A taste of a ”Taste of Cayman” Culinary Festival

The return of Taste of Cayman was announced Wednesday during an islandwide restaurant tour that provided a preview of the main event.

The renowned food and drink festival is scheduled for Jan. 26 at Camana Bay and is expected to feature more than 40 local restaurants and bars serving their signature dishes and drinks to thousands of festivalgoers.

To promote the festival, this week the Cayman Islands Tourism Association and Tower Marketing held a “magical mystery bus tour” of some of the event’s featured venues. Journalists were treated to a taste of Taste of Cayman in a mini-tour that served as an appetizer to January’s main event.

At Bandidos Cantina in Seven Mile Shops, the first stop, owner Jason Moir served Mexican street corn along with the restaurant’s famous guacamole and tortilla chips.

Mixing drinks in front of shelves filled with different varieties of tequila, he said the restaurant was looking forward to taking part in the festival for the second year since its opening.

Mr. Moir, who has been involved in the festival with other establishments in the past, said the event was going from strength to strength and he plans to serve up his famous corn along with a mystery “sweet treat” next year.

At Agua restaurant in Camana Bay, Cristiano Vincentini served conch, Scotch bonnet and seasonal pepper pasta, washed down with a Mediterranean Essence cocktail.

He said the restaurant was thriving since its move to the town center. Along with sister restaurant Catch, in West Bay, he said Agua sought to stand out from the crowd through its commitment to using the best ingredients and hiring the best sommeliers, mixologists and chefs on the island.
