worked for Bellhouse Hotel, Continental Hotel, and Dorchester Hotel, each located in London. Chef Mayhew also worked with Gordon Ramsay at the Mayfair InterContinental in London for approximately one year. Chef Mayhew came to Bermuda in 1989 and his first job was as Chef de Partie at The Fairmont Southampton Princess. He is currently the Chef de Cuisine at The Fairmont Hamilton Princess where he runs Harley’s Restaurant & Harbour Terrace. HOW WOuld yOu dEsCRibE yOuR sTylE OF COOkiNg?

One day in 2004 I was getting the kitchen ready for a busy evening when around 5:00pm I received a call that we had to close the restaurant for a special guest. Well that special guest was Oprah Winfrey. She was on her way back from Africa and because she was hungry the pilot had to land the plane at the closest airport. Bermuda was the nearest airport so they decided to have dinner at The Fairmont Hamilton Princess. I closed the

restaurant for 3 hours just for her. After she left we reopened the restaurant for our guests. I am pleased to say that she enjoyed the food here.

Bonefish Bar & Grill
Patio, Patio, Patio Bonefish Bar & Grill, Royal Naval Dockyard By Candice & Simona With 3 different patios including a Gosling’s patio bar under the stars, an intimate indoor dining room and a main bar, Bonefish is a must stop if your in Dockyard and an ultimate destination for lunch, dinner or even just casual drinks on a warm September day or eve. Ideal for the family or a romantic rendezvous, Bonefish offers an extensive menu catering to land, sea & pasta lovers. Bonefish’s owner Livio Ferigo - Italian of course, offers some of the best pasta dishes on the island!!! The very creative and mouth watering drink menu features cocktails named after staff, a great wine list and ice cold beer! I almost forgot dessert, will have to let you explore that selection for yourself. Oh my. Bonefish is located directly across from the Ferry terminal and has a birds eye view of the beautiful Cruise Ship port. At night with the boats lit up, it is just a spectacular setting. Upon arrival we were surprised to see that a wedding party was set up in the sheltered patio that sits adjacent to the main under the sky patio. With the Dockyard boardwalk on one side and a wedding party on the other we really found our selves in the mood to take it all in and order a few glasses of wine to start. The music from the wedding was awesome and when the wedding finished and the guests headed back to their cruise ship which was docked minutes from Bonefish, the Salsa Mania DJ moved in and started setting up for an evening of Salsafied entertainment! We started with a delicious ‘Olive Tapenade served with toasted and sliced baguette’. Next came a sample platter, a popular feature in the appetizer section of the menu, be sure to check it out because it is such a great idea and offers you and your party a small variety of tantalizing tasters.
‘Oysters, Smoked Salmon with Capers and Onions upon toasted and sliced baguette’, Grilled Beef with a delicious special sauce and diced tomatoes upon toasted and sliced baguette, ‘Prosciutto and Mango wrapped around sliced melon’ and a little Italian touch, fresh sliced Italian Salami. Next we were served another platter but this one was different, a selection of pastas! ‘Lobster Ravioli with zucchini in a pink sauce, ‘Saffron Risotto with Italian Sausage’ and last we tried ‘Sicilian Style Penne’ in a spicy tomato sauce! Next on our tasting palate the main course, ‘Bonefish Style Fish’, ‘Breaded Lamb Chop served dipped in a delicious mint sauce’, ‘Jumbo Shrimp served hot shell on’. We learned that leaving the shell on really preserves the flavor and the shrimp shell was easy to peel away keeping the shrimp itself extra

juicy and bursting with flavor down to the last bite. All served along side mashed potatoes and fresh vegetables including broccoli and green beans. Absolutely delicious and we were loving the variety. For dessert we tried the ‘Tiramisu’ and the ‘Crème Brule’. Simply divine! The most amazing thing happened after dinner, a girl from Salsa Mania had walked around to all of the dinner guests inviting people to join her on the dance floor. There were aprox 30 guests who had gathered at the front of the patio and the music started to really kick in. Everyone watched and cheered on as the 30 guests learned the basic steps of Salsa. It was really fun. Later on in the evening they conducted a female dance off and then a male dance off. It was quite the entertainment and everyone was having a blast. The patio was packed with visitors and locals! It was a site to see. Boner Bar was absolutely slammed with onlookers enjoying an mid evening drink and beyond the fence people traveling back from Destination Dockyard stopped to watch. There must have been about 200 + people out there on that Monday evening in Dockyard! If you are a visitor on vacation or a local resident in need of a mini one, take the ferry to Dockyard and visit Bonefish Bar and Grill. You are bound to have a great time whether you are stopping by for lunch, afternoon drinks at the Boner Bar or dinner on one of the 3 fabulous patios in the evening. If it is a clear night, be sure to sit on the main patio under the stars. Check out Livio’s Cookbook while you are visiting, ‘Amore Bermuda, the Passion for Italian Cooking’. It is packed with beautiful photography featuring great recipes sure to impress anyone you have by for dinner. The book also features Livio’s journey through life and the special people who have touched him along the way. Meet a cheese maker from Italy, his beautiful Mother shares her secret to making homemade pasta, his precious family, a few local Bermudian farmers, fisherman and more. It is a must have in any house hold and makes a beautiful gift from Bermuda. Zardetto Prosecco Suggested by April Gosling Naude “Zardetto Prosecco is a blend of 95% Prosecco and 5% Chardonnay. Crystal clear with a hearty white foam and fine perlage. Fresh fragrant aromas and a delicately soft and harmonious taste are the hallmarks of this quintessential aperitif wine. The aromas of ripe yellow peaches, flowers, spices and minerals add complexity. The finish is long, generous and nicely balanced.”

