Private Chef - Caribbean Surf and Turf

Savor the bright flavors of the Caribbean with this personalized meal crafted by Chef Jamila.

Tropical produce and fresh fish are the stars in this Caribbean-inspired surf and turf menu. Start with local avocado salad on a crostini — a tropical take on bruschetta. Next, tender braised short rib in a rich red wine sauce along with creamy coconut rice and field peas, and crispy local snapper escovitch, highlighted by spicy scotch bonnet peppers and vegetables. Dessert is a true taste of the tropics: Passion fruit crema.

Guests are welcome to provide wine and beer to accompany the menu, and may request pairing recommendations from the chef upon booking.

Chef Jamila showed me how to make a simple bruschetta with beef tomato, balsamic, red onion, sourdough bread toasted in olive oil and basil. She gave some good advice about reducing the bite of the onions - add some vinegar or soak it in water for a few minutes. Gave some good information about all of the ingredients!
