Trinidad and Tobago to Host International Culinary Festival in October
Trinidad and Tobago’s Minister of Tourism Dr. the Honourable Rupert Griffith on Monday evening announced that the twin-island nation will play host to an International Culinary Festival in October.
Delivering the feature address at the Food and Beverage Culinary Awards, hosted by the Trinidad Hotels, Restaurants and Tourism Association, Minister Griffith revealed that the festival will be a collaborative effort between the Ministry of Tourism and the Tourism Development Company (TDC) of Trinidad and Tobago.
The festival, which is expected to draw top culinary talent from the Caribbean, UK and Europe, will include competitions, demonstrations and cultural displays.
Minister Griffith’s announcement comes on the heels of last year’s successful hosting of the Taste T&T Culinary Festival in September. Focusing on education and community development, the Taste T&T Culinary Festival, a TDC and Ministry of Tourism initiative, comprised of two major elements - a two-day skills enhancement workshop featuring international Master Chefs and targeting local chefs, community cooks and culinary students, and a nation-wide roving community food festival and cooking competition.
