SO nice to see Anguilla’s beloved Malliouhana hotel re-opened. We all missed the Grande Dame whilst closed, and am delighted to see it all looking so spectacular. I enjoyed dinner with friends on the weekend, and took my pics today, while we all enjoyed a fab lunch poolside.
For lunch, we all started with this amazing focaccia bread, beautifully seasoned, and served with rosemary olive oil. Hank had the house-made Italian fennel sausage pizza, and he generously offered me a slice. It was graciously accepted, and was absolutely superb. Crispy crust, and amazing flavours. Gail and I, on the other hand, enjoyed the Grilled mahi-mahi skewers, served with a mint yogurt, and served on a five grain salad. HELLO! ‘Twas a great afternoon…………….
Some paintings just leave me breathless for a minute, and this new Francis Eck work, translating to “Serenity at Night” is one of them. His style is working rich pure oil pigment with a palette knife, and this painting is an amazing sensual delight. I love the way the bands of colours at the horizon contrast so strongly with the black sky and white sea. What a gem……
CuisinArt Golf Resort and Spa has been very kind to Savannah Gallery over the last few years, and I’ve installed varying exhibitions of Haitian metal sculpture in their Santorini Restaurant, just off the lobby. I mixed it up a little this year, and decided to see how the lush oil paintings of Francis Eck would look, and am absolutely delighted. The installation brings the outside in, and Eck’s evocative work seems to be custom made for the space……
Gonzalo’s come and gone Nasty bit of business, but we’re mostly back up and running, and in good spirits to welcome a great season coming!
I was VERY pleased when I heard that chef Marc Alvarez was the new chef at The Pumphouse, down in Sandy Ground. His reputation for superb creations in his kitchen preceded him, and I was delighted tonight when his culinary choices for the menu lived up to that great rep. I started with 2 fabulous apps – Pumphoue Poutines ( you know I’m Canadian, eh?), served with mozzarella, braised oxtail and garlic aioli, and the Indian spiced beef skewers, served with a coconut sambal. Both were delicious. The poutines were light and fluffy little potato darlin’s. The skewers were fresh, moist, tender and SO flavourful. I could have stopped there, and been happy, but nooooooooooo, I had to continue on, and feast on this remarkable Conish Hen “Grilled under a brick”, served with fennel-golden apple slaw, white sweet potato latke and pomegranate. My host for the evening wanted the paella, but had a seafood allergy. Chef gladly specially prepared his paella with sausage and chicken. He loved every bite. It’s September on-Island right now – always very very quiet, and I was AMAZED to see this place absolutely full up. The restaurant was full, as was the bar, and many more arriving as we left. Kudos to Laurie, Deb, and Chef Marc and his team in the ktichen!
