An Embarassment of Mangoes

Author(s): Ann Vanderhoof


In the mid 1990s they were driven, forty something professionals, desperate for a break from their deadline-dominated lives. So they left their jobs, rented out their house, moved onto a yacht and set sail from their home in Canada for the Caribbean. In the next two years the couple travelled over 7,000 nautical miles, dropped anchor in 16 countries (and 47 islands), and adapted to life on 'island time'.
Exchanging suits for bare feet, they became caught up in a world that was simpler and more exuberant. They explored secluded beaches, danced through the streets during Canrival, learned to pull their dinner from the sea and create delectable dishes in their tiny kitchen. Intersperced with irresistible recipes, from cracked conch in the Bahamas to curried lobster in Grenada, An Embarassment of Mangoes is Ann Vanderhoof's enticing story of discovering not just vibrabt new cultures and cuisines, but what really matters most.
