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,

Here’s How Life Works By Roger Crombie Cup Match: the most civilised public holiday in the world. A four-day weekend; a two-day cricket match; a fashion show; Crown and Anchor — does life get any better than this? I went to Cup Match the very first time I could. It was 1976, St. George’s was playing some other team, and I forget which one. The game took place up at the West End of the Island. Before we continue, I should explain something. Bermuda traffic in those days was very different from the way it is now. People had cars and bikes, but they rarely used them. Driving or riding, especially the latter, was a joy. Anyone under 40 will probably think I’m mad, but that’s how it was. Riding a bike was not therefore the defensive exercise it has to be today. Half the time, you could choose your lane. People overtook on blind corners because there wasn’t much chance of meeting oncoming traffic. I know: sounds crazy, innit? Bad habits kill or injure more people on the roads than bad decisions do. I developed quite quickly the habit of believing myself to be the only vehicle on the road, because outside Hamilton, it was often the case that I was. Cup Match arrived, and a small convoy formed to ride out to the far reaches of the untamed west on the first day. At about 11am, the convoy — well, OK, the two bikes, mine and a pal with his missus — pulled out of Devonshire for the long day’s journey into cricket. Soon after Barnes Corner, a traffic jam appeared, which we decided must have stretched all the way to the match. When four wheels bad, two wheels better. Warily, at first, we pulled out and began to overtake the back end of what did indeed prove to be a hideously long-tailback (geddit?). Nothing, of course, was coming from the West End. I don’t think anyone lived up there then. I’m not sure anyone does now. We approached the point where the Police made everyone turn right into the parking area. I was cruising along outside the main stream of traffic in the right-hand lane and turned right, without looking to see if anything was coming towards me. Something was. To this day, I don’t know exactly what it was. A bike, obviously, but all I knew about it, as it zoomed by me at what seemed like 90 miles an hour, was the rush of wind it left behind. I looked around and it was nowhere to be seen. Here’s how life works. You chug along, doing what you can and coping and all that, and suddenly, out of the blue, a car accident, or a civil servant, or a hurricane or some other force of nature smacks you, and suddenly the remainder of your life is spent negotiating a track in a direction completely different from the one you were pursuing, which can never be regained. Oof, that was deep. Let me lie down for a while.
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.

The Facelift of the Future Thermage... This FDA approved procedure is now one of the most popular anti-aging treatments being used today. This is accomplished by using controlled radiofrequency 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.

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.

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 little history on The Beach House at Blackbeard’s Hideout A secluded cove on the islands of Bermuda is reportedly where one Edward Teach, better known as Blackbeard, spent some time hiding out from the Governor Eden of North Carolina around 1718. His ship the Queen Anne’s Revenge may have even anchored off Achilles’ Bay; the crew may have basked on the beach and fished and swam in crystal clear turquoise water. They may also have created a small hut on the shore to shelter from the sun but what stands there today has transformed into Blackbeard’s Hideout and The Beach House.

Mommy to be... spa review By Candice E. Dickinson
Every Mommy to be deserves some pampering, especially once she makes it past the first three months of pregnancy, which for most can be very uncomfortable. While the regular spa treatments aren’t all recommended during pregnancy and for various reasons, there are some spas with a heart who go above and beyond to make sure Mommies to be are not only welcome, but that they are treated by certified prenatal specialists who know just what to do ensuring a safe and happy experience for both Mommy and expecting baby. Let the pampering begin! The experience at Sense® spa starts when you walk into the hotel lobby at Rosewood Tucker’s Point. Take a deep breath. Is that aromatherapy in the air? The hotel is gorgeous and the décor will have your eyes wandering the room so be sure to watch your step. Rosewood employees are always polished, helpful and extremely friendly. When I entered Sense spa, I was greeted and taken to the luxurious changing room. From floor to ceiling, much like the hotel lobby there is a lot to take in and the room itself is beautiful and calming. Inside my locker I found a nice white robe and a pair of sandals. The ladies room was stocked with everything you might need to use after your treatment to make sure you are polished and ready to enter back into the outside world. At this point, I already felt like I was in heaven and the massage hadn’t even started yet. My Certified Prenatal Massage Therapist entered the room and quietly offered me a glass of peach juice and a warm towel to wipe my hands. I had filled out a standard form with my basic medical background and how many weeks pregnant I was. She would use this information to determine what she could and couldn’t do during the massage including whether I would need a support pillow to lie on my sides, etc. I then entered the massage room. She explained the entire procedure before we started and asked me to let her know if anything became uncomfortable including the room temperature. I felt extremely confident about my decision to give prenatal massage a try and began to forget about everyday life as I laid down.

Basic oil is used during the massage and the procedure helps your pain relieving endorphins start flowing throughout your body. Soothing music quietly plays in the background. Throughout the massage my therapist ensured my comfort at all times. A prenatal pillow was used to support my stomach and ease the comfort of my legs while lying on my sides. A warm towel soothed my feet and the massage was just the right amount of pressure. A prenatal massage promotes relaxation and normal blood pressure, emotional support and physical nurturing. It soothes muscle spasms, cramps, pain in the neck, back, hips, legs, feet and increases blood and lymphatic circulation supporting the physiological progress of pregnancy. After my massage finished I was walked to a post-treatment room where one can sit in front of a fireplace, enjoy a glass of fruit infused spring water and gaze out floor to ceiling windows taking in the spectacular view of the Rosewood Tucker’s Point property. I was already very relaxed and satisfied so this was by far an extra serving of icing on the cake. My experience at Sense spa, Rosewood Tucker’s Point was absolutely wonderful and I plan to visit the therapist again during my pregnancy for a prenatal massage and maybe a few other treatments. To learn more about all of the services available call the spa directly at 441 298 4032 and make sure to let the receptionist know that you are expecting. They will happily tell you which treatments you can enjoy during your pregnancy and inform you of any modifications to the treatment that are made to ensure yours and your expecting baby’s safety.

