Simma Soupery & Bakery is the brainchild of Dean Kirkland. As a lover of good hearty Jamaican soups and a maker of same, he realised that the overall ability to get a variety of soups was lacking on the Kingston food scene. The regular choice was always red peas and chicken, and a few others by chance. Simma hoped to provide a wide selection on a daily basis by serving seven freshly prepared soups, in order to give the consumer choices. Simma Soupery & Bakery opened its doors in August ...

Apéritifs & Digestifs — What’s the difference?

Thursday, April 20, 2017

After enjoying several very long lunches and slow late dinners, I am reminded why I prefer the relaxed European way of dining to the hurried style that some of my friends subscribe to. Easter holidays in Europe proved to be emotional, educational, exciting and delicious. Our first meal in Paris was a two-hour lunch which began with an Apéritifs and ended with a digestif (aperitivo and digestivo in Italian). One of the interesting things about visiting this region is the culture of ... Read More
