Posted by & filed under food, travel.

Mount Gay Rum is a staple in the rum shacks around the island. We got a tour through the sugar cane fields, and I even got to harvest some myself and eat it fresh!

You might know I’m the Food Editor at LAist, but did you know that our parent site just launched Gothamist Getaways? I’m contributing all sorts of culinary travel stories to the site, including my new column called The Traveler’s Dishlist.

In all my globetrotting, I found that there was a real lack of one definitive resource to see what the absolute must-trys are in a region. Enter The Dishlist. The whole idea of the column is to tell you what the top 5 local dishes are for a given region, how to say it like a native when necessary, and where to find the best. To kick it off, we’re starting with the ultimate snowbird location, Barbados.

You can read the full story there.

Breakfast ramen Bang Bang w/@giovannireda @krismorningstar's @terrineLA teaser @ilanhall's @thegorbals. The sweet maple fried garlic with lime took it over the top & added awesome acid. Also fab: shrimp pancake topped w/ a perfect sunnyside egg. Avail on weekends 11-3.
Spot on chilaquiles for brunch this morning with @letmeeatcake @joshgoldman2 at @brilliantshine. The stunning rancho-style patio is perfect for day drinking & evening cocktailing in SaMo. And the food is darn good too! Can't wait to go back for dinner.
Repost from @ilanhall @knifefightesq. Miss out on any of the scrumptious eats from this week's four-way Mexican standoff?

@zoenathanloeb's amazing @huckcafe was one of the first pieces I wrote on food in LA, and my excitement for her work hasn't tapered one bit with the release of her incredible Huckleberry cookbook. Find an interview with Zoe + a recipe for bacon cheddar muffins at the link in my profile! Bonus: the cookbook was shot by the fabulous @mattarmendariz. Match made in pastry heaven? I think so!
Ooh lala! Creamy avocado dip (w silken tofu for protein) and creole sweet tater fries. Recipe in my profile. It's one of my fave #vegan #vegetarian #eatclean dishes!
Tune in tonight to see two LA faves @BizarraCapital and Chichen Itza throw down in a battle of calves' liver and cactus on @knifefightesq! Bring on the nopales!
I picked some pink peppercorns in a vineyard, and then  @sonyamasinovsky made 'em look all painterly and purdylike in this gorgeous wooden bowl. Can't wait to show you what we made with them!
Shakshouka in a skillet: it's what Saturday mornings are made for.
Celebrating the harvest with the team from @Tastemade. No filter needed in wine country this time of year. It's just too gorgeous as is!
Spanish tuna nicoise on top,  chicken cobb on the bottom, and a Hot Lei (coconut water, pineapple, lemon, honey, cayenne) to finish. Boom!
Bento and I bid you a very restful holiday weekend.
Maple glazed heirloom carrots and radishes for a late lunch here at Casita de Krista. Now, time for yoga!
Totally in love with @MatteisTavern Asian-inspired grilled avocado with fresh wasabi and ponzu. Perfect for Labor Day Weekend #grilling! Recipe link in my profile.
My #CurrentObsession: the wacky and whimsical food "vehicles" @Barton_G_LA...and the redonkulously good churros with Chinese 5 spice hot cocoa that come in them! Link to story in my profile.
#LunchAlDesko: kale salad with seared bison, Saint Agur blue, raisins, radishes, and red grapes. Finished with @jacobsensaltco for good measure:-) Cc @bonappetitmag.
Happy #NationalDogDay to the most regal Shiba in all the land and my bestest of friends, Mr. Bento Beans.
Behold, the coffee cake of your dreams @republiqueLA -- moist and fluffy as can be, topped with ripe CA figs and *just* the right crumble. Thanks for saving me a slice, @letmeeatcake!
As far as Monday evenings go, this is pretttttty good. Really enjoying @zoenathanloeb's @huckcafe cookbook and quality time with Bento. Polka dot pages FTW!
Flat white and a macchiato @handlebarcoffee with @mkretovics before heading home. Ahhh, why must weekends END? 🍷☕️🌿💃☀️
Morning run through the vineyards, the smell of ripe grapes and wet earth in the air. Harvest really is the best time of the year! Great way to kick off @melissamachat's bday weekend in Santa Inez!
