Saint Lucia’s Culinary Ambassador, Chef Nina Compton, continues to wow the world with her culinary skills and exploits.
In September 2015, Nina’s New Orleans Restaurant, “Compere Lapin” was named one of the “Best New Restaurants Around the World” by the Huffington Post.
The article which appeared on www.huffingtonpost.com states,
“Compère Lapin… marries the flavors of her native St. Lucia, her experience cooking French and Italian cuisine, and ingredients from the surrounding Gulf area.”
Prime Minister, Hon. Dr. Kenny D. Anthony has extended congratulations to the Ambassador on her achievement. Dr. Anthony said,
“Congratulations to Chef Nina on such a remarkable achievement! Nina continues to make us proud. I am especially impressed with how deliberate she is in incorporating Saint Lucian living and our unique experiences in her endeavours.
“Her love for our country and pride in her heritage is all over her work. From the name of her restaurant to the offerings at her tables, she is a proud Saint Lucian and represents us well.
“I wish her continued success. This is but the beginning of great achievements.”
Nina’s restaurant, Compere Lapin, was opened in New Orleans in June 2015, after emerging Fan Favorite and placing Second in Season 11 of Top Chef.
