TASTE OF BERMUDA LETS YOU EXPLORE BERMUDA’S CULINARY SIGHTS, FREE OF CHARGE. Sometimes you feel adventurous. You want to try something new, something fresh. You want to be the first one in your circle who can say, “I love that place,” “You really should try that sauce,” or “Their desserts are to die for.” Of course, nothing is worse than getting your hopes up for a promising meal that turns out to be an utter disappointment. Enter: Taste of Bermuda. Once a week, in the Cooperage Atrium in Royal Naval Dockyard, you can sample some of the local culinary delights, free of charge. Then, once you decide which tasty bites you liked best, you can head to The Bermuda Craft Market to buy what you sampled. There you also get the opportunity to ask vendors who make and sometimes grow these products questions or get suggestions for delicious recipes. “It is an opportunity, as the name suggests, to taste a little bit of Bermuda,” says Tim Rogers, who sits on the Board of Directors of The Bermuda Craft Market. “You can find food and beverages, everything from pepper jams and pepper sauces to rum cake, local beer and fish chowder.” Whilst it’s not a large event, you are greeted with a variety of flavours at each stall, as vendors commonly showcase an array of products. It is not uncommon to try a sweet saltwater taffy and a savoury barbeque sauce at the same stall. Taste of Bermuda runs all year, but the days vary depending on the season. Stop in to try something new from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. on any Friday between May 8 and October 30. Visitors who are heading back from their excursions at about that time can make one last stop to pick up a few authentic Bermudian products after they’ve sampled and savoured their way to a final decision. If you visit at any other time of the year, then stop in on a Sunday between 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. and let your adventurous spirit run wild.
