Beer is a pretty important thing. After all, as Frank Zappa once said
“You can’t be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline - it
helps if you have some kind of football team, or some nuclear weapons,
but in the very least you need a beer.”
Stepping into Bella Roma, the new Italian eatery in Buckingham Square,
is a bit like falling down the rabbit hole and emerging in a charming
Italian village shop where the very best cheeses, cured meats and
freshly baked breads you could wish for are made following
The name Kurt Tibbetts needs little introduction in Cayman. Also known as former Leader of Government Business, former leader of the opposition, he can now add a new, but much less political, title to that long and illustrious list - executive chef.
Let’s be honest; as much as we would all like to spend our lunch hour enjoying a beautifully prepared and presented lunch, maybe with a glass of wine, at a beautiful oceanfront location, those lunches are the exception, not the rule.

your experience of the place is very different to a visitor’s. But occasionally
it’s refreshing to change your perspective and briefly step into the
Brunch a Cayman tradition. According to the song, only “mad dogs and
Englishmen go out in the midday sun”.
Bars up and down the Seven Mile Strip boast about their location, yet few, if any, of them can match Eastern Star Bar and Lounge out in East End.
What is it about the coconut? The green, yellow or brown nut is the ultimate symbol of paradise. Just saying the word ‘coconut’ can alter an Eskimo’s ponder from glaciers to beaches.

When it comes to sticking to a diet, a couple of problems tend to arise.

rather eaten the box it came in.
Lunchtime can be a fuss of freneticism where the last thing anyone
thinks about is flavour. Sustenance is the keyword, with a quick stop
off at a fast food joint or snatched sandwich at the desk often the only
nod toward a vital meal.
It’s all you’ll keep talking about. You’ll start laughing when you think about it. It’s what’s on your mind.
Tuck in to Tukka

If you get peckish in the middle of the day, keep your appetite in check until you get to Tukka in East End.

winter months. This holiday season, you can save time and avoid chaos in

series of ‘harvest dinners’ in January.

the Cayman cooking pot remains a mystery. So why not put away those
