FEAST 18 – CARIBBEAN – SAT 11 AUGUST 2012
Tan Rosie are mother Monica and daughter Lee, who run a supper club from their home in Birmingham, and sell their Caribbean food products to the world.
The family hails from Carriacou in Grenada, also known as Spice Island, and they brought the warm flavours of nutmeg, cinnamon and clove to the Global Feast table last night, serving up red snapper with homemade bread rolls and citrusy salad, curry mutton with rice and peas and the most perfectly unctuous ginger cake ever.
It was Caribbean family cooking on a huge scale, putting us in the party mood in time for Andreas Grant’s amazing THISISNOTABAR club night, but not before Futerra’s Ed Gillespie had taken us for a tour of the globe, bringing the realities of climate change to life region by region, and Jesse Pie slunk through our contours, making geography sexy again.
