A Must-Visit Food Festival in Nevis

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - June 6, 2017

Nevis will celebrate its now-annual Mango & Food Festival July 6 – 9.

This year, celebrity chefs Judy Joo and Seamus Mullen will be headlining the festival, bringing their unique culinary talents to the island.

Chef Judy Joo, UK “Iron Chef,” host of Cooking Channel’s “Korean Foods Made Simple,” cookbook author and restaurateur who also appears on The Food Network, is making her second appearance on Nevis.

She will be joined this year by Chef Seamus Mullen, an award-winning New York chef and restaurateur, who brings an inventive approach to Spanish cuisine.

He appears regularly on Food Network shows “Chopped” and “Beat Bobby Flay.”

The Nevis Mango & Food Festival will feature four days of dining experiences, cooking demonstrations, and cook-along classes by these international chefs as well as local Nevisian chefs and cooks.

The events will take place at restaurants, beach bars and resorts around the island, culminating with Nevisian chefs and mixologists cooking at Oualie Beach on the final day.

Guests can enjoy samples of many mango-inspired dishes, made from the 44 different varieties of Nevis mangoes.

“This is an opportunity for foodies and especially mango-lovers to visit Nevis and get a taste of some incredible cooking by master chefs as well as a taste of our beautiful island, said Greg B. Phillip, CEO of the Nevis Tourism Board. “Now in its third year, this food extravaganza continues to grow in popularity with visitors and locals alike and this year promises to be something very special.”
