Taste of Bermuda tickets available

The City of Hamilton announces that tickets are now on sale on PTIX for Taste of Bermuda, a unique culinary weekend that will have your taste buds popping at various events across the City, October 11th - 13th.

The annual Bacardi Bartending Competition will kick things off on Friday, October 11th 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, on Saturday, October 12th.

A Dining-in-the-Dark pop-up restauraunt on Friday and Saturday, October 11th and 12th, will have guests taking their senses to the next level as taste and sight, or lackthereof, combine to create an unprescedented special evening.

Event Project Manager at the City, Jessica Astwood, said of the sensory awareness experience, “We're excited to be working with Take Five Limited to provide an incredible gastronomic experience. We'll test the theory that food tastes better when you can't see it. First class service will partner with an educational component to the night as guests will learn how the visually impaired have to navigate their way around the island. The City is quite proud to be able to donate proceeds from Dining in the Dark to Vision Bermuda's (formely Bermuda Society for the Blind) advancement of their sensory programs.”

A bespoke luxury picnic evening by EETTAFEL Bermuda on Saturday, October 12th will have Barr's Bay Park transformed into an intimate gathering place with posh picnic fare and endless glasses of vino. A grand Tasting Village, scheduled for Sunday, October 13th on Front Street will feature vendors and City restaurants delivering sample-sized offerings to suit your palette. 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 L.A. flipping up unbelievable pancake art. A kid zone, DJ's, table-scapes and interative installations will see the Village into the evening hours as Hamilton welcomes culinary cruiseliner, Viking Sun, to port. Admisison to the Village is free and foodies can purchase tokens redeemable for sample-sized fare.
