GIS:-The National Culinary Team is Looking Forward to Taking Part in Next Year’s Competition.
Having only recently taken part in this year’s 2017 Taste of The Caribbean Culinary Competition, the national culinary team is looking forward to taking part in next year’s competition and achieving greater feats.
Team coach, Chef Rodroy Thomas, said although the competition was hard, Saint Lucia performed well.
“We managed to get a silver medal for team performance out of 15 different islands, which is quite conmmendable. In the individual competitions – mostly sea food, Chef of the Year, Jr Chef of the Year, chocolate competition, bartender, and pastry chef of the year. Each person was able to win a medal in each category and that was the whole aim of the team, that each person can get a medal to come back home.”
The team coach believes that in returning next year, the team is set to secure further successes.
“Seeing that we are going to be represented by the same team, it will be a much easier process. Choosing a team is a bit challenging so if everyone stays together it will be a seamless process. We just need to include the skills that are needed to perform better the next time around.”
The Taste of the Caribbean competition took place from June 2 – 7 in Miami.
