On Some Islands Swimsuits Star; On St. Barts Pleasing Palates Reigns

Island chefs create February/April dining extravaganzas to prove once again (should anyone doubt) St. Barts is Caribbean's culinary capital.

Newport, RI (PRWEB) February 18, 2007 -- St. Barts is the Culinary Capital of the Caribbean, as anyone who has been there knows.

Now an association of this French West Indies island's restaurateurs wants to put its own seal of approval on this nomenclature by hosting Gastronomy Week Caribéenne Feb. 19-26 followed by an April 13 and 14 highly exclusive, back-to-back dining extravaganza.

Wimco, the leading luxury villa rental company for St Barts villas, is enthusiastically supporting these events that will showcase the island's best chefs and their signature dishes.

"St. Barts is increasingly well known for its fine dining. Many of our clients tell us that one of the primary reasons they go to St. Barts, in addition to enjoying the privacy of a villa vacation, is to dine well, even very well, even very well," says Stiles Bennet, Wimco's Director of Marketing.

The Feb. 19-26 event occurs for seven nights in 20 restaurants, and each restaurant will produce an entrée sourced entirely from nearby islands and local waters.

Then on April 13 and 14, St. Barts' most accomplished chefs will collaborate to produce two dining extravaganzas showcasing the high quality and appealing variety of gourmet dishes available in the island's restaurants. A selection of fine wines will be presented to accompany the dinners which will be reviewed by an international panel of eight judges composed of world renowned chefs and food critics from top publications. The restaurant association will sell tickets for approximately $250 each for each evening to help defray expenses. The first dinner will be served at the Guanahani Hotel on April 13 and the second at the Eden Rock Hotel on April 14.
