Taste of Cayman – January 28, 2017

The 29th Annual Taste of Cayman Food & Wine Festival will be held on Saturday January 28th at Festival Green Camana Bay.
Taste of Cayman began in the late 80's with a small number of restaurants from the Cayman Islands Restaurant Association meeting in a field to compete in a Chili Cook Off.  The event has now grown to what it is today, with over 45 restaurants and distributors participating in an open air event that attracts thousands of people.
Taste of Cayman 2017 is going to be even bigger and tastier than ever!  We'll bring back some of the features that make the Festival a huge attraction each year but we also have some new, exciting elements!  Don't miss out on your chance to sample tantalizing food and incredible wines!
DEMONSTRATION KITCHEN: Our demo kitchen will be back again.  Watch some of the island's best chefs mix it up in our state-of-the-art kitchen as they show us how to make our favorite local and international dishes.
