First ever BVI Wine & Food Festival

I just came back from the British Virgin Islands – besides swimming with sharks, I was there for the first Food and Wine Festival in BVI.

For three days, visitors and residents alike will be able to sample, learn, feast or lounge through our menu of a la carte events.
Oh, and it was such a wonderful event, surprisingly though, even being on tropical islands, it was really hard to find fruits and vegetables. You see the locals, unfortunately for me, eat mostly fried foods and goat.

I got lucky because one of the chefs, Cesare Casella, who was participating on the event saved the day!

The highlight of the trip, however, was the Baths of Virgin Gorda
