Kudos to The Pub Bar and Grill for giving Masks, Funds and other items to Persons on the road in need.

As we begin to think of going back to the office to work, going outside or how long we will need to wear masks, please remember those that aren’t able to source their own masks. A good deed no matter how small, goes a far way.

Suga’s Highlights from International Women’s Day at CWC’s Wine Pairing SoirĂ©e

20200310_035750

Sunday’s cool, breezy afternoon was perfect for savoury bites and bubbly to celebrate International Women’s Day and contribute to the Canadian Women’s Club of Jamaica’s outreach projects.

Harbour Wines and Spirits and Select Brands provided ideal pairings for offerings from EITS CafĂ©, Tea Tree Creperie, Raffaele’s Gourmet Pizzeria, Fromage, Chez Maria, Uncorked, Cannonball CafĂ© and Chocolate Dreams.

Everything was delightful but of course there were a few standouts. 

EITS Café

Robyn Fox of EITS Café and her team for the day, along with a representative from Select Brands.

It’s always a pleasure to be around Robyn Fox and her hospitable team from EITS CafĂ©. Their Black Olive Bammy Bruschetta with Feta Cheese, Red Onion and Caramelized Onions was quite appetizing while paired with one of my fave’s, the Kung Fu Girl Riesling provided by Select Brands. Its apricot, white peach, honeysuckle aromas balanced out the sharpness of the Feta.

Fromage

20200310_050526

Fromage’s Oxtail Arancini Balls.

Fromage’s Oxtail Arancini Balls were divine with Harbour Wines’ MĂ©nage Ă  Trois Bourbon Barrel Cabernet Sauvignon. That wine was unforgettable from the Table Talk Observer Food Awards last year.

Then their Chèvre Canapés with fig glazed walnuts paired with Rosé was such a treat. The light, fluffy texture with the touch of sweet was perfection.

Chez Maria

Chez Maria’s Vegetarian Pumpkin Kibbeh Cups.

Chez Maria’s Vegetarian Pumpkin Kibbeh Cups with hummus on top was both healthy and scrumptious. The winner for seconds if watching your calories. They were paired with Select Brands’ Primal Roots California Red.

Guess who’s going into Catering? – Cannonball CafĂ©

Cannonball’s Antipasto Skewer with Lomo, Olive, Tomato, Mozzarella and Mushroom Tortelini was a myriad of flavours that balanced each other well and even further with Harbour Wines’ Columbia Crest Cabernet Sauvignon.

Chocolate Dreams

20200310_040746

Pistacio Chocolate Bites from Chocolate Dreams.

You have to top off the evening with some sweet! I didn’t mind the spicy either. Chocolate Dreams outdid themselves with their Scotch Bonnet Caramel Fudge and Pistacio Chocolate Bites. Their entire spread was worth the calories. If you like sweet wines, the Roscato Sweet Red courtesy of Harbour Wines was a great choice.

Great evening filled with Vino, Savoury bites and Beautiful Women. Value for money with Proceeds to a great cause. Well done Canadian Women’s Club of Jamaica. #SugaEndorsed
