New website for Caribbean Spice Caterers – mmmmm good!

Shameless plug for Kim Clarke & Caribbean Spice Caterers

When we heard from a friend that Caribbean Spice Caterers had a new website up we knew we’d have to let everyone know and include it in our banner rotation too.

We’ve been to two events catered by Caribbean Spice (one major and the other not so large) and the food and service were impressive enough that many folks at each event made it a point to ask for the name of the caterer. Without being too specific, it was interesting that the two parties were at opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of numbers, budgets and guest expectations but everyone at both events came away absolutely raving about the food.

And the food is special. Kim calls her creations a “fusion” of various island traditions but everyone else just says “I think I’ll have some more, please.”

Give Caribbean Spice Caterers a call and tell them Marcus at BFP recommended them. Kim hasn’t a clue who we are but that’s another story!

Presumably, Mr. Gittens refers to whatever diagnosis, or diagnoses, may have been made of the PM’s medical condition.   I respectfully dissent for the following reasons. Continue reading
