A new top chef at the private island resort
By Dana Niland
The Peter Island Resort and Spa in the British Virgin Islands has welcomed Executive Chef Todd Howard to its culinary team.
Howard will be creating new menu concepts at the luxury resort’s gourmet restaurant, Tradewinds, and its casual, beachside Deadman’s Bar & Grill.
“We are excited to welcome Chef Howard onboard to lead our passionate culinary team,” said Peter Island Resort’s General Manager, Scott Hart. “Todd has that rare talent for creating truly sublime dishes that are structured and elegant in a way that allows the ingredients to speak for themselves.”
Howard most recently served as Chef of the Mark Anthony Group, where he worked to support local farms – focusing on organic and biodynamic cuisine – and developed customized menus for celebrities, royalty, and the award-winning Mission Hill Winery.
According to Hart, Howard will be building upon his farm-to-table dining expertise in order to create a signature “island-to-table” concept at the resort.
“We’ll also be working on further developing our spa and wellness menus,” Hart said. “Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of options at our two restaurants — from simple, fresh, local fare, to more creative interpretations, and from popular classic gourmet dishes, to cuisine that showcases the flavors and ingredients unique to the Caribbean.”
