Last month through The Daily Meal I had the opportunity to visit Hawks Cay Resort down in the Florida Keys on the largest island in Duck Key. On an early Monday morning I flew down to warm Miami and met with several other press representatives before we all ambled onto a chartered van to take us several hours south along U.S. 1.
I have never really been to Florida before, other than a brief passing through on airlines, but Mr. C lived there for several years before we met and he’s told me many stories about it. Being the food snob (or “enthusiast”- I prefer the term enthusiast) that I am, the thing that stuck most clearly in my mind was the significance of key lime pie from the keys. It was only fitting that after our first meal in Florida (which consisted of amazing fish tacos) during the drive down, I took advantage of being able to order key lime pie.
