Chorlavi’s Pepper Jellies and Jams will be at GW Art’s Exhibition!

20190919_040616_0000.png

Come View, Sip, Taste and Shop GW Art’s Collection at The Jamaica Pegasus on Saturday, September 28th!

The event will feature Cheeses from Outland Hurders Creamery & Farmstead, Chorlavi’s Pepper Jellies and Jams and rich, bean to dark Chocolate from One One Cacao to complement the evening too!

Chorlavi’s by Nella Davis Stewart out of St. Ann, uses less sugar and more local organic fruit, herbs and vegetables to create a tasty variety of Pepper Jellies and Jams. No preservatives and no additives.

Nella used to be a caterer, so can demonstrate how well her Jams and Jellies pair with meats.

Where did she get the name Chorlavi’s?

Nella went to eat at Haciendo Chorlavi, a hotel in the hills of Ecuador about 20 years ago. They have a love story similar to Lover’s Leap in Jamaica and she fell in love with the place.

When Nella went to register her business’s name as Gems, in honour of her mother, the name was aready taken. So she went with Chorlavi’s!

What’s Suga’s fave from Chorlavi’s?

I love the Pineapple, Mango and Carambola Pepper Jellies. They were balanced in terms of tasting the fruit, the spicy and the sweet.

I love the Otaheite Jam too.

What will Chorlavi’s have at GW Art’s Collection?

Chorlavi’s has such a range of Jams and Jellies, I can just give you a preview!

TGIF to Absolutely Scrumptious Donuts from Tea Thyme!

Filled Doughnuts from Tea Thyme ($450JMD each)

TGIF to Tea Thyme’s scrumptious Donuts! Some of you may recognize them from Kingston Night Market, but these sugary treats are now available at The Butcher Block in Manor Park on Saturdays.

Suga loves sugar-filled donuts 😉. I had pre-ordered the Salted Caramel – and Vanilla Cream – filled Donuts after my failed opportunity to purchase the Saturday before. As usual, it did NOT disappoint. I enjoyed the taste, but most of all, the texture. Soft on the outside and fluffy and airy on the inside. Perfection.

The White Chocolate and rose glaze with crushed pistachio is another fave.

‘DONUT’ hesitate to go late or pre-order. You have to stay tuned to Tea Thyme’s and The Butcher Block’s Instagram pages (@hey_its_teathyme / @thebutcherblockja) or communicate with them. They usually arrive at 10:30am/11:00am. They go so fast, The Butcher Block has been increasing their order each week!

Here is the MENU for tomorrow!

But here is a sneak peek of what to expect from Outland Hurders!

20190905_053016.png
Their *Jamaican Jack* is freckled with roasted pimentos and scotch bonnet peppers and is rubbed with an in-house jerk rub during the aging process.

It’s a bit spicy at first, but mellows out on the palate afterwards. It is reminiscent of jerk chicken with its slightly smoky flavour. The flavour profile is between mild and sharp, depending on age.

*Pairings*

Spirits: Appleton Rum or Tequila.

Wines: Medium bodied Reds or Ports or anything Bubbly.

Non-alcoholic: Sweet, tropical Fruit Juices, such as mango or citrus based Juices.

Food: Cured meats, Mango Chutney, Berry Jams, Smoked Meats or Paprika dusted Popcorn.
