This Is Your Next Caribbean Food Festival

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - March 20, 2016

It’s billed as the largest culinary festival in the Caribbean — and now it’s back again for a ninth year.

Saborea, the Puerto Rico Hotel and Tourism Association’s culinary extravaganza on San Juan’s Playa Escambron, will take place from April 7 to 10, bringing together gastronomic creations from more than 70 local restaurants and gathering a host of top chefs from around the world.

“”Gastronomy is an essential part of tourism because it makes the destination both attractive and appetizing,” said Clarisa Jiménez, president and CEO of the Puerto Rico Hotel and Tourism Association. “Our chefs are our Island’s ambassadors; they showcase our gastronomy to the world and Puerto Rico Saborea is the time of the year when they do so all together in one place.”

Chefs set to be on hand for this year’s festival include Cutthroat Kitchen winner Emily Ellyn; restaurateur Ben Vaugh; Iron Chef America contestant Simon Majumdar and food personality Anne Burell.

“”Saborea Puerto Rico is synonymous of world-class cuisine and the moment during which we reaffirm that our Island is without a doubt the Culinary Capital of the Caribbean,” Jimenez said.
