Where do you live?
I live over our Nassau Café Bistro in Tsada with my husband
Best childhood memory?
Having early breakfast with my father every morning in Nassau
Most frequented restaurant and absolute favourite dish?
Chloe’s Chinese restaurant, Paphos, where the coconut cod is my favourite
What food do you turn your nose up at?
Food that’s not prepared with fresh ingredients. Here at our cafe we use only fresh meat, herbs and spices to cook our Caribbean food. We don’t cut corners with the flavours and quality of our food
What did you have for breakfast?
A fairly typical Caribbean meal of polenta with eggs and deli turkey/chicken
Would you class yourself as a day or night person? What is your favourite night out?
I’m a day person; I like to get things done as early as possible. We don’t really get nights out as such with the Bistro but my favourite night is Sunday when we are not working and can just chill out with a glass of wine
Best book ever read?
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, published in 1960. I found it fascinating
Favourite film of all time?
Dirty Dancing. It had so many great scenes, fabulous music and, of course, Patrick Swayze
Favourite holiday destination?
Best holiday vacation was to Rome when I was 25. The sights were breath taking and food was so fresh and tasty
What music are you listening to in the car at the moment?
The best of the 70s. But I like all sorts of music; I am particularly looking forward to being entertained by Terry Taylor, Sunset Music Man, for our Valentine’s Night party
What is always in your fridge?
Champagne – and for Valentine’s most especially! On a more mundane level, vegetables and all the staples that go into authentic Caribbean food.
Dream house: rural retreat or urban dwelling? Where would it be, what would it be like?
Rural retreat with my own farm and herb garden; I’d really love to do that
What is your greatest fear?
I have NO fear!
If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?
I would pick my father who just passed… just so I could hear all his silly riddles again
Tell me a joke?
Terrorism strikes no fear in my heart because I’ve been married for years
