Headed to Taste T&T 2008!

Taste T&T 2008Lilandra and I are headed to Taste T&T 2008 this evening. It’s the closing day of the main festival, although there is to be a restaurant week immediately following.

This was a completely unexpected trip to T&T – I only realised I could be here on Wednesday, so unlike the Trini Gourmet, I don’t have any fancy scans of gourmet tickets…We plan to head there in time for free entry and then scout for tickets and enjoyment.

I hope there are enough veggie or seafood alternatives, and local food of course. You can read my review from last year’s Taste, which was a great night out, especially since I got to meet the Trini Gourmet herself 😀 I am not going to prejudge this year’s event, but I do have to say from the outset that since my excited post in March, I cannot recall reading or seeing much about the Taste online. I wonder then, if this is a plan to draw in tourists to come specifically for the event, how was that going to work. I will admit, that I could be at fault in having missed the campaign, but the truth is – this is how I keep up with home, online, so something must have been missing. I didn’t even read about the Pot Spoon Throwdown until after the fact; did I miss the reports? The fanfare?

But onto the present!! In a few hours, we head to Port of Spain to taste, meet and greet, lime, take pictures and notes in our heads!

  2. Although chefs seem to busy people, I am sure at some point in your career a visit to T&T for professional reasons must be in the future. 😀 Other than that we’ll have to move from down here up to Spain.
