Let me introduce myself.
I am Helmi. I have a passion for cooking, traveling and photography.
Originally from Holland, I now live on the beautiful island Curacao in the Caribbean. When I arrived here 15 years ago, I started working as a lawyer. Soon however, I picked up my pots and pans and started a catering business.
Every dish that we serve is homemade with fresh ingredients. Initially we mainly served Mediterranean dishes, but over the years my palate became more and more induced by the bright Caribbean flavors. Gradually, we started developing our own recipes with a modern Caribbean twist.
Today the Caribbean cuisine is still very traditional. Most recipes are passed on from generation to generation. This is where I would like to make a change. The area has so many flavorful spices, delicious fruits, healthy vegetables and fresh fish, with lots of possibilities.
I am going to explore the Caribbean and develop new and tasty recipes with everything good the region has to offer. This blog is a journal of my tasting tour.
Follow me and get inspired!
