The Bahamas Weekly's new food columnist, Maurisa Glinton will bring you "Chew on This!" starting this coming week.

The Bahamas Weekly is pleased to offer you another interesting column!

Chew on This! by Maurisa Glinton will commence over the next week and we are please to have her on board. Ms Glinton was the winner of Chef Noel at Festival Noel in 2009.

Maurisa hopes to bring you confidence in experimenting with different foods.  She hopes to share recipes and techniques that can empower you to think of cooking as more than a chore, and instead entice you to embrace and enjoy it.  From everyday recipes, to those meant to impress; from party ideas, to wine pairings, Maurisa wants to make food as approachable, fun and exciting to her readers as it is to her.

Maurisa Glinton was born in Freeport, Grand Bahama in 1981. She is a vibrant out-going young lady with a passion for life and all that it has to offer. Maurisa is an entrepreneur with a passion for food and food culture which she loves to share with those around her, and who loves doing community outreach, especially when it comes to working with the youth.

She began her education at St. Paul’s Methodist College, but left at the age of 12, to attend Boarding school in Massachusetts and Connecticut in The United States of America. She went on to study at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, where she received her B.A. in Psychology as well as Writing. After college Maurisa returned to home to The Bahamas. She began working for the Ministry of Education, where she served as Guidance Counselor for both Lewis Yard Primary and The Beacon Schools for three years.

Maurisa was always a traveling spirit and along the way she picked up an appreciation for foreign cuisines, delicacies, food culture and fine dining. While Maurisa loved her work as a Guidance Counselor, she just couldn’t deny her passion for food. It was this love for food and fine dining that prompted her back to school yet again, this time in New York City at The Institute of Culinary Education where she received her Diplomas in both Culinary Arts and Culinary Management. Upon completion, she worked briefly in New York City, in a well-known fine dining restaurant. Soon after, she returned home where she opened her own Catering business, Social Butterfly Catering Services.

However, her past degrees have not gone to waste as she finds her training in Psychology useful every time that she meets with clients or vendors, and her writing has stayed with her all the while. Maurisa has been writing her own Food Blog, called Chez Mo Truth, for the past three years. She looks forward to sharing her passion and knowledge about food with her new readers, and cannot wait to discuss ingredients, food and cocktail recipes and all the other seemingly mysterious oddities the culinary world has to offer. Maurisa loves to travel and hopes to spend some time traveling and eating her way through Europe in the near future, but in the meantime she currently resides, and is eating her way through Nassau.
