Greece

About a month ago, my grandparents, mum, best friend and myself were immersing ourselves into island life – Greek-style – and I thought it was about time some of the beauty we witnessed was properly shared.   Paros Antiparos Athens   All photographs are copyright of Kelsi Farrington 2015 unless otherwise stated.

Recap: Bologna Children’s Book Fair 2015

Last week Tuesday, two friends and I hopped aboard a plane from London to Bologna — the first time I’d been to this Northern Italian city. Located in the Emilia-Romagna region, Bologna is quite well known for its food (completely understandable) but also for its annual Children’s Book Fair…well for us Publishing folk it is. Fantastic food…

Just Touched Down in London Town

After successfully being offered an internship in The Big Smoke (aka London), I have recently had to leave my idyllic island life. I’ve made it through one, full week here in London Town and believe me, it’s taking a lot of adjusting after nearly 4 months of being in the Bahamas – a completely different way…

Highlights of: ‘Devour! The Beach’ Food & Wine Festival

With the long-winded agro of traveling back to the UK after three months at home in the Bahamas, I have finally gotten the chance to share with you my highlights of the first ‘Devour! The Beach’ food and wine festival that took place the end of March on Green Turtle Cay. ‘Devour! The Beach’ is the…

Recipe Sharing: Bahamian Coconut ‘Trifle’ Cake

Because I wanted to start getting some photographs for ‘Potcake’, I’ve taken time away from job hunting and freelancing to do what I love – photographing interesting people in their kitchens. You’ll notice that my portfolio consists of several features about chefs. When I wrote my pitch for my Bahamian cookbook, ‘Potcake,’ I knew that…

Green Turtle Cay: Island Life and History

Life on the Cay has been nice…slow-paced but I’m enjoying that. I’ve been busy applying for jobs every day but in between working with my mum cleaning houses. I’ve also been spending as much time into the kitchen and into my writing as I can squeeze in. Cooking for my mum has been particularly enjoyable…

Cooking With: The Green Turtle Club

Head Chef Mike Howell allowed me to photograph him and his team last night in a kitchen that brought back so many memories. Both of my parents were managers at The Green Turtle Club so I spent most of my childhood there and it was a pleasure being back.   – Lobster Ravioli –  – Shrimp…

All About This Island Life

Two weeks have just about passed since landing back into the Bahamas. Island life has taken a bit of adjusting, particularly when I’m in that very hungry, and intensely eager mentality to get myself into a city and be thoroughly employed. That’s not happening as yet, so I’m blessed to be in such a beautiful…
