Isoul H. Harris found a new reason (hint: decadent new dishes and wine) to fall in love with his favorite island, Turks & Caicos.
I adore Turks & Caicos. The country consists of over 40 different islands and cays (only eight are inhabited), with Providenciales at its center. Having hopscotched through the Caribbean over the years, I learned quickly that not all isles are created equal. Turks truly deserves claims by top travel magazines that it has the best beaches in the world. It gives you what you want when you jet to the Caribbean: miles of beautiful shore, milky-white sand massaging your toes at every step, and sapphire-colored skies reminding you every moment that your cares and concerns exist elsewhere. Bruce Willis, Oprah Winfrey, Donna Karan, and Keith Richards agree: Each reportedly own homes here. Though I never need a reason to visit, when I found out that Grace Bay Resort was hosting the First Annual Caribbean Food and Wine Festival, I booked the ticket.
