Thank You and Update Re: National Culinary Team


Taste of the CaribbeanWe would like to offer our sincere thanks for your continued support of our National Culinary Team, as they continue to prepare to compete at Taste of the Caribbean in Miami at the end of June

By way of an update, The Team has been working diligently; perfecting their culinary, cocktail and ice sculpture creations. This has manifested into the most delicious creations, those of us who have had the privilege of sampling, have ever tasted. Their work truly exemplifies the incredible talent we have in The Bahamas.

The National Team has also made an outreach to the Junior Chefs who are currently studying at the College of The Bahamas’, Culinary & Hospitality Management Institute. The Chefs have recently conducted a number of mentoring sessions with the students.

This process has been embraced by the students and team members alike as the junior chefs have been able to work side by side with the elite chefs. The young chefs endeavor to learn from the National Culinary Team, connect with them and truly see first-hand what the future holds if they aspire to achieve the same level of excellence.

Public Relations

We continue to experience very positive public relations, as the media houses have promoted the team, and of course you our sponsors and partners are thanked profusely throughout! (see attached). The team will continue to be showcased on Tourism Today, and in the media. In fact a trip to Miami is scheduled where we will see representative from the team featured on “Deco Drive”! Also a special presentation showcasing the amazing mentoring session will also be aired on Tourism Today. We are most pleased to be part of the effort to propel our Culinary Arts to the forefront of local and international awareness.

Gala Demonstration Dinner
Finally, we are preparing to provide the public (albeit a limited number of the public – only 100 seats available!) with the opportunity to savor the National Teams culinary and cocktail creations, at the Gala Demonstration Dinner which will be held at the esteemed Sapodilla Restaurant on June 23rd 2014.

We look forward to continuing to work with all of you, as we continue this amazing journey with the National Culinary Team. We applaud this private/public sector partnership as the Team gets ready to represent The Bahamas as premier leaders in the culinary field. We are confident of their ability to excel as Bahamian ambassadors showcasing the country’s ability to offer some of the most distinctly diverse and savory dishes and drinks in the region.

Thank you again
Suzanne Pattusch