Impressions of Bermuda:
The David L. White Gift to THE Bermuda National Gallery Impressions of Bermuda: The David L. White Gift to the Bermuda National Gallery is an exhibition for all Bermuda guests seeking a visual art narrative that reiterates the beauty in our landscape and the very special quality of light that has captured the imaginations of artists across several generations, with particular attention to visiting American Impressionists in the early to mid 1900s. Here is a collector’s discerning eye, whose collection weaves a story of artists influencing each other. Many of these artists shared similar journeys: traveling together to explore and paint, studying at the same schools, and working in the same art colonies. Their artwork, collected here, read from one painting to the next as though they were meant to be living together like this always. This exhibition celebrates an enormous gift to the Island community and the museum’s Bermuda Collection: in total Mr. White has donated 77 pieces of artwork to the Bermuda National Gallery (BNG), 46 of which are presently on display. The BNGs Curator Sophie Cressall adds further detail: “The core of the collection are American Impressionist works by Reynolds Beale, William Chadwick, Harry Leslie Hoffman, Clark G. Vorhees, to name a few. The collection in total spans genres and styles from Realism to American Impressionism to early modern Expressionism, including local talents Alfred Birdsey and Charles Lloyd Tucker.” Mr. David L. White, OBE, Chairman Emeritus, champion of the arts, says of his gift: “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. The Bermuda National Gallery is the best place for them to be safely displayed and protected. Here they join the magnificent gift from John and Nelga Young and, of course, the Watlington Collection [of European art]. It is my hope that other people who may own Bermudian treasures will join me and give them to the Bermuda National Gallery.” Travelers look to museums to learn more about nation’s and their people; in this exhibition visitors will be taken back in time to the magical romanticism of Bermuda’s past, found in solitary sea vistas, winding narrow streets, and architectural perspectives that are both documentary and commentary. Time travels both ways however, for a stroll along the South Shore or through the historical town of St. George’s brings the impressions found in the exhibition to life again. There is a certain timelessness in the subject matter of the paintings, as well as the artists’ handling of colour and texture. While this reflects the selective eye of the collector, it also imitates the Island’s delicate, thriving environment. The fragility of our landscape is captured in these paintings, a reminder for us to protect our spaces, limit damage to this ecosystem, so that it will continue to inspire future guests, future artists. Join us at the BNG and share in this remarkable gift of artwork. Enjoy the experience at home and share the conversation of your visit with a hardcover publication of the collection, available for $25. Complimentary admission. Tours each Thursday at 10:30 am. Call ahead to confirm: 441-2959428. See www.bng.bm for more details.

LIKE MOTHER LIKE DAUGHTER
Carole Holding & Caroline Troncossi Tee Carole Holding | Artist When did you first develop a love of the arts? As a child I loved painting by numbers, I completed art to 0 level (GCSE) and was offered a job working in Fullers art department as a designer for chocolate wrappers, however, I turned that down. I was born into the hotel industry so naturally I choose to pursue hotel studies. I went to catering college and that was where I met my husband. During college I obtained my City and Guilds Certification. I then moved on and managed a restaurant on Regent Street in London, England. In 1968 I moved to Bermuda and was married in 1969. I was a stay-at-home mom when I had my children and started a recreational art class once a week at Mount St. Agnes. I began dabbling in all sorts of creative things for the kids, cakes, arts, crafts and themed birthday parties. I once planned a party for 72 children. When the Queen was visiting Bermuda, I held a themed birthday party and made the boys hats with swords and the girls princess tiaras. The birthday cake was a castle with marzipan animals, even the sandwiches where part of the theme. I also enjoyed hosting dinner parties for my husband and his friends from the hotel industry. You now own 4 shops in Bermuda and your label is one of the top recognized labels Island wide. How did your career unfold? I focused more and more on art and painting as a hobby. As it developed, I started selling my paintings at a small gallery on Front Street. After the first set of paintings, it was only one week later that the gallery requested more. I was approached by the West End Development Corporation to assist with getting the Craft Market in Dockyard established. After my time with the Craft Market, I opened my first studio in St. George’s below the Historical Society on Featherbed Alley. I sold my art out of the studio and also started selling crafts. A few years later I moved onto the square above the White Horse Tavern, St. George’s. Soon I was asked to return to Dockyard and I opened a large shop in the Clocktower Mall selling art & crafts and also an antiques shop called Victoriana, this was decorated in a Victorian theme. I would travel to England frequently and buy small antiques, however, it became harder and harder to keep it up and prices were skyrocketing. My father was an auctioneer. When he married my mother he went into the hotel industry and didn’t pursue his dream. He had an eye for antiques and so I shared that. Eventually I closed both of the Clocktower mall shops and opened a shop at The Fairmont Southampton Hotel. Two years ago I returned to Dockyard with a boutique shop in the Clocktower Mall and also a larger shop at Heritage Wharf. This shop now includes selling my art and other duty free items. Please tell us more about Carol Holding Studio’s Collection. I have a line of Flower Fragrances of Bermuda, jewelry and more recently I have designed a range of Chintz china including Tea pots, bowls and mugs, Bermuda scene chopping boards have authentic recipes allowing my cooking background to offer those skills. I have branched out with my own food label which includes jams, chutneys, mustards and Bacardi Rum Cakes. Please tell us more about your cooking label. I usually spend the winter creating several recipes, which my family taste tests then we have a family discussion about each before I finalize the recipes. I always design labels and packaging and
source a manufacturer. Originally this would take me about two years to complete.
In the Arts 43 Do you have anything new planned for the near future? I am always looking at new ideas. Stay tuned.

