I gave you a little heads-up in Wednesday’s post but now full details are available for the next Nothing to Chew in Bermuda dinner event on Saturday, May 11th at 7.30pm! Food and wine pairings can be a lot of fun but this is a little twist on that tried-and-tested concept as I’m hosting an awesome Tapas Feast and Cocktail Pairing at Margarita’s Grill. The mouthwatering menu for the night will include a Lemongrass Fish Lollipop with Thai-style Sweet Chilli Sauce paired with a Classic Margarita, Saffron Risotto topped with Bottarga Shavings paired with a White Mango Sangria, Lime-marinated Bermuda Wahoo Taco with pickled cabbage, sour cream and guacamole paired with an Orange Patron “Ananas”, Bermuda Tuna Norimaki inside out with Shredded Crab Meat paired with a Watermelon Mojito, Serrano BBQ Pulled Pork on cone Siracha Chilli Pepper paired with a Balsamic Bufala Negra, oven-baked Beetroot Gnocchi with Walnut and Gorgonzola Sauce paired with a Sour Apple Martini and, of course, dessert which is a Dark, Milk and White Chocolate Mousse with chocolate twist paired with a Double Espresso Martini. Each cocktail is around 1oz, with the exception of the sangria, so it’s enough to get a good taste of it without having to worry about being a drunken mess before dinner is over. You’ll receive explanations of why the combinations were paired as well as a tasting sheet to make notes and scores. There is no need to rush away after dinner as a DJ will be playing your favourite Top 40 hits, so why not stay and have another few glasses of your new favourite cocktail? The price of all of this is a bargainous $80, which will include all food, cocktails, and grats. As before, a portion of the proceeds of this event will be going to benefit New Beginnings Education Trust – a great new charity which gives young Bermudians access to education and professional development. Tickets are available online at www.pTix.bm and will be on sale until Thursday, May 9th, or until the event sells out, whichever happens first. For special dietary requirements or any other questions, please contact me at info@BermudaEvents.com. Here is the link to the event on Facebook.


Angelo's Bistro Early Bird Menu

Angelo’s Bistro in the Walker Arcade have started running a special Early Bird menu from 6pm until 7.30pm, Monday to Saturday.  The cost is $35 per person for three courses and includes favourites such as calamari, gnocchi, crepes, meatballs and pork loin.  For reservations, call 232-1000.
