Rum Pairing Dinner at Sandy Lane Hotel

Finally back from my trip, and I'll bring you an update soon in future posts. Despite the obviously cold weather I managed to accomplish most of what I went there to do.
Back here in Barbados, I just discovered that Sandy Lane Hotel will tonight be hosting a Rum Pairing Dinner in honour of The Barbados Museum and Historical Society. I find this intriguing because I am definitely not a fan of rum at all. But I have never tasted rum paired with dishes, so I imagine it could be quite nice like this. Here is the menu:

First Course
Rum Cured Salmon Gravlax with Irish Soda Bread and Espresso Honey Mustard Sauce
Second Course
Sweet Potato Gnocchi, Allspice Braised Lamb Osso Bucco and English Peas
Main course
Black Pepper Roasted Beef Tenderloin, Rum Soaked Sultana Raisins, Shallot Confit and Grilled Asparagus.

Dessert will be Baba au Rhum with Tropical Fruits and Whipped Creme Fraiche.

A rum-infused meal certainly sounds like a unique and intriguing dining experience.