Caroline Troncossi Tee I Artist
Located in the beautiful Botanical Gardens, five minutes from Hamilton, the museum is on three major bus routes (1,2 & 7) and is clearly signposted from all entrances.
My family’s environment was very artistic growing up. Colors were a big inspiration for me and I quickly grew to love combining colors in everything that I did. As a child simple tasks such as picking out my outfit for the day would be focused on matching colors corresponding with my mood.
Hours of operation
When did you first develop a love of the arts?
When did you start to really focus on the arts and decide to pursue it as a career option?
At age 11 I attended St. Leonards-Mayfield School in England. Seven of my 10 subjects were mandatory, I choose art subjects for the rest. I completed A Level Art, Art History and 3 dimensional design. The school encouraged academics and didn’t approve of my focus on arts. Most students applied to universities such as Cambridge and Oxford. I made an appointment with the head master and convinced her that I was going to pursue a career in the arts. Just before applying to college I did a summer internship at the Rhode Island School of Deisgn (RISD). I then applied and was accepted to Parsons School of Art Continued on page 44

44 In the Arts and Design in New York City. I had a phenomenal experience at Parsons. I completed foundation and first year degree, then became distracted when the Sensation Exhibition first opened in London. Sensation was a collection of contemporary art owned by Charles Saatchi and included works by Young British Artists such as Damien Hirst. It was the first major show for Damien Hirst. That was where the art scene was so I needed to be there to be fully inspired. Parsons wouldn’t allow me to transfer to London for a semester so I applied to Central Saint Martins and when I was accepted I finished my degree there. Central Saint Martins didn’t offer the same academic courses which really helped form my art work. Worldwide art shows recognize both Parsons and Central Saint Martins on an equal level.
During your education, what do you feel was the most positive experience and how do you now apply what you learned to your work?
There were so many positive experiences at Parsons, one in particular was that I studied color theory for an entire year. It turned out to be the best grounding for making paintings. Color became automatic for me. I started getting into color field paintings and worked on how different colors effect emotions. I found it amazing how people’s reactions were to my use of color. The experiences of living in an art community also helps feed your creativity and you become prolific with your work. My mom and I are fortunate enough to have eachother and often discuss our art work for input.
What’s your next move?
I now teach pilates, yoga, strength training and have been studying energy vortexes and chakras. In my latest art work, I have combined color and bodies in movement to express emotion and I am really enjoying it. So I will continue with this method for now.

Industry and Fashion at Somerset Bridge Being an archipelago of some one hundred or so islands, the first settlers of Bermuda in 1612, four hundred years ago this month, were faced with some communication problems by road, although most traffic was maritime, by the sea in row boats or small sailing dinghies. Within a few years, however, three vital bridges were constructed, in between making fortifications at the behest of the early governors. The first bridge connected St. George’s Island with Ferry Island, from whence people, horses and eventually carriages could be transported to the main island of Bermuda by a flat-bottomed ‘horse ferry’. Another bridge spanned the only access to the sea for Harrington Sound and that was, and is, Flatt’s Bridge at the village of Hamilton Parish of that name. The westernmost bridge, depicted here, was Somerset Bridge which joined the Main with the island of that name. In this view of that bridge, about 1890, two finely-dressed ladies sit incongruously on the shore, amid heaps of old rope and rigging and discarded timbers from boats. On the opposite shore, several men work industriously on a careened Bermuda sloop, scrapping barnicale from its bottom; the fashionable ladies, obviously posing, take no interest on one of the major occupations of the island.

Heritage MatterS by Dr. Edward Harris, MBE Aerial view of Scaur Hill Fort looking west to Ely’s Harbour.
Sightless at Scaur Hill Fort Somerset Bridge is a useless monument, at least in military terms, as its drawbridge is too small, unlike those at the Dockyard that left a wide, gaping hole, when withdrawn. Yet Somerset Bridge was a critical passage for any army attacking the Dockyard from the rear, or landside. With the longer range of guns of the 1850s, it was necessary to prevent an invading army from reaching Somerset Island, from where its guns could shell the Dockyard with impunity. In time of war, the procedure was probably to destroy Somerset Bridge by hand, or shell it into oblivion with the guns of the new fort on Scaur Hill, built in the 1870s less than a mile to the north. The enemy would have heard its guns but would have been sightless, for the cannon were mounted on the new Moncrieff “disappearing carriage”. According to artillery historian, Collin Carpenter FSA, Scaur Hill Fort has the last known remains of Capt. Moncrieff’s smallest version of a disappearing carriage. When the gun was fired, the force of the shot pushes the barrel and carriage down into a deep gun emplacement. The gun is loaded in that depressed position, while the enemy is looking from the cannon, hopefully without success. Once reloaded, a five-ton counterweight throws the gun back into its elevated position above the rampart. A reproduction of the gun was emplaced by the Parks Department a few years ago. Scaur Hill Fort is a monument of some architectural interest, for it displays in stone and concrete the great change taking place in the design of fortifications in the last quarter of the nineteenth century. Until that time, forts were buildings for offensive action that could also be defended, but by the 1870s, the idea of a fort was being replaced by gun positions with little defensive architecture, such as seen An 1870s site plan of Scaur Hill Fort later at St. David’s Battery of 1910. showing the shore-to-shore ditch.
Bermudaâ€™s Heritage Matters History 49
Site plan of Scaur Hill Fort with its two guns on disappearing carriages.
The ditch at Scaur Hill Fort is the longest in Bermuda. It starts on the eastern side of Somerset Island, runs around the southern edge of the fort, proceeding westward across the road and downhill to Elyâ€™s Harbour. A wooden bridge on Somerset Road once spanned the ditch. Times change, enemies come and go. A clear and present danger in the later 1800s, it is now hard to imagine that an American enemy would have come marching through Southampton and southern Sandys Parish and into Somerset to attack the Royal Naval Dockyard, after landing on the south shore beaches. To prevent such an invasion and American occupation of Bermuda, seven new forts were built here in the late Victorian period and a number were rearmed with advanced weapons. The system appears to have worked. Thanks to the enemy of old, a mere 700 miles to the west, Bermuda has an outstanding array of military heritage in architecture and artillery. If we would but care more for these monuments, we might entice more Americans to our shores for a modern invasion in the gentler guise of friendly visitors.

