Barbados back on top at Taste of the Caribbean


Share post:

Barbados has taken the top prize at the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA) Taste of the Caribbean competition which ended minutes ago in Miami.

The team won the coveted Caribbean National Team of the Year dethroning Trinidad and Tobago. Barbados fielded a strong team of two senior chefs, a junior chef, a pastry chef and a bartender to tantalise the judges’ taste buds.

The team was not satisfied with the top prize as they also took bronze in the categories of Caribbean Pastry Chef and Caribbean Junior Chef and silver in Caribbean Chef.

They won gold in Caribbean Bartender of the year and Caribbean National Team before being called back to the podium for the last and grandest prize of Caribbean National Team Of The Year. 

Barbados came out on top on three previous occasions, the last time being 2017, before being beaten by Trinidad last year. They came back with determination this year, adding some fresh talent to the familiar faces, guided by team manager Henderson Butcher.

The team returns home tonight. (NS)
