RICHMOND, Va. – Fan Favorite “Big Herm” Baskerville Owner of Big Herm’s Kitchen was back to have some fun with us on this “Little Friday.”  He fired up the grill in our backyard weather garden and took our taste buds on a trip to the islands as he walked us through his Caribbean grilled salmon paired with a mango pineapple salsa.  Big Herm’s Kitchen is located at 315 N 2nd St in Richmond.
