Bermuda preps for foodie event

Bermuda holds its annual food festival next month in the capital Hamilton.

 

Taste of Bermuda, a unique culinary weekend that will have taste buds popping at various events across the city from Oct. 11-13, despite a brush with a hurricane this week.

 

Hurricane Humberto knocked out the power for some 80 percent of Bermuda's electricity customers. Thankfully, no one died when the Category 3 storm passed close to the island Wednesday night.

 

The annual Bacardi Bartending Competition will start proceedings on Friday, Oct. 11 with contestants creating Bermuda-themed elixirs from a box of ingredients.

 

Those Bermuda bartenders looking to add some showmanship to their style can learn from one of the best when international flair superstar Matt Conway leads a Masterclass in Flair Bartending à la Tom Cruise in Cocktail the next day.

 

A Dining-in-the-Dark pop-up restaurant will have guests taking their senses to the next level to create an unprecedented special evening.

 

A bespoke luxury picnic will see Barr’s Bay Park transformed into an intimate gathering place with posh picnic fare and endless glasses of vino. A grand Tasting Village on Front Street will feature vendors and city restaurants delivering sample-sized offerings to suit palettes.

 

A Bubble Garden will showcase all things carbonated and a culinary stage will cater to amateur chef competitions and live cooking demos with a special appearance by Instagram food star Jasmine Rezonable from Get Caked LA flipping up unbelievable pancake art. A kids’ zone, DJs and interactive installations will keep the Village buzzing into night fall as Hamilton welcomes culinary cruise liner Viking Sun to port.