…About the First Bermuda Books? Part II – Susette Harriet Lloyd – ‘Sketches of Bermuda’
Susette Harriet Lloyd visited Bermuda from 1829 to 1831 and stayed with the family of Archdeacon Aubrey George Spencer. During her 2-year stay she wrote a series of letters to her friends in England, many of them concerning local people and their living conditions just prior to emancipation in 1834. On her return to England Susette Harriet Lloyd was urged to publish her letters, resulting in her book ‘Sketches of Bermuda’. In her Preface, she wrote ‘The recent changes which have taken place in the legal condition of the negroes in our West India colonies, having rendered any authentic information connected with the subject desirable at the present moment, it is hoped, that the following pages will not be deemed altogether uninteresting, especially since they refer to a country which, though the smallest of all our West India possessions, has attracted a greater degree of attention The title page of ‘Sketches of Bermuda’, than others of larger extent, in consequence published in 1835. of its deviation from the emancipation bill, passed by the mother country, and, with the single exception of Antigua, adopted generally by the colonies.’
A rather romanticized view of Flatts.
Do You Know... 51
This view of Hamilton Harbour has obviously been embellished for the European travel book market.

The Map of Bermuda shows the outlying reefs and the north of Bermuda ‘Filled with Rocks’.
‘This little colony being, from its geographical situation, the key to our trans-atlantic possessions, naturally acquires considerable importance, while the singularity of its formation, the beauty of its scenery, and the variety of interest in its natural productions, seem to entitle it to a more distinct notice than it has yet received in the casual allusions of different writers.’ The 273-page ‘Sketches of Bermuda’ by Susette Harriet Lloyd includes beautifully engraved views of Hamilton, Flatts and Paynter Vale at Bailey’s Bay, as well as a more detailed map of Bermuda than the one published a few years earlier by Richard Cotter in his book of the same title.

What are the Odds of a Hole in One? By Paul Adams Despite the seemingly improbable odds that a person can hit a golf ball into a hole in one shot from at least 150 yards, it happens all the time. While the internet provides information on anything and everything you could possibly think of, most of the quoted odds for an amateur making a hole in one are wildly off. For example, I’ve seen odds ranging from 10,000 to 1 all the way up to 100,000 to 1. The odds of an amateur golfer making a hole in one on a par 3 hole are roughly 12,500 to 1. Furthermore, the odds of a professional golfer making a hole in one on a par 3 hole are closer to 2,500 to 1. Some golfers play for years without shooting a hole in one, while others manage to do it at an early age. The youngest player was barely out of diapers when he shot his first hole in one. Jake Paine was just three years old when he shot a hole in one on a 65 yard hole in Lake Forest, California. The oldest player is Harold Stilson, from Boca Raton, Florida. He was 101 years old when he aced the 108 yard 16th hole with a four iron at the Deerfield Country Club on May 16, 2001. Most Hole In Ones Norman Manley, of California, holds the record for most hole in ones with 59. Manley shot his first hole in one in 1964 and aced four holes in 1979. That’s not too bad considering the odds of hitting a hole in one are roughly 1 in 40,000. Famous First Hole In Ones Tiger Woods was six years old when he hit his first hole in one. Michelle Wie has had six hole in ones in her short golfing career. Wie shot her first ace when she was 12. On Good Friday this year one of my members, Alex Withers-Clarke got a hole in one, aged just 9 years old. Alex was handed a plastic set of clubs when his family moved to Bermuda when he was 13 months old. By 18 months he had blown through several sets and as he was a clear lefty we got him a proper set. So I think it’s really 18 months to 2 years old that he really started.

GOLF PRO of
Meet Darron Swan Head Pro at Belmont Hills Golf By Simona Terceira Darron Swan is a full-time Golf Pro and Director of Golf at Newstead Belmont Hills Golf Course. Darron became a Golf Pro at the age of 21. In 1986 he was Trainee Assistant Golf Pro Manager at St. George’s Golf Course under the tutelage of his brother, Kim Swan. At that time he attended various Golf Schools. The Bermuda Government sponsored him on various development programmes facilitated by PGA America – programmes such as Teaching, Merchandising, Rules of Golf, Golf Course Operations etc… Darron became Assistant Golf Professional at Belmont Hills in 1988 where he stayed for a year before moving to Riddles Bay as Head Golf Professional. He worked at Riddells Bay for 13 years before moving back to the newly designed Belmont Hills.
Can you start by telling us a little bit about how you got into Golf to begin with?
I started Golf at the age of 5 mainly because my brother was involved in Golf. My brother Kim Swan is currently one of the teaching Professionals at Port Royal Golf Course. Over the years as my interest grew and my skills developed, I realized that I was very happy with a career doing something that was very enjoyable and fulfilling.
What do you like about working at Belmont Hills?
The atmosphere at Newstead Belmont Hills is a ‘family’ atmosphere. You will find that all of the staff is very hospitable, creative and ready for a laugh. Apart from the beautiful surroundings, well kept golf course, adequate staffing and facilities, there is a team mentality, which encourages good working relations. There is never a day when I think I don’t want to go to work. I am usually the first in and last out.
What has been the highlight of your career?
There are so many highlights. I get great joy seeing a lot of my students become professionals. Dwayne Gibson was one of my students and the moment he became a Head Professional was a proud moment for me. Throughout his training with me, I focused on teaching Golf Shop Operations, Tournament Organization, Club Fitting and How to Teach. Dwayne currently works with me at Belmont Hills.
Why is Belmont Hills a ‘must play’ for visitors to the Island?
Every one of the 6100 yards of intense bunkering, multi-tiered greens and slender fairways of the Belmont Hills Golf Course is designed to test your shot-making abilities. Panoramic views of bustling Hamilton Harbour and the Great Sound provide the perfect backdrop for some of the most enjoyable and challenging 18 holes on the island. And of course the congenial atmosphere of all the staff is a plus.
What advice would you offer someone considering playing at Belmont Hills?
Belmont Hills is an ‘accuracy’ Golf Course. If your driving accuracy is of a high percentage, you can use Drivers all day but if your percentage is low, you have the flexibility of using your Irons. Great Putters have huge success at this course! Our Pro Shop has a variety of high-end brands: Adidas, Nike, Callaway to name a few; a good selection of Putters and tailor-made Drivers and Fairway Woods. One of our most in demand items in the shop includes Clic Gear pull carts that come in various colors. We have very competitive rates and we also offer the DREAM OF A LIFETIME package where players enter into a draw to win 4 nights accommodation at Newstead Belmont Hills Resort. (All Newstead guests receive a complimentary round of Golf daily)

