A Postcard from Grenada

Grenada

Grenada

I can’t quite believe that my week on this beautiful Caribbean island is coming to an end, but it is. It has been quite the non-stop adventure. I am busier here than I am in London, simply because there is so much that I want to see, and taste.

Lets start with an overview, and I will be back with more details and videos soon. More photos too, as this is really just the very tip of what I have taken.

I like food. I like to make food. Eat food. Photograph food. Write about food. Mainly in London but when I am lucky or organised further afield.

  1. Interesting shots of the fish market… It looks as though wherever you are in the world they are the place to be to see life in action and of course to pick up great food!

  2. Looks amazing – great that you got to actually visit forests. Reminds me of all the fresh spices I discovered in Southern India. Bty, there’s a trader in Borough ‘De La Grenade’ who sells some great products from that island – vanilla, nutmeg, guava – just in case you run out!

    • I literally have been non stop and am pretty tired! Next trip I am building in relaxation time :) I am visiting De La Grenade today as it happens. I have already got their nutmeg syrup and jam in my suitcase.

  3. Beautiful pictures as ever. Don’t think I’d ever want to leave if I visited, such variety!

  4. I was there on my honeymoon about 16 years ago and loved it, the food market, the locals, the weather, lucky you, enjoy the last few days….

  5. How lovely! Looks very much like Jamaica, but that’s not surprising. Those land crabs scare the crap out of me in the wild. Did you see one come out of its hole? My cousins and I used to throw food at the entrance of one and then scream like crazy when it scuttled out. Weirdly, Jamaicans don’t seem to eat them that much? My relations didn’t anyway.

    • Love the land crabs, there were hundreds scuttling outside my hotel :) Might have reacted differently as a kid though! Tried to video them but not sure how successful I was. They eat them here a lot. Apparently all over the Caribbean too!

  6. thanks for the photos. Fantastic. Pretty different from BC Canada, right? We’re in Mysore, south India for 3 months right now. Lots of dosas : )
