Devour! The Beach

A Food & Wine Festival

From March 26-29, 2014, Green Turtle Cay, Abaco will play host to the first annual Devour! The Beach Food and Wine Festival. The festival will hold three days of extraordinary culinary events led by international celebrity chefs from Chicago, Las Vegas, Cleveland, Dallas, Ottawa and Halifax. Food and wine lovers from all over will also enjoy sessions hosted by a Master of Wine from the UK.

Two nights will feature themed gala dinners from classic French cuisine to the best in pan-American cooking. The days will have various activities for the culinary and wine enthusiast, from fishing and diving, to chef beach cookouts, to wine and culinary demonstrations. Visitors to the island will have countless opportunities to not only enjoy the food of some of their favorite international chefs, but also the chance to relax and play alongside them in a famously hospitable, tropical environment, that was once featured on Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.

You are not going to want to miss this inaugural event!


And now for a little menu action to whet your appetite…  there’s a full meal with your name on it at every turn!
