“Each Caribbean Celebrity Chef was chosen for their professional excellence but more importantly for their determination to create delicious fine-dining offerings using traditional Caribbean ingredients and recipes.” said Sylma Brown who heads the CTO’s New York office, the organisers of Caribbean Week.

She elaborated stating, “We believe our Caribbean cuisine is a very marketable aspect of our tourism and we are happy to have these internationally acclaimed chefs to demonstrate to prospective visitors what they can expect when they visit our member countries.”
