Delicious Food Finds in the
U.S. Virgin Islands
Delicious and enjoyable are two words that come to mind when I hear what Dawn Richards has to say about her recent visit to the U.S. Virgin Islands to learn about local cuisine and agriculture. It is no surprise she knows how to scout out the best restaurants and the local spots for a classic island dish; she is the editor and owner of DMR Fine Foods, a culinary blog all about fabulous recipes, and amazing dishes with her special touch. You’ll find her each month in the Atlanta Tribune Magazine, sharing a new creation of fresh ingredients made with a sprinkle of tradition and a dash of Dawn’s magic!
As a self-taught cook, she knows what tourists want when looking for a great meal. Dawn has participated in cooking courses at The Lenotre Cooking School and Le Cordon Blue in Paris, France while traveling abroad. And, if shopping at Williams-Sonoma is your favorite passion, you may find her wearing the chef’s hat as a culinary instructor.
In 2011 she won the Cooking Channel’s The Perfect 3 Recipe Contest in the taco category for her Grilled Steak Tacos with Chipotle Cream and Chimichurri recipe and had her winning recipe featured in a webisode on CookingChanneltv.com!
I had a chance to sit down with her and talk about her recent trip. She shares several tasty details which will have you booking a trip to the beautiful U.S. Virgin Islands. Remember – no passport needed to fly away to this delicious destination!
