I'll never get tired of traveling through the Caribbean, especially since Chicago has gifted us with snow in April. Besides the sun, I'm thrilled to be returning to San Juan and St. Croix to explore Caribbean cuisine at two popular food fests. In San Juan, I'll be visiting Saborea, a four-day festival of the island's culinary standouts as well as music and culture. In St. Croix, I'll be experiencing A Taste of St. Croix, an island wide culinary competition where I'll also serve as a guest judge! In between all the gorging, I'll also stroll the streets of Old San Juan shown above, and Caguas, to witness the distinct criollo culture. On my beloved St. Croix, pictured below, I'll revisit historic sites like the Whim Estate as well as a few rum distilleries. My San Juan trip is at the invitation of Puerto Rico Tourism and St. Croix ,the U.S. Virgin Island Tourism. Expect lots of tasty posts and pix coming soon!