sherry peppers are indigenous to bermuda and synonymous with outerbridge's It all began centuries ago when sailors began fortifying barrels of sherry with fiery hot peppers. The all-purpose seasoning was used to mask the less than appetizing taste of rancid ship rations. Not exactly an alluring origin and perhaps they would have been more precise to call it “Peppered Sherry” but… we cannot rewrite history. “Love the sauces! We now give them as gifts to friends and relatives.”– Sandra R. (Kentucky) In 1964, Yeaton Duval Outerbridge and his cousin Robert “Robbie” Dean Outerbridge decided to brew up a batch of Bermuda sherry peppers for use at Robbie’s Harbourfront Restaurant in Hamilton. Since then, Outerbridge’s Original has become synonymous with sherry pepper sauce. Nearly every restaurant and pantry in Bermuda includes a bottle of Outerbridge’s Original Sherry Peppers. It is THE Bermuda hot sauce that predates the hot sauce craze by decades. “My secret ingredient” - Alisa S (Vermont) Today, Outerbridge’s Original brand includes twenty-seven gourmet products including ready-to-serve Bermuda Fish Chowder and Sherry Rum Peppers, a blend of the customary enhancers for chowder. Other shaker bottles include Swashbuckling Steak Sauce, Sizzling Soy Sauce, Bloody Mary Fix, Wine Vinegar Peppers, Full Hot Mustard Sauce, Royal Full Hot Rum Peppers and Devilishly Hot Sherry Peppers that are twelve times hotter than the original. Outerbridge’s Founder’s Reserve is a 750ml fish shaped bottle with pouring spout that makes a great gift or souvenir. Outerbridge’s Original Barbecue Sauces are available Mild or Devilishly Hot, as are our Peppered Jellies and Admiral’s Cocktail Onions are an extra-spicy Bermudian delicacy. I have wowed many dinner guests with your sauces Charles M. (Michigan) The Outerbridge family also helped originate the Bermuda Rum Swizzle and our all-natural crystal mix makes over a quart of liquid sunshine. The popular taste inspired our newest product, Bermuda Swizzle Taffy - salt water taffy that tastes like a rum swizzle but without the alcohol. Outerbridge’s has also introduced four spice packs for rubs and marinades; Fantastic Fish, Righteous Ribs, Tempting Tasty Chicken and Luscious London Broil. Outerbridge’s Original Cookbook, in its sixth printing, is a collection of favorite family recipes and Bermudian cuisine.
“Bring on the best sauce in the world” Todd M. (Massachusetts)
THE AUTHENTIC TASTE OF BERMUDA born of a centuries old seafaring tradition, Outerbridge Peppers Limited was founded by Yeaton duval Outerbridge, a fourteenth generation bermudian whose family settled the island in 1620, the same year the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth rock aboard the Mayflower. The modest business that began almost fifty years ago has grown into a delicious line of gourmet products that are treasured by loyal fans around the world.

IN & ON THE WATER
MEET THE CHALLENGER By Dolphin Quesrt
Blending into the rocky bottom of the Dolphin Quest Bermuda Keep is a magnificent 250 pound green sea turtle named Challenger. Being 22 years of age Challenger has just reached maturity and could still grow up to 400 pounds as his species lives to an average of 80 years. Challenger is awfully sleepy throughout the winter months due to the colder water temperature and most often will be found sleeping lodged under a rock in his pool. In order to conserve energy he can hold his breath up to 5 hours by slowing his heart rate to 1 beat every 9 minutes, so it can be hard to find him unless you look carefully. oYSTer PoINT YAcHT cHArTerS

Welcome AboArd This luxurious Tayana 55ft. yacht is available for private entertaining. Enjoy a sail or cruise on Bright Star II, have brunch, lunch, dinner or just cocktails aboard. Over night charters also available. We can provide it all. Brian W. Billings (441) 535 7704 | firstname.lastname@example.org www.oysterpointyachtcharters.com
As the sea temperature in Bermuda starts to rise throughout the summer, to a high of around 86 degrees Fahrenheit, Challenger will become increasingly active. Once he begins to move and swim about more, Challenger will start back to â€œschoolâ€? and begin learning new behaviors from his trainers. While you may not think that a turtle can be trained, Challenger is actually a quick learner. He is already trained to swim through a gate to move from one pool to another. Now we are working on training him to swim from one trainer to another (A to B training). Challenger is learning that when one trainer gives him the signal and he is pointed to the other trainer, he is to swim to the other trainer. When he arrives at that other trainer, he is rewarded with fresh romaine lettuce. Green sea turtles primary dietary sources in the wild are sea lettuce and sea grasses, in addition to jelly fish during the juvenile stage. Just like with our dolphin family, Challenger greatly benefits from training in order to remain physically and mentally stimulated. And after just a few months trainers are already looking to see his full potential and making his training even
more challenging by sending him between two pools and eventually even through hula hoops! More info www.dolphinquest.com

Conveniently located adjacent to the Cruise Ship Pier, Bus and Ferry stop, we offer up to date information on transport, local events, attractions and tours.

