 International Chefs

Thomas also announced the names of this year’s International chef line-up.

“We welcome the opportunity to once again partner with Food Network’s Chef Anne Burrell from the US, who has been with us for multiple festivals and is a fan favourite. We have also partnered with UK MasterChef, Chef Shelina Permalloo and from Colombia Chef Juan Diego,” said Thomas.

She explained that the US and UK represent the largest percentage of visitors to Barbados and therefore, believed that this will be a great selling point as they marketed the Festival in these markets.

In fact, the BTMI will be showcasing the Barbados Food and Rum Festival at the upcoming National Geographic Food Festival in London from July 15-17. Two Barbadian mixologists and one chef will be on display, accompanied by UK Chef for the Festival, Shelina Permalloo.

The Director explained that the partnership with Chef Juan Diego was integral as the BTMI continued to focus on further establishing Barbados’ presence in the Latin American market, which is considered a new and emerging market. For the BTMI, this partnership and setting up an office in Panama will help the organisation to further solidify its presence in Latin America.  

Tickets for this year’s Barbados Food and Rum Festival go on sale to the public on July 14th 2023 on www.foodandrum.com.
