Having earned the reputation as “the Culinary Capital of the Caribbean,” Grand Cayman and its sister islands, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, offer some of the most exciting and innovative dining scenes in the region. These days, you’ll find a booming farm-to-table movement, as well as a new focus on local sourcing and sustainability. Across the three islands, restaurants are serving up authentic Cayman cuisine showcasing the bounty of their gorgeous terroir, from sun-ripened tomatoes to freshly picked pumpkins. Added to that, the warm weather and sea air also have a way of intensifying flavors making those slow-cooked meals a delight for all the senses.
Cuisine is so much at the forefront in the Cayman Islands that the year even begins with the buzzed-about Cayman Cookout (January 14-17, 2016) featuring host Eric Ripert and a roster of celebrity chefs, such as Anthony Bourdain, José Andrés, and Tom Colicchio, among others. Following up that, the Taste of Cayman food and wine festival happens in February. With so much to eat and do in the Cayman Islands, your first trip is just the appetizer.
