Who doesn't love love? Who doesn't love
food?! That's why combining the two made for the perfect backdrop to
this year's Valentine's Day celebrations. Local food TV show
A Mouth Full used
the day of love to kick off Amor Alimentos, a series of foodie events
which will help Bahamians to indulge in their love of food!
The first installment
Amor Alimentos: Indulge Your Food Love,
was held at the 1 ER CRU Courtyard at Bristol Wines and Spirits on
Valentine's Day. Foodie lovers from all over the island were treated to
beautiful decor, sweet music by DJ Pressure and the Tingum Dem Band, an
international cheese board and live carving station and food that had
the guests cheering. Amor Alimentos private chef, Chef Wayne Moncur
whipped up a tapas style tasting menu that left tongues wagging and gave
attendees, "major food-gasms," according to one foodie who gushed at
the taste of each dish.
guests feasted on chicken burrito with smoked mayonnaise, shrimp cotton
candy, 6-hour braised beef short ribs with mushroom and thyme risotto
balls, conch mac and cheese and for dessert, a hearty bowl of chocolate
textures. As this event was all about the food, the dishes were brought
out one by one, delicately described and explained and served to the
excited foodies. Each receiving rave reviews at the end!
artist Allan Wallace was also on hand and painted a beautiful portrait.
The piece was raffled off with proceeds going to the Sister sister
Breast Cancer Support Group.
Alimentos, the foodie event series is just getting started so look out
for new dates so you too can be treated to some delicious fun!
