Barbados Food & Wine and Rum Festival
As November approaches, excitement in Barbados builds. Not only is it the month in which we celebrate Independence, it's also when we welcome top international chefs to our shores for the annual Barbados Food & Wine and Rum Festival!
Visitors to the festival are treated to several days of the very best international cuisine and cooking demonstrations. For the 2012 festival we were thrilled to have Marcus Samuelsson, Iron Chef Jose Garces, Food Network star Anne Burrell and Mark McEwan.
Wine experts are on hand to offer suggestions for pairings and to introduce you to the subtle characteristics that make each wine special.
Of course with Barbados being the birthplace of rum, no epicurean festival would be complete without this local spirit. See what goes into making the perfect Barbados Rum Punch and explore where we've been creating some of the world's finest rums for over 350 years!
The 2013 Food & Wine and Rum Festival is scheduled for November 21st to 25th and we welcome back Marcus Samuelsson, Jose Garces, Anne Burrell, Aaron McCargo and Mark McEwan. See the full schedule. Check www.foodwinerum.com for when tickets are available.
