Key culinary moments recognised

The Bermuda Tourism Authority paid tribute to the culinary community last night as part of its drive to highlight the Island's food culture.

The event identified three ‘key moments' in the culinary world for 2015 including: Muse winning the people's choice award at restaurant week, Marcus Samuelsson opening his restaurant and Rosa's winning the best fish sandwich competition.

“We didn't only see these as victories for the BTA, but victories for Bermuda as we try to tell our food story when marketing the destination — not unlike New Orleans or Paris or Jamaica,” said Pat Phillip-Fairn, BTA chief product and experiences development officer.

The event was attended by Michael Dunkley, the Premier, and a host restaurant owners and chefs.

Bill Hanbury, the BTA's CEO, hailed the impact of Marcus Samuelsson's new restaurant.

He said: “Marcus' has generated a huge volume of media spotlight around the world. It has focused the world's attention on our food culture.

“Chef Leo Marino and chef Marcus have done truly breath taking things with local favourites.”
