Gee, this sounds very inviting. Having just been to Barbados in February, I can tell you this island is very different from anyplace else in the Caribbean. They’ve been very fortunate to move beyond the poverty and despair which is, unfortunately, so prevalent in the Caribbean. Needless to say we’ll help with the reservations to get there and to stay. The drinking and enjoyment is up to you.
DON’T MISS THE SIGHTS, SOUNDS AND THE TASTES OF BARBADOS!
Join hundreds of fellow gourmands, eight legendary chefs, and one of the world’s top wine experts as we gather to celebrate all things food and drink on the idyllic Caribbean island nation of Barbados. Tantalize your palate with the finest foods, sip from the most coveted vintages of wine, and learn while you taste the legendary rums of the island at this four day festival, November 18th through the 21st, 2011.
The food, always a centerpiece, is sure to delight, as world-renowned chefs such as Tom Colicchio, Ming Tsai, Mark McEwan, Tom Brodi, Bruno Loubet, Marcus Samuelsson and Barbados’ own Paul Yellin ply their considerable talents, creating wondrous meals and offering tastings throughout the festival.
As for wine, well, the fruits of the vineyard will be represented quite well, including your chance to learn more about wine, winemaking and wine tasting with world-famous wine expert Anthony Giglio. Mr. Giglio is known not only for his exhaustive knowledge, but also his unpretentious presentation and easy-going style.
And last, but in Barbados, certainly not least, is the rum. For over 350 years, Barbados has been home to some of the most celebrated distilleries in the world, and this is your opportunity to sample their products, tour their facilities, and increase your knowledge of this complex spirit.
