Picture the ultimate winter get-away in the Caribbean. Then throw in 30-plus celebrity chefs, including Anthony Bourdain, Eric Ripert and Spike Mendelsohn and you have, quite possibly, the hottest ticket in the culinary fest circuit.
La Cuisine International is proud of having once again Co-sponsored the Grand Cayman’s 5th annual “Cayman Cookout” (January 17-20) featuring four days of beachfront brunching, lunching and dining on fresh Caribbean cuisine … no shoes required.
What makes this Caribbean food and wine festival stand out from the all the others? Organizers say that’s simple: intimacy.
“This one you can literally walk up and have a beer with your culinary icon, you really can get up close and personal to your favorite celeb chef,” says Nancy Harrison, Ritz Carlton Grand Cayman, the host hotel for the event.
The idea for a more intimate gathering came from the event’s ringleader, Chef Eric Ripert, best known for his Michelin rated restaurant Le Bernardin in New York City. Chef Ripert’s loyalty to the Cayman Islands started seven years ago after vacationing there for the first time. One year later he opened “Blue” at the Ritz Carlton Grand Cayman, the only AAA Five Diamond restaurant in the Caribbean.
