‘Cultural Bites’ builds on Restaurant Weeks

Two Bermudian chefs, fresh off their collaboration with international culinary star Eric Adjepong, are launching a weekly culinary experience to carry forward January's sell-out Restaurant Weeks dinner.

After teaming up with Mr Adjepong of Bravo TV's Top Chef fame to host Bermuda's Culture & Heritage Dinner at Fourways Restaurant, Jaelen Steede and Raeven White of Hamilton's BermyEats Café are serving up a new food-and-wine experience for local and visiting foodies.

Kicking off on Friday at the Chancery Lane venue, “Cultural Bites” is an infusion of popular courses from January's history-inspired dinner, served canape-style with freshly-harvested foods and locally-sourced ingredients, the Bermuda Tourism Authority said.

Mr Steede said: “We want to create a food happy hour focusing on the best dishes from our cultural collaboration with Chef Eric.”

He added: “What January's dinner showed us is that people look for new and unique food experiences that tell Bermuda's stories. As BermyEats Café is a place that connects people to Bermudian-inspired dishes, we will transform our space into an energetic atmosphere all about our food culture.”

During its ninth winter-season edition of Restaurant Weeks, the BTA worked with restaurant partners, farmers and local entrepreneurs to re-imagine and deliver new food experiences in unique locations throughout the island, the organisation said.

Glenn Jones, chief experience development officer at the BTA, said: “Our collaboration with Chef Eric and local tastemakers created an unforgettable food experience, but the true win for us as experience developers is transforming the magic of that evening into a legacy that benefits Bermudian entrepreneurs.”

Cultural Bites takes place at BermyEats, Chancery Lane, Hamilton every Friday from 5.30pm until 8.30pm in March, and includes a live local DJ and wine to complete the new food happy-hour event.

Tickets are $35 per person and available at ptix.bm/culturalbites.