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. COMMISSIONER’S HOUSE National Museum of Bermuda, Royal Naval Dockyard Located within the confines of the National Museum of Bermuda, Commissioner’s House dominates this complex and entire surroundings from its elevated position. Largely constructed between 1823 and 1828, this commanding Georgian ‘house’ epitomizes British imperial style, power and engineering wherewithal during the nineteenth century. An experimental building in several regards, Commissioner’s House may have been the first domestic project anywhere to use cast iron to support

Bobby started as an assistant sushi chef back in Philippines in 1999, at a Japanese restaurant called Komoro Soba. After 5 years he became a head sushi chef and in 2006 he came to Bermuda. He is the only sushi chef at Salt Rock Grill and you can find him there from Tuesday to Sunday, lunch or dinner. What do you enjoy the most at your job? I have many regular customers that come to the sushi bar and together we create unique rolls. I like to be challenged. If you tell me what type of fish you like, I will create something unique for you. As a matter of fact I have a client that named one of my creations after himself. His name is Lee Jay and he comes here 4 times a week for dinner all the way from Devonshire, often bringing his wife or friends. The Lee Jay Special is an avocado boat. You will have to come here and order it to see why it is so special. Why is your sushi different from other restaurants? I have the generic sushi rolls on my menu but I also have rolls that you can find only here at Salt Rock Grill. I try to only use local fish, tuna, wahoo or snapper.
CHEF OF THE MONTH 89
What’s the most popular roll from your menu? The most popular roll is no. 56. OH JOY, People enjoy it so much that we had to call it OH JOY. It is a tempura roll of crab, mango, avocado, shrimp, seaweed and cream cheese. I think it is the most popular roll in Bermuda. At Salt Rock Grill we have 2 menus for lunch or dinner. A sushi menu and a restaurant menu where you can find everything you would like to eat, from fish to steak or lamb. We like to offer a wide variety of food to our customers. Did you ever have a disaster in the kitchen? It was a Saturday night. It was so busy that I ran out of sushi rice and I had to cook rice while the customers were at the bar waiting for their sushi. It takes 20 minutes to cook rice and my customers had to wait for over 30 minutes for their sushi. To be honest I have a feeling that my customers were having fun watching me struggling with the busy night. I didn’t get any complaints, everybody was happy with their sushi made with fresh rice. :) Would you like to create a plate for our readers? The plate that I will create for you contains: salmon nigiri, tuna nigiri, local wahoo sashimi, local tuna sashimi and of course, our most popular roll, Oh Joy. I like the taste of the fresh raw fish so if it were just up to me I would serve a lot of sashimi. Nothing can beat the taste of fresh local sashimi. SAKE SUGGESTION: shimizu-no-mai PURE DAWN junmai ginjo sake Sake pairing by April Gosling Naude, Gosling’s Aroma: Hints of orange peel and light floral notes, with an underlying minerality. Taste: Fresh and well-structured, with subtle notes of pear and Fuji apple. Finish: Creamy, finishes soft-sweet to dry.

Meet The FLANAGANS Manager Trio By Candice E Dickinson
Andrew Trott How long have you been with Flanagan’s? 4 years. Previously and since 1999 I was the head golf pro at the Fairmont Southampton, Riddell’s Bay and Tuckers Point golf clubs. I still teach on my days off at Port Royal. What is your title at Flanagan’s? I am the Restaurant manager and also bartend, run the functions in the Outback Sports Bar and in the main restaurant. What is the best part about working in this industry and for such a great company like Flanagan’s? I live to be around people, it’s great interacting with visitors, locals and our regulars. The Flanagan’s crew really works together and takes care of each other especially the owners who are always around and available when needed. When we have a day off, there is nothing to worry about. Everything gets done and any problems that arise are just a phone call away. The hours are flexible and we are able to still enjoy life and do things that we want to do. Too many jobs consume people’s lives and they quickly loose sight of everything that is going on around them and in the world. Do you have any advice for someone who wants to get into the industry? Don’t be afraid to talk to people and ask questions. Be presentable, polite and show up on time. You will get out what you put in.
Michael James Neil John Sheehy Please tell us a little about yourself! I am the son of John Joseph Sheehy, former Chief of CID and #3 man in the Bermuda Police Force. My mother is the beautiful Joan Sheehy. In 1985 we left Bermuda and moved to Texas where I attended the University of Houston and studied hotel management. I joined the United States Marine Corps and after Dessert Storm, I returned to Houston worked at the Outback Steak House as a waiter, then general manager learning about quality and people. I always dreamt about returning to Bermuda so after my time at the Outback I did just that. I worked at the Fairmont Southampton for six years and then saw that Flanagan’s had an opening. I was lucky enough to land the position. Do you have any advice for someone who wants to get into the industry? Do your homework and find the right company. That alone will make you successful.
Al McIntosh Where are you from and what brought you to Flanagan’s? I am originally from Glasgow, Scotland. I was living in Canada a while back and saw a job opening at Salt Rock Bar & Grill in Bermuda. I had a choice at that time to return to Scotland or head to Bermuda. I decided to try Bermuda out and met my wife while working at Salt Rock. I spent 6 years there and 3 months ago moved to Flanagan’s. What is your position at Flanagan’s? I am a manager 2 or 3 nights a week. I look after the floor and help out wherever I am needed. What do you really like about working here at Flanagan’s? I really enjoy the customers at Flanagan’s and our staff. My job at Flanagan’s offers me more time to spend with my family. I have 2 sons; one is 4 and the other just 5 months. I have 2 or 3 evenings a week free to spend at home being a dad and a husband. I also really enjoy our customers and our staff.

