On a recent episode of a Food Network show that focuses on Asian Cuisine (we're fans of food from every region) the host highlighted that Chicken Wings are a favourite finger food around the globe, and every region has their own spin on just how they like them. National Chicken Wing Day...(no seriously...this is really a thing...click here if you don't believe it) is celebrated annually on July 29th so we thought we'd highlight just a few places who to wing-it well, here in Bermuda.
We're not sure if you're aware, but there's something kind of amazing happening over at North Rock Restaurant, and we need to talk about it.
It’s Cup Match time in Bermuda and while the fever has taken a hold of the island, we can’t forget about the prelude to Cup Match…Eastern County Cricket - conventionally known simply as ‘County Game’. As much as Bermuda's favourite two day holiday (Cup Match) is steeped with annual rituals by the frenzied fans, this tournament played between the four eastern counties, carries a rich set of traditions that run almost as deep.
Since 1932, the Swizzle Inn has been welcoming guests (first-timers and repeat visitors) with fresh-made food and their infamous jugs of Rum Swizzle. For anyone not in the know, Swizzle is a cocktail made from a combination of rum and fruit juices and is notorious for going down easy, and leaving you...happy. The perfect "welcome back/home", if you will. There are many variations on the Island - everyone has their own take - but the most famous of the Swizzles is, without a doubt, found at the Swizzle Inn. More on the Swizzle later.
There has been a buzz among Bermuda food lovers since May 27th 2015, when Chef Marcus Samuelsson’s restaurant, Marcus', opened at the Hamilton Princess and Beach Club. Based on our recent Marcus’ experience, the buzz is sure NOT to quiet down anytime soon. To sum up our visit quite simply: from now on, this is the only food we want to eat.
