This review has been long in coming but the fact that I am writing it now and am still excited stands as a testament to the "Table for Two experience".
My wife's birthday is mid October and I started contacting Elspeth EARLY, since I had to plan our children. Chef E was most giving of her knowledge about what we could do with our time alone in Tobago to make the weekend memorable. This included ideas on where to stay and other places to go to. Those suggestions turned into Lillibet's in Castara (with the fabulous view) and Healing with Horses in Buccoo in addition to the Blue Food Festival which i found through other means ;-) We are not 'touristy' so the community vibe of these places was perfect; we also got our orders in early enough at the mud oven in Castara (heavenly).
Back to Table for Two. When we finally got there, we were blown away by the thought that our host put into our evening. To say our meal was catered specifically to us would be downright disrespectful of of the energy put in by Elspeth. More than a meal this was an experience that saw food and activities create a place and space for us to reconnect on a very real level, which is sometimes quite hard to do when everything trying to make us focus more on the children and work than ourselves. When we find that happening lately, one of the things we do is play a video created by Chef E (cooking up great memories and fabulous food) of our special evening.
One problem though, It was so good I do not know what to plan this October (- _ -)
Bless you Elspeth
