Enhance the Taste

Unleash your inner Chef

Hello!

I am the chef & writer behind the food blog Persimmon & Thyme and the confectionary company Paradise Gourmet Doughnuts & Co.

Although Persimmon & Thyme is simply a food blog, my goal is to evolve into so much more. 

Allow me to introduce you to Paradise Gourmet Doughnuts & Co. a "tasting menu" for my readers and subscribers alike.

 Paradise Gourmet is a home based confectionary specializing in artisanal doughnuts & specialty confections some of which have not yet been featured — located in Freeport, Grand Bahama.

The vision behind PGD is to provide delicious variations of doughnuts, quick breads & other favored desserts with a unique twist. Our menu items are altered quite often, leaving much room to enjoy an array of gourmet confections on a weekly basis. Each and every one of our products are homemade, handmade and made in paradise.
