DUNCANS, Trelawny beckoned Sunday to the elevated climes beyond the rural hamlet of Samuel Prospect, stopping only upon crossing a palm-lined threshold leading to Arcadia — the historic great house built in 1832 of chatteron lacework and wood, and owned by husband-and-wife hoteliers Heinz and Elisabeth Simonitsch. This convoyed response was to a clarion call sounded by the pair's daughter Christina, the Western Jamaica-based baker and caterer of Simo's Bread & Catering who teamed up with the ringmasters of the 'sexy vegetarian' movement Lisa and Christopher Binns of Stush in the Bush for a Hemingway-inspired brunch and mini-market, fittingly dubbed A Moveable Feast. Marrying plated cuisine with restored colonial interiors, the 'epicurious' were invited via strategic place cards to tastefully forage and savour across the furnished surfaces of the storied home's ground floor. Thursday Food kicks off the first in a series from the brunch that lionised the virtues of food presentation. Bon appétit!
