Born and raised in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, my name is Anquanette Gaspard. I am a freelance writer & blogger with extensive experience in food, travel, marketing, customer service and research. CruzanFoodie.com focuses on food and travel with intent focus on the food culture in the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Caribbean & beyond.
Let me show you how to travel the Caribbean off the beaten path and discover that not all islands are the same, despite a multitude of similarities. Escape the typical tourist traps and break free of the watered down Caribbean experience. Allow me to encourage you to experience different foods & cultures and explore locations outside of your comfort zone. This will help you fully understand how food & travel connect people from all walks of life. Cruzan Foodie is part of who I am; being a foodie is what drives my passion to explore the Caribbean and destinations beyond St. Croix.
My work has been featured in publications such as:
- Discover USVI
- Experience BVI
- EBONY Magazine
- Essence Magazine
- Marriott Destination