Harley’s, The Fairmont Hamilton Princess By Candice E. Dickinson Today more and more adults are focusing on healthy eating habits and some are struggling to erase bad habits they developed in the past as children and young adults. So what about our kids today? If we can get them choosing healthy now, maybe there will be less of a struggle to maintain their healthy eating habits as they grow older. Most restaurants offer children’s menus featuring kids’ favourites such as French fries, pizza, chicken fingers, macaroni and cheese, etc. Kids’ eyes light up and if they don’t get to indulge in these naughty favourites at home, they will surely be scanning the menu at a restaurant when given the opportunity. The Fairmont Hamilton Princess has not only designed a menu for children but they have put a healthy twist on the usual favourites that kids love. Changes in recipes include using whole-wheat flour instead of refined white flour, incorporating fruits and vegetables to help meet the daily fibre recommendation and employing alternative cooking methods. Genius! We chose three young candidates to join us for dinner at Harley’s Restaurant at The Fairmont Hamilton Princess. We didn’t tell them what to expect or what they would be having for dinner; we just made sure they didn’t have any allergies that we would have to notify our server of. The coast was clear so we booked a reservation and off we went on a Monday evening at 6pm for dinner. Olivia age 6, Nazy age 10 and Jack age 14 were seated in the Harley’s dining room in The Fairmont Hamilton Princess. Chef Trent Mayhew greeted us at the table and introduced himself to the kids. He then let us know that he had chosen a selection of entrees for our young taste testers to try out. Olivia, Nazy and Jack placed their napkins on their laps and waited patiently. In the mean time we had a
Where to Eat & Drink 95
peek at the menu and I asked each of them what they would have ordered if they had a choice. Olivia said that she would have ordered the cheese pizza and would have asked for pepperoni on top, Nazy had his eyes on the cheese pizza as well and Jack was interested in French fries. The dishes soon arrived and to our surprise, they were quite different than what the kids had discussed ordering. The menu is set up so that kids choose an entrée and two sides to go with it. Chef Mayhew explained each entrée and the kids dug in. • • • • •
BBQ Chicken Breast with a side of steamed brown rice and steamed broccoli Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich with carrot sticks and strawberries on the side Chicken Fingers with mashed potatos and watermelon wedges Penne Pasta & Tomato Sauce with house made meatballs Grilled Cheese Sandwich with grapes and pineapple
Olivia, Nazy and Jack cleaned the plates. Olivia loved the Chicken Fingers and Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Nazy and Jack said that they would choose the Penne Pasta with meatballs over their original choices of cheese pizza and French fries. The kids all enjoyed the fruit and vegetables on the side and felt as though it was more like a treat than a task to eat their veggies. Nazy exclaimed, yummylicious as he ate his watermelon wedges. We were surprised to see just how much the kids enjoyed their sides of fruits and vegetables. The way the entrees were presented, it really was like a little treat on the side. Everything was fresh and delicious. Kids are still kids so when we finished they smiled big and asked for dessert. Olivia and Nazy had the brownie served with ice cream and sprinkles and Jack had chocolate chip cookies. We didn’t feel the desserts were along the guidelines of healthy options, however, after eating such a healthy selection of whole grains, fruits and vegetables, it is only natural to indulge in a naughty little dessert.

By Simona Terceira
Donald Hassell Somerset Country Squire When it comes to bartending there are many things that can be learned from those who have years of experience behind the stick. Many of these bartenders have seen the recent evolution of the craft for themselves and have invaluable advice for those just starting out in the field. Donald Hassell is one of them. How did you start as a bartender? It was 1974 when I started working at Henry VIII. I worked there for 14 years. The first 8 years I worked in the kitchen becoming a chef and for 6 years as a captain where one of my responsibilities was the bar. When they were busy I would jump behind the bar to help, that’s how I learned to make drinks. In 1987 I bought Somerset Country Squire and since 1988 I am here doing anything and everything that needs to be done whether in the kitchen, behind the bar or on the floor. Where do you start when creating a new drink? First I look at the weather and it depends on if it’s a sunny day or a rainy day. Second I ask if the client likes juices or ice cream. If it’s a hot day nothing beats a frozen drink. Being a chef as well I know what ingredients blend well together. So if you come and ask for a special cocktail you know that you will get something tasty. Do you have any signature drinks that you’d like to share with us?
Calm Water Mangrove Bay 1 oz Absolut Vodka, 1oz De Kuyper Blue Curacao, 1oz of De Kuyper Triple Sec, 1/2 oz Lemon bar mix, top with Sprite

