The Rum Collective: Competition Rum Bahamas 2015: The Meals

Paul “Rhum Chef” Yellin

Competition Rum Bahamas provided a menu that includes native delicacies, served up recent with compliments by a pair world famend cooks. It isn’t simple (or correct) to speak native or genuine Caribbean cooking with out speaking about Rum. Every nation has their very own variation on a theme and from Bahamas to Barbados, rum is a part of the social material that units the desk. Attempt speaking French delicacies with out cheese or Indian with out mentioning a spice. Critically, it is simply flawed and plus, the considered no rum? Yeah, let’s not go there… One factor is for certain, those that breached the partitions of Fort Charlotte had been in for a king’s feast with a view! Our final article, “All The Rum, showcased the liquid highlights within the Competition that could be a celebration of Rum, Meals and Tradition. This text, the second of our three half collection, sharpens the deal with Meals. Separate them I strive, however the traces of distinction usually blur properly, notably after a couple of tasty rums, so I make no apologies for any ‘off subject’ images alongside the best way. Seize your glass, lick your lips and revel in!

Paul Yellin, one of many cooks, is Bajan, skilled and proficient. In case you had been fortunate sufficient to discover a seat on the two rum & meals seminars he gave on the Competition, every little thing else would have appeared like bonus. I’ve visited Paul a number of instances now and every time we meet, I’m extra impressed; partly by his down-to-Earth nature, however largely by how magical the hand-to-mouth expertise is when the meals is served shortly thereafter!

Girls and gents, this was however one of many rum and meals pairing seminars to attend and I have never even began on the meals cubicles all through the Fort!

Nicely, if one rum & meals seminar wasn’t sufficient superior, there was one other fabulous pairing provided, which one might merely sit in on. No registration, no traces, simply seize a seat. I stress this, as these meals & rum pairing seminars had been free to anybody, included in your admission value. Seating was key, not surprisingly, for when Chef Geoffrey Blythe and Carlton Grooms (Director at Papa’s Pilar, co-founder of Worldwide Rum Council), the authors of the game-changing “Rum & Up to date Delicacies” took the stage atop Fort Charlotte, no seat was left unfilled. The truth is, many merely stood to pay attention and look out for extras samples!

An ideal ambiance for listening to a world-class chef and rum connoisseur/producer speak about what they love, while sipping rum and tasting their connoisseur rum-focused delicacies. A lightweight breeze caressed our backs underneath shade in 80 F levels (27 C) warmth.
