West Indian Dining in Connecticut? No Problem.
It was Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the morning of Barack Obama's second inauguration, and four members of the planning committee for Hartford's Taste of the Caribbean and Jerk Festival sat down to draw up the agenda for this year's event, slated for Aug. 3. The festival, now in its eighth year, draws food vendors from Boston, New York and even Miami to what is now one of the most lively food events in the Northeast. It helps keep Hartford on the map and rounds out the city's trifecta of distinction: Insurance capital, state capital, and New England's capital of West Indian cuisine.
