Divi St. Croix all decked out for the St. Croix Food & Wine Experience!

To those of us who grew up in St. Croix, it’s no surprise that our humble home island has become quite celebrated for its gastronomy. People from all over the region, and indeed, many disparate parts of the world, have been drawn here to work in various refining and manufacturing industries over the years. They’ve brought with them their unique cooking traditions, many of which have been adapted to local favorites, creating a dynamic culinary destination any foodie would love.

The best time to experience the best of St. Croix’s vibrant culinary scene: mid-April, during the annual St. Croix Food & Wine Experience.

You may already know of this festival from the cool cookbook that shares its name (BUY IT HERE!). While the book is very special and rewards you with page-after-page of inventive recipes to try, the event is even better, affording attendees with unique culinary experiences to last a lifetime.

Not only do you get to enjoy the best of my home island, and some of the finest cuisine on offer anywhere in the region, but you also get to rub elbows with some seriously high-profile celebrity chefs. Just check out the line-up of gastronomic glitterati on the docket for the 2013 event…

No matter what you like to cook at home, after gleaning a few tips and tricks from these master chefs, as well as the 50+ participating local restaurants, your home-cooking is bound to get kicked up a notch or two.

The 2013 St. Croix Food & Wine Experience will be held April 14-20. As usual, attendees will enjoy a series of gourmet dinners, wine seminars, wine auctions, and the annual culinary competition, A Taste of St. Croix.
