Summer Fair Fun

/ Whats on Jamaica

HMH Summer Fair

Our August Artisan fair proved to be a fun day for all, with visitors coming from as far as Kingston to sample the delights of the very best of the hotel’s 12 artisan suppliers.  There was a wealth of variety on offer, from jewellery to goat’s cheese to pottery and handmade paper and much more in-between.  It was a chance to not just share tips from our producers but to make actual sales, which  each stallholder did; a great confidence boaster in the current economic climate!

As the day was a little mixed weather-wise, we decided to hold the fair itself on the bar terrace, we are hoping our Christmas Fair will enjoy all the benefits of the dry season and be in the gardens themselves.  Choices from our delicious fusion buffet luncheon included:

Gazpacho| Wild Hook & Sweet Potato Soup |Bruschetta with Herb Goat Cheese

Jamaican-style Roast Fish | Jerk Chicken, Pork and Pineapple Kebabs| Tofu and Vegetable Kebabs| Callaloo and Goat Cheese Quiche

Spiced Corn-on-the-Cob with Lemon Cilantro Butter | Tropical Coleslaw, Breadfruit Salad | Two Potato and Bean Salad

Carrot Cake with Coconut Icing |  Pineapple Bread Pudding with Rum Butter | Orange Cheese Cake |  Homemade Ice-cream with Fresh Fruit Salad

Here’s  just some of the comments from the day:

“Lovely! Nice atmosphere and wonderful products, it was so good to be introduced to these artisan producers, we should do this more often to support them”

“The Fair was great, I am sure it would do well in December”

“Success is the first word that comes to mind when reflecting on our stall at HMH, as well as the taste of that welcoming glass of cool lemonade”
