There’s a delightful program planned for Monday, November 9, 2015 featuring speakers who will tell us about Handmade Bahamian chocolates and American made wines.
Amanda Ormerod, co-owner of Bootleg Chocolates—a family owned company crafting fine handmade premium confections with flavors and ingredients inspired by the islands—will talk with us about the spirit of good taste, fond memories, and adventure that are at the heart and soul of Bootleg Chocolates. (click on the company name to see their website; they have also just opened a new coffee & chocolate shop at Port Lucaya Marketplace!)
Rebecca Tibbitts, Sommelier at Flying Fish Restaurant, will also join us to share her knowledge about American-made wines and food pairings. The Bahamas’ only female Certified Sommelier, Rebecca and her husband, Chef Tim Tibbitts, operate the first restaurant in Grand Bahama to be awarded the AAA 4-Diamond rating, and have also been named one of the Top 10 Restaurants in the Caribbean by TripAdvisor.
