Cayman Culinary Society Trade Show

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Welcome to the 21st Annual Cayman Culinary Society Trade Show and Cooking Competition!  Where the freebies are scrumptious…

…and the competition is fierce!

I got invited to cover the event for my day job but I took my camera and snapped some yummy pictures to share with you!  Vendors from across the United States set up some pretty snazzy booths at the Ritz-Carlton to woo local chefs and restaurant managers into using their products.

There was seafood.

And veggies. And great googly moogly, the meat!

The ‘wow’ factor was high as you headed toward the dessert displays.

There was even a tribute to Cayman’s most iconic creature: the sea turtle.

You name it, they had it.  Looking brilliant, smelling wonderful and just begging to be nibbled.

And the best part?  Tasting is mandatory 🙂
