Calling all sailors and Clipper Sailing Fans, you are cordially invited to the Mille Fleurs Restaurant, part of Jamaica’s No.1 Eco Boutique hotel Mocking Bird Hill for a sailing luncheon with a difference. Not only will you receive a cookery class on how to spice up those rows of tins in the galley that send Foodies stir crazy but a special daily Lightning Bolt Luncheon will be served in celebration of the Jamaican Clipper Boat named after Usain Bolt.
These sailor specials are timed to coincide with the arrival of the Clipper Round the World Race that will be moored at the Errol Flynn Marina in Port Antonio Jamaica from the 16th-22nd May 2010.
The cookery course will use tins that are readily available at supermarkets as the teams stock up for their final leg back to the UK. Our intention is to prepare dishes that provide not just a healthy diet but one that is delicious too. Key ingredients that are looked at with fresh eyes to create memorable boat dinners include Butter Beans, Red Peas, Kidney Beans, Bammy, Sardines or Mackerel, Polenta & Corn Beef.
The menu for the luncheon will celebrate the very best in locally grown seasonal ingredients that quite literally burst with vitamins and the taste of the tropics, whilst cooking techniques highlight Jamaica’s flair as the fusion island of the Caribbean.
