This week I flew from 80 degrees and sunny in Tulsa, to 35 degrees and windy in New York City. I wandered through a snowstorm in Manhattan, purchased a silk hat made in Tibet for $6, and slept 50% less than normal. I spent the week introducing myself to publishers all week: “Hello, I’m Sasha Martin. Let me tell you about a little dream of mine …”
After all that excitement (I can’t wait to tell you more), it was wonderful to end the week at my dear friend, Marina’s apartment in Brooklyn and eat this incredible meal typical in Saint Kitts & Nevis. Everything about it is soothing, comforting and… well, there’s rum glazed coconut bread pudding… need I say more?
P.S. That Killer Bees recipe? Marina found that one and she did an aces job.
All recipes and meal review will be available by Monday morning.
Rum Glazed Coconut Bread Pudding [Recipe]
Made with hot butter, rum, brown sugar, coconut milk, raisins, and … well, bread. This is the bees knees
Killer Bee Cocktail [Recipe]
Speaking of bees… watch out, friends. This drink is the most alluring combination of passion fruit, honey, and a tingle of black pepper and fresh, grated nutmeg.

A special word…
I’m proud to have Saffron Road as a partner, supporting our Adventure to eat the world. I love that we share similar values… just read what they have to say about the food they make:
We know that great food begins at the farm, so we source our ingredients from only the finest producers available. It’s no coincidence that we buy from small sustainably run family farms. All of our livestock are humanely raised with 100% vegetarian feed and are never given antibiotics. Our halal tradition demands their proper care and welfare.
