Tourism is the Bahamas’ bread and butter, and so hospitality and culinary studies are rather important. There is a restaurant training school here called Choices that has $35 five course menus. All and sundry do not seem to know about the place, and so you can go there and be served without too much waiting or hustle and bustle. I’ve been twice now, and both times the food has been very good – even excellent in spots, and the student waitstaff are very charming–such a refreshing change from waitstaff who are surly and rude. Tonight’s menu was:

Smoke Shrimp Cocktail

Drizzled with lemon lime vinaigrette

Leek and Potato Soup

With parsley and garlic croutons

Grilled Quail with a Molasses Glaze

Served with a corn and arugula salad

Dover Sole Almandine

Dover Sole sautéed in butter & herbs


Seared Pork Loin

Served with a flavorful apple & ginger sauce

Entrees are served with:  Dill Potatoes &

Assorted Glaze Vegetables

Crème Caramel

Truly a classic; creamy custard with a caramelized sugar glaze
