TGIF to More Good Eats from Kingston Kitchen!

TGIF Suga Bears! I hope you had a great Emancipation Day!

I told you to stay tuned this week for more Suga highlights from Kingston Kitchen held last Saturday at Hope Gardens!

I am enthusiastic to report that the Grilled Cheese Sandwiches from Outland Hurders Creamery and Farmstead did not disappoint! There was a small change in plans from the raspberry recipe, but the locally made artisan cheeses used, Jamaican Jack and the 2-week old Crescenza were so rich. #realrich. The Cheeses were the highlight of the sandwiches as they should be, whether it was a classic Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Sweet with Caramelized Onions or a little spicy with Cilantro. Well done Outland Hurders from Manchester!

Chris and Lisa Binns in action from Stush in the Bush at Kingston Kitchen last Saturday, July 27, 2019.

It was no surprise that Stush in the Bush were a hit for persons looking for a healthy option to indulge or just consistently tasty gourmet delights. They served up a wide range of options, including their Condiments made with Love and Affection, but their Fyah Grilled Pizzas, Vegan Parmesan and  scrumptious Beignets with Chocolate Sauce Passion curd were popular amongst patrons.

Dream Bowls Ja were a hit as expected and so were the sweet treats from Kup Up Kreations!

Nice Cream, a hit at Kingston Kitchen for their 2nd year!

The young ladies from Nice Cream did well recruiting patrons to taste their non-dairy Ice cream that was still so flavourful!

I am sure patrons enjoyed much more, but taking menus into consideration, feedback from Suga Tasters and my picks that did not disappoint, those were the highlights folks! If you missed the highlights from Tuesday’s thowback, check it out. How could I forget the Churros from Fromage!

Kudos again to Leisha Wong, Melanie Miller and Jacqui Sinclair for a job well done, showcasing our impressive, thriving Jamaican culinary scene and diversifying our palates.

Until next year!
