Our Inspiration

OUR history

Former British Colony: A melting pot of African & European Traditions

As a former British colony, our colonial past has helped to shape our culinary customs. An island favourite is our Fruitcake. Quite contrary to the mass-produced fruit speckled ring cakes sold in American supermarkets... Our traditional fruit cake is a dark, medium bodied cake stuffed full of dried fruits such as raisins, currants, prunes, citrus fruit peels and cherries which are generously soaked in rum to revitalize them before being added to the batter. Tradition has it that the longer you soak your fruits, the better your cake will taste! In years gone by, molasses from our local sugar factory was used to give these cakes their dark colour and rich flavour.  

Our culture

King Sugar, Cassava Bread & Sugar Cakes

Growing up as a child in St. Kitts, the first British colony to be established in the West Indies, there was always a reason to celebrate. And as all Kittitians know, festivities equal food galore! Puddings, Cakes, Parched Peanuts and Sugar Cakes (a cane sugar-laden, Caribbean styled variation of a Coconut Macaroon to the untrained eye) were always available at the local markets, football games and other community activities. It didn't take long for me to 'try me hand' at making these delicious treats at home! I can still remember grating mounds of fresh coconut and putting it to simmer in a simple syrup until it 'boil een' and became sticky enough to drop into mini mountains, only to be flattened with a spoon and left to cool. Yum! Sugar cakes!

Our food & art

Breadfruit Flour, Masquerades & Jaw-bone Breakers

Island life on St. Kitts and Nevis is both vibrant and colourful. I use the energy and inspiration from daily activities to develop new recipes, flavour profiles, dessert themes and even cupcake names! The masqueraders in all their splendor, the magnificent Brimstone Hill Fortress and the Black Rocks volcanic formations are only a few of the historic elements that assist me in recreating old desserts in new ways. Look out for our gluten free dessert collection using locally produced Breadfruit Flour and try our Masquerade Cupcakes! I'm always looking for new ways to showcase island favourites!
