Us lucky bunnies are out in Barbados for New Year (yippee!) and after a rather heavy first night we decided to head down to Paynes Bay to pick up some oh so fresh fish from the beachside market. The catch of the day has literally just come in off the boat and the ladies behind the counter skilfully slice up the most incredible fish – local flying fish, tuna and our picks of the day: barracuda and mahi mahi. We quickly made friends with a local friendly face who gave us some very good advice: always make time for each other, and his wise words: “you can’t take your money with you so just spend it” should lead to some excellent New Year’s resolutions. We headed back to the villa and handed over our purchases to our fantastic chef Paul, who worked his magic with herbs and spices before serving the most delicious blackened mahi mahi with a super fresh salad and icy cold rosé. A very nice end to 2014.
As the last post of 2014, I want to wish everyone who reads The Style Memo a very happy New Year! I am SO touched and grateful for all the support I have received this year and I can’t wait for more fun and games in 2015!
