Baccanalle - Award winning Caribbean Food

Today as I sit in the sun, I have been closing my eyes and imagining I am somewhere with hot sand, palm trees, amazing music and incredible foods. While we may not be able to travel there these days, Chef Resa Solomon St Lewis brings the Caribbean culinary experience to Ottawa. 

Chef Resa has won multiple awards including the Black History Ottawa Community Builder Award and top honours for the Embassy Chef Challenge - Championship and People's Choice Awards as a representative for Trinidad and Tobago. She was born in Winnipeg and her family originates from Trinidad and Tobago.

A woman of many talents, Chef Resa graduated from both the culinary program at Algonquin College and the engineering program at University of Ottawa. "I integrate my heritage, my engineering background and culinary skills to innovate products and recipes" she says. 

Baccanalle offers catering, ready-to-eat freezer meals, artisan foods and craft drinks. You can order online on their website at

Or on Facebook and Instagram @Baccanalle
