St. Barth’s Gourmet Food & Wine Festival
November 11 - November 15
Set a course for St. Barth’s and bring your appetite with you! This seventh annual celebration of French gastronomy is a major draw for foodies arriving by air and sea. Michelin-starred chefs will partner with top local chefs to create a series of mouth-watering gastronomic creations served over four nights at tasting dinners held at seven local restaurants. There will also be a wine tasting event and friendly cooking and cocktail making competitions.
“To enjoy a bucket-list quality tasting menu dinner, tender into the dock in Gustavia from your mooring and take a taxi or car service to one of the seven participating restaurants, which are Nikki Beach, Esprit de Saline, Tamarin, Manapany, Cheval Blanc, Carl Gustaf, and Le Sereno,” invites Stiles Bennet, president and chief managing officer of WIMCO Villas, a major supporter of the event and the island’s leading concierge service.
“We suggest making reservations in advance as seating is limited for these extraordinary dinners. We welcome those staying on private yachts to contact us for reservations for these dinners, and for reserving car service.”
To whet your appetite, consider that last year’s tasting dinner at Nikki Beach featured a pan-fried foie gras appetizer with porcini mushrooms, lentil caviar and Kaffir lime. The main course was roast duck accompanied by chestnuts, chanterelles, baby lettuce and the Caribbean flair of tamarind sauce. For dessert? Caramelized apples and buckwheat ice cream. saintbarthgourmetfestival.com, www.wimco.com