Shake It Up

By Simona Terceira
An evening spent at Swizzle Inn Baileys Bay or Swizzle Inn South Shore will leave your belly euphoric with amazing food and your face glowing with satisfaction (and fantastic cocktails), That’s just the surface of the water, swim a little deeper and you’ll discover some of the best bartenders in Bermuda. With no qualms about getting people talking, dancing and smiling, their specialty is keeping customers endlessly entertained. Meet two of the Swizzle Inn bartenders, Julie Barnes and Ebony Sousa. Both Julie and Ebony started as a bartender at Swizzle Inn and they’ve been there ever since.
Julie BarneS SWIZZLE INN | Baileys Bay At what point did you know that you would work with cocktails and spirits for a living? I’ve actually wanted to become a teacher. Soon after I’ve got my degree in English I’ve realized that it’s not what I’ve really wanted to do. I worked for few months at Blackbeard’s Hideout but I’ve discovered that I wanted to be a bartender when I first start working at Swizzle Inn, 15 years ago. I love working here, I love tourists, I love the fact that every day is different.
What types of cocktails are popular at Swizzle Inn? Swizzle and Dark and Stormy are the 2 most popular cocktails here at Swizzle Inn. We serve swizzle by the glass, half jar or full jar to our customers. We serve swizzle on the rocks or frozen. We even do frozen Dark & Stormy. What are the best nights at Swizzle Inn Bailey’s Bay? Every night it’s a good night, however we have Trivia Night on Thursdays hosted by Mike Bishop and followed by Ray our entertainer. On Friday and Saturday night we do barbeque. We barbeque meat and fish and it comes with a side of salad and a starch.

eBony SouSa SWIZZLE INN | South Shore At what age did you start bartending? I start working as a boss girl at Swizzle Inn Bailey’s Bay when I was only 16 years old. I got promoted as a waitress and soon after my 18th birthday I was ‘thrown’ behind the bar because they were short on bartenders. My manager noticed that being behind the bar is the perfect fit for me so I‘ve been a bartender ever since.
What’s your favorite thing about bartending? Well first of all I just love the bar where I work. The bar is very spacious and allows my customers to have their meals at the bar if they want. Since I am working at Swizzle Inn South Shore I’ve made a lot of friends. Swizzle Inn South Shore is the perfect spot for tourists to come and meet locals. My bar is always busy and fun. What is your favorite drink, and why? My favorite drink is a Yellow Bird because when I am drinking it I feel like I am on the beach on vacation. A Yellow Bird will always bring the sunshine in the rain for me. What’s the best pick up line that you heard at your bar? One day a guy comes in the bar, has a drink and when he leaves he says to me “Maybe next time I will give you my number”. Now who did this guy think he is? Second day he comes back and gives me his number and…we’ve been together for 2 years now.

