The British Virgin Islands Tourist Board invites foodies from across the country to experience four unique Epicurean Guest Chef Events at Peter Island Resort this year. The first event kicks off during the week of May 8 with Chef Christopher Ivens-Brown, who has gained local celebrity status via his local television show in Charlotte, North Carolina, ‘Cooking at Home with Chef Chris,’ and his soon to be published book, ‘Planet to Plate, Cooking for Change.’
This private event provides personal interactions and unique learning opportunities with each visiting chef in addition to Peter Island’s very talented onsite chef, Lisa Sellers. Guests are invited to enjoy private cooking classes in the Architectural-Digest-inspired villa, Falcon’s Nest, which boasts a state-of-the-art commercial kitchen. They also will be ferried via a private boat to neighboring island Tortola to tour Paraquita Bay, a working agricultural farm, where they can purchase local ingredients for an evening feast.
Details of the event include a meet-the-chef party in Falcon’s Nest Villa with sunset cocktails and canapes, a visit to Paraquita Bay to purchase local produce for the cooking class to follow, a gourmet evening with a five-course wine dinner prepared by the chefs, samples of the new menu items offered by Tradewinds, an interactive opportunity with wine expertly paired by sommelier, Jesse Hocker, compliments of Chef Chris, a complimentary gift, and a pocket-sized recipe book from Chef Chris.
