Esther & Omega’s Cooking Class

“Omega means last,” Esther announces with a playful grin as she stands in front of the class passing out tasty samples from the grill. Omega would have to wait. A sad voice from the back of the room replies “Esther is being mean to me.” and the entire audience turns to see Omega staring at the floor. Immediately, they begin to console her. Esther rolls her eyes, as usual.

 True Blue Resort and Marina offers a weekly cooking class with Chef’s Esther and Omega every Thursday. They rarely miss a date – even during the holidays. That just gives them the opportunity to add some history to the flavor of their local cuisine or offer a special treat – a sample of teas or a bite of pumpkin cheesecake – YUM!

Despite their antics, Esther and Omega are passionate about sharing their knowledge about food and Grenada. In fact, they have a loyal following as year after year when the cruisers return to the islands for hurricane season, they pack the house.