Log onto www.thisweek.bm and tell us how the evening turned out for a chance to win an Amore Bermuda Cookbook! Visiting the island? Try out the recipe when you return home but make sure to pick up any key ingredients that might only be available locally at Lindo’s. You are still qualified to win no matter where you cook from! This months recipes come from Livio Ferigo’s Amore Bermuda The Passion for Italian Cooking Cook Book, available across the island. Appetizer Main Dessert
Coconut Shrimp Bermuda Rockfish Livio’s Tiramisu
CoConut Shrimp | Gamberetti Al Cocco Serves 6 1 egg ½ cup all-purpose flour 2/3 cup beer 1½ tsp baking powder
¼ cup all-purpose flour 2 cups coconut flakes 24 jumbo shrimps 3 cups canola oil, for frying
1. In a medium bowl, combine the egg, ½ cup of flour, beer, and baking powder. In 2 separate bowls, place the ¼ cup flour and coconut flakes. 2. Hold the shrimp by the tail, dredge in flour, and shake off any excess flour. Then dip into the egg/beer batter, allowing any excess to drip off. Roll the shrimp in coconut, and place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. 3. Meanwhile, heat the oil to 350°F in a deep fryer. Remove the chilled shrimp from refrigerator and fry in batches. Cook the shrimp, turning over once, for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Using tongs, remove the shrimp from the oil and place on paper towels to drain the hot oil. Serve warm, accompanied by your favorite dipping sauce. Note from Livio! I like to serve coconut shrimp with a sweet chili sauce, or with a sweet and sour sauce. I also like to splash a little sweet balsamic reduction into either of these sauces. This dish can be served as an appetizer or as a main course with coconut rice. This is a very popular dish at Bone Fish Restaurant in the Royal Naval Dockyard. Blue Fish sweet riesling - suggested By april gosling naude “Blue Fish Sweet Riesling complements the flavor of shellfish, mussels, Asian-inspired cuisine, and mild cheeses. The wine is also perfect for sipping on its own while enjoying a warm summer night. Excellent with Livio’s Coconut Shrimp lightly dipped in sweet chili sauce”
BErmuDA roCKFiSh | Filetti Di Cernia Alla Bermudiana Serves 6 1 cup canola oil ½ cup all-purpose flour seasoned with salt and freshly ground black pepper 6 8-oz Bermuda rockfish fillets, boned and skinned (or any other white fish) ½ cup Gosling’s Black Seal rum 1 cup cooking cream
½ cup softened butter 1 cup sliced almonds 4 Bermuda bananas, ¼-in. slices Salt and freshly ground black pepper ½ cup chopped fresh parsley, for garnish
1. In a large skillet, heat the canola oil over medium to high heat. 2. Place the flour in a shallow plate, add the salt and pepper, and mix until combined.

104What’s Cooking Bermuda 104 3. Dredge the fish fillets in the flour mixture and sauté in the hot skillet until they are golden brown. 4. Drain the oil from the skillet and add the Gosling’s Black Seal rum. Flambé immediately, and cook for 20 seconds to burn off some of the alcohol. 5. Add the cream and half the butter, seasoning lightly with salt and pepper. Cook everything for approximately 5 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat and allow to rest. 6. In a separate pan, melt the remaining butter, and then add the almonds. Let the almonds sauté for a minute, then add the sliced bananas. Let everything cook for 2 minutes. 7. Place the cooked fish fillets on a platter and top with the almonds and bananas. 8. Drizzle the sauce around and over the fish. Add a little rum on top, and garnish with parsley. Serve hot. Bermuda has a distinct island flavor. Coming from Italy, the idea of cooking fish and bananas together seemed odd until I tried it. Today, this recipe is one of my most popular creations. s.a. prum wehlener sonnenuhr riesling kaBinett suggested By april gosling naude “S.A. Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett has a bright gold colour. On the nose it is fresh and pleasantly fruity. In the mouth there are flavors of lemon and peach against a mineral backdrop. Well-matched with salads, seafood and light veal dishes.“
LiVio’S tirAmiSu| Tiramisu de Livio Serves 6 6 eggs, whites separated from yolks 1 cup caster sugar ½ lb mascarpone cheese ½ lb ricotta cheese
Hot, strong espresso coffee ½ cup Tia Maria liqueur ¼ cup Kahlua Ladyfingers Cocoa powder, for dusting
1. In a bowl, beat the egg yolks with the sugar until thick and white, approximately 15 minutes. 2. Add the mascarpone and ricotta cheese, beating until the compote is well blended and smooth. 3. In a separate bowl, combine the coffee and liqueurs. Quickly dip the ladyfingers into the coffee-liqueur mixture, a few at a time. Set aside to cool. 4. In a clean bowl, whisk the egg whites until they are thick and stiff. Gently fold the whites into the mascarpone mixture. 5. Layer the biscuits, either into individual glass bowls or one big bowl, and alternate with the mascarpone mixture. 6. Refrigerate for at least 2 to 3 hours, prior to serving. When ready to serve dust top with powered cocoa. Cavit MosCato - suggested By april gosling naude “Cavit Moscato has notes of apricot, white peach and sage, a wonderful sweetness. It has a vibrant and refreshing quality, it’s no wonder Bermudians love Cavit Moscato.” Your LinDo’S ShoppinG LiSt: Eggs (just one needed) Egg whites (6 needed) All-purpose flour (1 1/2 cup) Baking powder Caster sugar (1 cup) Canola oil (4 cups) Salt and black pepper Cooking cream (1 cup) Softened butter (1/2 cup) Mascarpone cheese (1/2 lb) Ricotta cheese (1/2 lb) 4 Bermuda bananas Chopped fresh parsley (1/2 cup)
