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