Anguilla’s new culinary festival is returning after a successful first edition last year.
The second edition of the Anguilla Culinary Experience will run May 3 to 6, bringing together chefs from Anguilla and the world and focusing on the island’s dynamic dining scene.
“Last year’s Anguilla Culinary Experience was a great success. It was a joy to share Anguilla’s history, hospitality and incredible cuisine with new visitors and long-time island fans, while also raising funds to support the island’s next generation of chefs. ACE was a labor of love with many people contributing their time and talents. This May, we look forward to showing once again why Anguilla is the Culinary Capital of the Caribbean,” said ACE co-chair and Villa Alegria owner Wendy Freeman of Chicago.
In a new addition, the new Aurora Anguilla Resort and Golf Club will host the opening party of the event.
“We are thrilled to host the opening night event of Anguilla Culinary Experience at Aurora Anguilla Resort,” said said Aurora Anguilla General Manager Kevin Carty. It is an honor to showcase the dining experiences and craft cocktails we create for our guests. The Anguilla Culinary Experience is a true celebration of the island’s rich culinary heritage, and we are excited to be a part of it.”
From May 4 to 6, resorts and eateries across the island will feature unique dining experiences, including resident and guest chefs.
That will include an appearance by Daniele Lippi, of the two-Michelin-star Acquolina eatery in Italy, who will cook at the Savi Beach Club during the event.
“The Anguilla Culinary Experience is a unique and wonderful addition to our island’s event calendar, a fitting tribute to our extraordinary cuisine and exceptional culinary talents,” stated Stacey Liburd, Anguilla’s Director of Tourism. “The variety of epicurean experiences offered – from private dinners to barbecue beach parties, from gourmet island tours to traditional culinary practices, with the support and participation of our most popular bars and restaurants – all together make ACE the most exciting festival in the Caribbean.”
