'Kitt & Caboodle' Food and Travel Magazine

'Kitt & Caboodle' - Gourmet Traveller feature for Food and Travel magazine. Judy Bastyra and I are back in the Caribbean! This time its the beautiful island of St Kitts, with dible golf courses, abandoned sugar plantations and old colonial charm. What's not to like?

Great food is never far away in St Kitts - an island whose cuisine is at the core of its reinvention, a decade after the sugar factories closed for good. Today, rum, reggae and dining by the beach are drawing the crowds...