Woodys Sports Bar
To be taken seriously as a woman behind the bar is an arduous task that is still felt in some areas of the industry. The bar is becoming less of a man’s world every year and there are more and more women who are at the forefront of modern mixology. Manika Smith, head bartender at the Woodys Sports Bar in Somerset is one of those ladies. She started as a bartender at Woody’s 16 years ago, and after 5 years she was promoted to bar manager. What do you love about your job? After 16 years of work I still feel that I can learn more. This is a type of job where you don’t know what to expect when you go to work. Every day is different and that’s what I love the most about being a bartender. What should people expect when they come to Woody’s? Woody’s is a great place for visitors to come and hang out with locals. Our customers are mainly locals that love sports and good food. We have 4 big screens that can be viewed from any angle of the bar. We also serve lunch and dinner every day and on Sundays we serve the traditional Sunday morning breakfast, codfish and potatoes. At Woody’s our customers can choose their own music. We have a Jukebox with a large variety of oldies, R&B, reggae and soca music. At Woody’s we also have karaoke night every Monday and Tuesday evening. We offer wireless microphones for our customers so they can dance while they are singing. And last but not least we have a Wi Fi sports machine for rainy days when people like to be indoors playing games and drinking. We also have a great selection of food from bar food to fresh shrimp, wahoo and grouper fish. Are you doing something special for Cup match? On August 2nd and 3rd we have a big party featuring 2 DJs and 2 bars, one inside and one on the patio. What is your best selling drink? Our bestseller is Chivas and Guinness. During the summer you can’t beat a cold drink. Can you suggest some drinks for our readers to try out? I can recommend 4 drinks that are a must-try here at Woody’s Sports Bar. If you are still thirsty, you can’t go wrong with a St. Pauli’s Girl Ice Cold Beer!

CHIVAS ON THE ROCKS Next try a nice Chivas on the rocks with a splash of water

what’s Cooking Bermuda?
with Barry Cohen
Summer time is Chicken Time
Although anytime is a good time for chicken, I especially love this tender cuisine during the summer. The versatility of chicken allows us to create 1000’s of way for you to enjoy this delectable item, without ever cooking it the same way twice if you so desire. The two recipes I am suggesting are full of fresh ingredients and bold flavors. They are both perfect for causal summertime entertaining and will certainly deliver rave reviews from all of your guests. Have fun with your selection of sides and salads to accompany these dishes. Herb Grilled Chicken with Chipotle’s Corn Salsa Ingredients 1.5 lb chicken breast 1-2 TB dried oregano (about a small palm full) 1-2 TB dried thyme 1-2 TB dried basil 1-2 TB garlic powder A few nice size pinches of kosher salt and fresh ground pepper Olive oil Directions 1. In a small bowl, combine oregano, thyme, basil, garlic, salt and pepper. 2. Lay chicken breasts on baking sheet or plate. Sprinkle both sides of chicken with seasoning and rub. Drizzle olive oil on both sides of chicken. Place on hot grill, over medium heat. Grill 5-7 minutes on each side or until done, when juices run clear. 3. Let chicken rest for 5 minutes before cutting. Chipotle’s Corn Salsa Ingredients 6 ears of fresh corn (or about 3 cups of frozen corn kernels) 2-3 poblanos, roasted and chopped (see directions) 1 medium red onion, chopped 2 jalapenos, chopped Handful of cilantro, roughly chopped or torn Queso fresco, crumbled Juice from 1-2 limes Salt and black pepper, to taste

112 What’s Cooking Bermuda Chipotle’s Corn Salsa Continued from pg 102 Directions 1. Cook corn in boiling water for about 5-8 minutes. Carefully cut kernels off stems and add to salad bowl. If you want a roasted corn, cook in water first, then throw onto hot grill for a few minutes to char skin. 2. Combine corn, chopped roasted poblanos, chopped onion and jalapenos into a bowl. Add lime juice, salt and pepper to taste. Right before serving add cilantro and queso fresco and toss gently to combine. 3. Spoon generously on top of the Chicken .and enjoy! WINE SUGGESTION: BODEAS EIDOSELA Albariño Wine pairing by April Gosling Naude, Gosling’s Wine: Marqués de Cáceres Red Rioja is the most widely distributed Spanish wine brand in the U.S. It is restrained, earthy, and food-friendly—exactly what an affordable Spanish red should be! It has an intense bouquet of blackberries and blueberries with a hint of delicate spice and roasted coffee. Full and fleshy in the mouth with a nice balance of delicious flavours and smooth tannins that linger on the palate. Pistachio Stuffed Chicken with Lingonberry Glaze Ingredients 2 large chicken breasts 1/4 cup golden raisins 1/4 cup chopped pistachios 1/4 panko (I used whole wheat) 2 oz crumbled goat cheese pinch of cardamom salt and fresh ground pepper 1/3 cup red wine 2 TB of Lingonberry preserves
Directions 1. With a pairing knife, gently make a deep slit in the thickest part of the chicken breast. Be careful not to pierce through the other side. Sprinkle salt and pepper and pinch of cardamom on both sides of chicken. 2. In a bowl, combine raisins, pistachios, panko and goat cheese. Stuff the mixture into chicken breasts. Secure opening with toothpicks to keep stuffing from falling out. 3. Place chicken into hot oven proof skillet with about 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil. Cook chicken evenly on each side, until golden brown. Place skillet into preheated 375 degrees oven. Cook for about 20 minutes, until chicken is cooked through. Take skillet out of oven and place back on burner. Take chicken out and let rest on a plate. Pour wine and 2 tablespoons of preserves into hot pan, deglaze all of the leftover bits of chicken and let simmer until slightly thick. Place chicken back into pan for a few minutes to absorb some of the sauce. 4. Once chicken is done, place on plate and drizzle glaze over chicken. WINE SUGGESTION: BODEAS EIDOSELA Albariño Wine pairing by April Gosling Naude, Gosling’s Bodegas Eidosela Albariño is a new wine from Spain; it is 100% Albariño. Straw yellow with green flashes; it is clean and bright. It has a high intensity at nose; it is very fragrant, fruity and floral, fresh and subtle, recalling the peach and apricot. In the mouth is powerful, full-bodied and with an adequate alcoholic degree, balanced acidity, harmonious and with many pleasant nuances. Its persisting taste is pleasant, elegant and complete.
