In The Bahamas, a Festival of Bread
It just might be the best bread you’ve ever tasted.
And if you’ve been to the island of Bimini in The Bahamas, you know what we’re talking about.
This is Bimini Bread, the doughy, fluffy, perfectly sweet and endlessly delicious bread for which the island of famous — and now the subject of a new festival.
It’s called the Bimini Bread Festival, and it will be hosted at Resorts World Bimini this October.
The festival, set at the Healing Hole in the resort’s Fisherman’s Village, will run from Oct. 6-8, a weekend of events with the famous delicacy at the epicenter.
The event begins with a welcome Bahama Mama cocktail party in the resort’s piano lounge.
Oct. 7 will see Executive Chef Curtis Smithen and Executive Pastry Chef Brenton Samuels demonstrating how to make the bread from scratch.
That will be joined by food specials featuring Bimini Grilled Cheese (with lobster, bacon or chicken) and other traditional Bahamian foods, drinks and more, accompanied by music from the Primetime Band.
The festival concludes with a beach party led by a DJ at Bimini Beach.
