Nicole’s Table + Jonathan’s Shaker

Earlier this month I took a week-long trip to an idyllic Caribbean island.  The island I speak of is Antigua, home of 365 beaches (1 for every day of the year), Wadadli Beer, and English Harbour Rum.

Nicole Arthurton is a lovely young woman who teaches culinary classes from her home in the Cedar Valley section of Antigua.  We joined forces for a master class consisting of some of Nicole’s tasty appetizers, and some of my takes on classic Caribbean rum cocktails.

The students chopped, tossed, sliced, shook, and strained the evening away.  We used local ingredients (black pineapples, limes, kaffir lime leaves, passionfruits, mangos, etc.) and enjoyed the view from Nicole’s home.

My hope is that I can return early next year and hold several more of these classes.  Thank you to Nicole, Adam, and all of the students who attended!  You all did splendidly well!

Don’t believe me?  Check out the photos to prove it:
