May: Best of Bitter End

North Soundings is back! Each month we're highlighting the best of Bitter End, plus introducing new ways to capture the Caribbean spirit at home. 

 What we're reading: An Embarrassment of Mangoes

A Caribbean Interlude... Across 7,000 nautical miles and 47 islands. They sip rum with their neighbours and dance through the streets during Carnival, explore secluded beaches, learn to pull their dinner from the sea and create delectable dishes in their tiny galley kitchen. Interspersed with irresistible recipes, from cracked conch in the Bahamas, curried lobster in Grenada, spicy island gingerbread to West Indian rum punch, AN EMBARRASSMENT OF MANGOES is the enticing story of discovering not just vibrant new cultures and cuisines, but what really matters.
