British Virgin Islands Set for Food Fete

16 Sep

The second annual BVI Food Fete, a month-long cultural culinary event, returns to the archipelago this November, offering visitors a one-of-a-kind dining experience as they island-hop around the BVI.

The event will feature acclaimed chefs from around the world, a variety of competitions and cook-offs, and plenty of opportunities to indulge in local cuisine.

“Our second BVI Food Fete offers a blend of new and signature events that have been curated for epicureans, tastemakers, and novice culinary explorers,” said British Virgin Islands Director of Tourism, Sharon Flax-Mars. “Through our numerous festivities we aim to introduce our guests to our culinary tourism product in a platform that blends discovery and adventure as we expose them to the variety of experiences that are offered along our turquoise shores and beaches.”

The festivities kick off Nov. 7 with Taste of Tortola, which will include a Demonstration Kitchen, a Fish & Fungi Competition, a Mixologist Competition, and a Foodie Photo Booth.

Other events throughout the month include Jost Crawl, a bar crawl across Jost Van Dyke; The Barefoot Gourmet Soirée, a culinary experience featuring signature dishes from local and international chefs alike; Taste of Virgin Gorda, featuring a Chef Cook-Off and food and wine prepared by seven restaurants; On the Rocks Bar Crawl, a party safari bus ride around the bars of Virgin Gorda; a Culinary Education Program; Lobster Crawl, a bar crawl on Anegada; and an Anegada Lobster Festival.

Special ferry tickets will be available for purchase for transportation from the USVI, Tortola, and Virgin Gorda to Anegada for the events.
