British Virgin Islands Cooking

stpeterIf you’ve ever wanted a guest chef not only to cook for you and a select group of your friends, but to show you exactly how he prepares the private dinner, this is the jaunt for you, Road Trips Foodies!

Gather your crew and head to the Peter Island Resort & Spa in the British Virgin Islands for the week of May 8-15, 2010. The first guest chef is Christopher Ivens-Brown, who makes his home in Charlotte, North Carolina. He’ll be giving a private cooking class to a group of 20 in Falcon’s Nest, a villa boasting a state-of-the-art commercial kitchen. Diners will also be ferried via a private boat to the neighboring island of Tortola to tour Paraquite Bay, a working agricultural farm, to purchase local ingredients for an evening feast.

The culinary event is priced at $575 per person or $1150 per couple (plus 18% gratuity) based on a five-night stay at the resort, and includes the following: a meet-the-chef party in Falcon’s Nest Villa with sunset cocktails and canapés, a visit to Paraquite Bay to purchase local produce for the cooking class to follow, a gourmet evening with a five-course wine dinner — and more gourmet goodies.

Can’t make it in May? Look for the next guest chef event to be held during the week of July 4, 2010, featuring barbecue!

Here’s an idea of what they’ll be cooking!
