Huffington Post Miami Column: Slow Food in the Cayman Islands

Michael is now contributing to Huffington Post’s new Miami site!  He began yesterday with a story about the slow food movement taking hold in the Caribbean on the occasion of next week’s Culinary Month kickoff event, the Cayman Cookout. This annual celebration of food and drink is hosted by Eric Ripert each second week of January and attracts world-renowned chefs and authors such as Jose Andres and Anthony Bourdain, and this year adds guests including April Bloomfield and Richard Blais.  Michael reflects on this, his third year of participation, how slow food has taken root on-island, and our all-new event, Slow Food Day with chef Jonathan Waxman on 2/4.  Click @SlowFoodUSA’s tweet below to read it, and stay tuned for our Cayman correspondence from the rock next week!  When we arrive on 1/9, we will dive into shooting our first season of Genuine Cayman (the lionfish and farm eggs episodes) and then get hot and heavy with the Cookout, hosting April Bloomfield for a dinner on Saturday (1/14) night.  Here is that menu, fresh off the presses, and a link to purchase the few tickets that are left. If you’re still not sure if this is your cup of tea, please check out my coverage of last year’s event for Eater Miami (which I will be repeating this year.)
