Taste of Curaçao Afternoon Tea

July 13 @ 2:00 pm 4:00 pm

Dutch Curaçao, a stunning Caribbean Island, holds a special place in my heart. I fell in love with it during our first visit four years ago. Drawing inspiration from our spring trip to Curaçao, this Taste of Curaçao Afternoon Tea reflects the vibrant Caribbean essence through delicious local ingredients, sun-kissed fruit, colorful vegetables, and aromatic spices. Immerse yourself in this creative menu, allowing it to transport you on a culinary adventure that captures the essence of island living and a relaxing day at the beach.

Travel Tip: If you find yourself traveling to Curaçao, make sure to book a Caribbean Cooking Class with Helmi Smeulders, the Caribbean Chef. Many of the dishes in this menu were inspired by the class Paul and I took with Helmi.
