ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – “We now have the USVI, Barbados and even St Barts now in the fray with food events in November. As the BVI continues to set the pace, we intend to lead the charge. Hence, we are creating exciting new additions to our lineup.”

This is according to Sharon Flax-Brutus, Director of the BVI Tourist Board, speaking at the BVI Food Fete 2017 launch on June 9, 2017 at Callwood’s Rum Distillery in Cane Garden Bay.

A look at the schedule indicates that visitors and residents will be in for a delightful treat for this year’s BVI Food Fete events, from November 3-25, 2017. In addition, the events will also highlight and showcase some of the territory’s most talented chefs and their scrumptious custom-made cuisines.

VI culinary skills ‘2nd to none’

Remarks were given by Junior Minister for Tourism, Honourable Archibald C. Christian and Second District Representative, Honourable Melvin 'Mitch' Turnbull.

Hon Christian commented that his most memorable Food Fete experiences took place on Norman Island and Virgin Gorda. “Those experiences were very rewarding to me and for the very first time I realised that the culinary skills that exist in the BVI are second to none. The Food Fete is an opportunity for us to continue to export what the BVI has to offer in terms of its food and the beverages that we make.”

‘Our job & responsibility’

Honourable Turnbull stated that he is looking forward to attending the events of the BVI Food Fete. “It’s just exciting to know what we’re able to produce and promote the British Virgin Islands culture that we love, that we enjoy. More and more people are coming and speaking about the BVI.”

He continued, “So it is our job and our responsibility to continue to promote BVI as one BVI and continue to move, not just the Second District, not just Tortola and Virgin Gorda but the entire BVI, moving forward and promoting as the premier destination in the world.”

Cindy Rosan-Jones, Event Coordinator, expressed gratitude to all the individuals assisting in making the BVI Food Fete a success.

      Turnout was excellent! Easily over 200 people! You all make the dog sick with your negativity and lies. Go to Platinum and see the images. The event was great!

    I don't agree, the size of the crowd was just right for the venue. The fried fish and coconut johnny cakes were on point. The HLSCC Stingrays was awesome. Great launch. Can't wait till November!
