    This looks like such a fun event and I simply adore island food. We just came back from Martinique and the Rhum Agricole was amazing! I don’t see Martinique listed as being represented… No?

    Hello!

    I’ve heard great things about your Taste of the Caribbean event at the Hyatt. Would you ever consider doing a version of the event in Broward? I work for a brand new performing arts center in Lauderhill and I know folks would love your event up here.

    Let me know if you would like to chat.

    Best,

      Hi Morgan,

      I will pass on your request to the Taste of the Caribbean Coordinator. But feel free to share this event with your friends and coworkers at the Performing Arts Center, I’m sure they wouldn’t want to miss it! 🙂
