A native of Jamaica, chef Jackie Hill has carried her home country's cuisine with her in her travels, creating her own brand of Caribbean cooking infused with culinary styles sourced from America and the Mediterranean. At Catering by Saffron's Cuisine of the Sun, she and her staff cater eclectic meals customized to most clients' requests as long as they don't involve building an entire house out of lamb chops, which wouldn't keep out any wolves. Appetizers include grilled shrimp skewers and empanadas filled with guava and spicy beef, while the signature jerk chicken entree is marinated in a special blend of spices and finished with house-made jerk sauce and onion vinaigrette.
The experienced staff at Gulfport Florist artfully handcrafts fresh flowers into themed or custom arrangements to suit any occasion. Winter-themed designs include the two-taper centerpiece: a low bowl filled with two red candles, red carnations and roses, and fragrant pine ($44.95), ideal for dressing up dinner tables or vacation campsites. Shoppers can welcome a newborn boy or girl into the world with a dainty white basket of daisies and yellow or pink roses ($45.95). The red roses and stargazer lilies of the Love and Romance bouquet commingle in a white ceramic vase adorned with a heart ($59.95) to create a sweeter Valentine's Day surprise than a backpack filled with moistened Jolly Ranchers. Patrons can pick up bunches of blooms in the store or have them delivered for an additional fee ($8 Monday–Saturday).
Much like professional skydivers, wily coyotes, and other careers that involve a degree of danger, most professional glassblowers aren’t self-taught. Joshua Poll, however, learned to harness the glass furnace all by himself, today imparting more than a decade of self-taught experience to Zen Glass Studios, where he and fellow glass smith David Walker create custom works of art by hand. Together they shape glass into authentic and unique pieces, including custom glassware and jewelry to wear while meeting a spouse’s goldfish for the first time.
Within their studio, Joshua and David teach workshops and classes, during which students survey basic to advanced glass-blowing techniques, crafting their own handmade objects such as ornaments, beer glasses, and vases. The duo also runs a full glassblower training program, which follows a syllabus structured to arm all students with all the necessary skills to set out on their own in the industry, just as Joshua did all those years ago.
