Ten of us gathered for a late afternoon brunch at a friend’s house in West Bay, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands. Brunch is a BIG thing on the island and it’s the day most people look forward to. Some head out to expensive and posh hotels to drink expensive champagne which has been spoiled with orange juice. And others … like the Italians, meet with friends, inside their homes.
We sip beautiful earthy reds from the Mediterranean mountains of Sardinia and dine on locally, fresh caught Cayman lobster. This is where the Mediterranean meets the Caribbean.
Life is pretty exceptional when you mix two worlds.
What are your Sunday traditions?
Red wine and lobster? Perfect!! 😉
Reminds me of a good Cape tradition… pinotage and crayfish!! That’s Cape, South Africa… 😛
Oh yes, it was delish!! 😉 I’ve never eaten fish and drank white wine, I detest white wine!
Temptation complete and utter!
What could be better than combining two beautiful places and their wine and seafood! Looks great!
Brunch in Canada: Panedda cheese, Pita bread, Cannonau e per digestivo, MIRTO!!!!!
Sounds like a super Sardinian brunch if I’ve ever heard!
Looks fabulous. We venture out for brunch here occasionally but nothing beats a fresh bagel, a chai latte and the New York Times 😉 However I could definitely get used to brunching in the Cayman Islands 😉
It doesn’t matter what mine are I like yours better 🙂
