Waves Beach Resort

Waves Beach Resort hotel is on the west coast of Barbados at Prospect Bay in St. James.  Set on the beautiful coast with amazing views, the food is also fantastic and not one, but ALL the restaurants in this hotel cater for those requiring a gluten free diet.  The reviews on Trip Advisor are great too and almost tempted me to book a week here (and I live on the island!!!).    The hotel also welcomes residents of Barbados and visitors to the island to dine with them for lunch and dinner.   The offerings for non-hotel guests still come inclusive of drinks, house wine and cocktails too!

The three restaurants to choose from are Seascape which offers an international selection and also has traditional Caribbean food, Rosso Vivo which has a range of Mediterranean food and Feast that serves tasty pan-Asian food.  Not only is the food fabulous, the settings of the restaurant offer the visitor a feast for the eyes, as well as the taste buds.

Cuban Salad

A colourful salad
A colourful salad

A salad that is full of colour and looks good enough to eat!  Part of the fun is the assembling of the salad but you could change how I have it if you are feeling creative enough.    This Cuban salad  recipe is an easy salad to make and very refreshing.     The dressing is fresh and tasty too.   I had difficulty restraining myself from munching the whole plate in one sitting!

The salad is a melody of avocado, tomatoes, lettuce, onion and radishes.  So simple and with a tasty dressing is very uplifting.   It needs to be eaten pretty soon after making as the avocado may start to discolour.

Vegetarian Jamaican Patties (Gluten Free)

When I lived in London I used to love the Jamaican patties that were sold in supermarkets, fish and chip shops and even the Iceland store!   The bright pastry and the mixture of spices was just addictive.    I decided to have a go at making them myself and also make them gluten free using an all purpose gluten free flour.

After a few tweaks of the spices I was very happy with the result.  They came out of the oven hot and barely were allowed to cool before we munched the lot, all for the sake of research, of course…. You could have this as a main dish with a salad or other veggies.  Or make small ones and have them as a snack/starter or something spicy for your lunchbox.

Hazelnut and Orange Cookies

Mmmm...soft and chewy
Mmmm…soft and chewy

I experimented with ground hazelnuts in place of ground almonds to make a cookie and was pleasantly surprised.  These are a soft, chewy cookie with a lovely hint of orange that combines well with the hazelnut.   The recipe is easy to do.  You could get the children to whip up a batch whilst you sit back on the sofa!    Continue Reading

Strawberry Vanilla Muffin (Almond Flour)

This is a lovely light, moist muffin made from almond flour.  Almond flour is basically ground blanched almonds.  It is sold sometimes as almond powder.  The muffin batter will be very runny, but don’t panic..it cooks well into a moist muffin!  You could substitute the strawberries with other berries too.   I find that gluten free baking can often be easier than the “traditional” route as you are not spending ages creaming butter with sugar and building a bicep whilst making the batter.   You just mix, stir, bake and enjoy!

Relish Epicure – Lime Grove

This lovely delicatessen is situated in the Lime Grove Centre which is in Holetown and home to all the upmarket shops.   This gorgeous place to eat sits in amongst them and holds it own.  As well as offering gluten free delights, I noticed that they also sell gluten free bread and muffins amongst the chiller section with no cross contamination!

They have rave reviews from Trip Advisor and is an excellent venue to enjoy fun, fresh food at a decent price.

Coconut and Chocolate Tartlets

This is a great use of coconut as it is used to make the cases for these delicious desserts.  The chocolate filling is tasty and I even made one version with a large dash of rum (naughty but nice). Yummy, tell me more Diva... I used a muffin tin to make these but you could use a mini muffin tin to make small dainty ones.  Hey, who I am kidding, make them large and glorious!
