Hobby for the Hump – A BVI Taste Cookbook Recipe from Foxy’s Chef David Chinnery in Jost Van Dyke

To many residents, September is like a month-long hump day. October when heavy tourism returns, businesses reopen, and community activity lives again is just around the corner, but to reach that high season of fun and frolics, a drought is endured.

A lot of people opt to travel, curing their island-fever, but if you’re staying, here is a suggestion for something progressive, productive and entertaining.

Why not learn to cook?

If you are an avid cook already, improving the skill never hurts, but by cook, I don’t mean bacon and eggs or a steak dinner. I’m proposing the idea of gourmet dishes that look like a work of art and taste even better. I’m talking about the cuisine that exclusive villa rentals like Baraka Point and establishments YCCS and Peter Island serve for a patronage enjoying the luxurious high-life of the British Virgin Islands.

Such premium recipes can be found in aLookingGlass’s Taste publication – a collection of top BVI restaurants and their chefs, showcasing their most popular courses.

For now, here is a sample recipe renowned for its extreme popularity at Jost Van Dyke’s Foxy’s and a strong reason for encouraging repeat visitors.
