Swaying palm trees, gentle breezes, and the sweet smell of tropical fruits and flowers all evoke that island feel. Pretend you're in a chaise lounge out on the veranda, sipping something with an umbrella in it. Break out the Bata and Bongos and enjoy some great food inspired by the warming relationship between Cuba and the U.S. Chef Steven will show the way with this outstanding menu that starts and finishes with a mojito kick. Read on....
Mojitos - a drink that originated in Cuba many years ago, enjoying a renewed popularity in the U.S., fruity sour limes, sweet, fresh mint, and a little rum (of course!)
Sweet Potato Cakes - Savory & spectacular featuring lime, cilantro and scallions served with a tamed calaloo sauce. Yah, mon!
Island Grilled Lamb Chops - marinated in a citrus soak, scented with a hint of oregano, then grilled to perfection and served with chopped peppers, onions, and garlic with olive oil.
Grilled Turkey Breast with a Peachy Tomatillo Salsa - We're betting you've never grilled a turkey breast before. We'll give it a quick marinade, grill it, and serve it with a great tomatillo-based sauce with the sweetness of peaches.
Drunken Pineapple - soaked in rum, season & grilled, the perfect accompaniment to the turkey.
Mojito Ice Cream - served with a crispy coconut tuile and a sprig of fresh mint. I think I'm in love.
