“Last year’s Anguilla Culinary Experience was a great success. It was a joy to share Anguilla’s history, hospitality and incredible cuisine with new visitors and long-time island fans, while also raising funds to support the island’s next generation of chefs. ACE was a labor of love with many people contributing their time and talents. This May, we look forward to showing once again why Anguilla is the Culinary Capital of the Caribbean,” said Wendy Freeman, co-chair, Anguilla Culinary Experience.


The festival kicks off May 3 with a party at Aurora Anguilla Resort & Golf Club at the resort’s D Richard’s steakhouse. Guests delight in tastings from the property’s six diverse restaurants as well as signature cocktails made with ingredients grown at the on-site organic farm and on hydroponic gardens.

Local and international chefs come together at Anguilla’s resorts, villas and restaurants during this four-day festival. Guests have the opportunity to experience cooking demonstrations, dinners from celebrity chefs, rum tastings and more. Last year’s popular Beach BBQ and Basket Battle also return this year. Local grill masters serve up classic and modern barbecue dishes at the Beach BBQ. During the Basket Battle, the Anguilla National Culinary Team cook head-to-head in a mystery basket competition.


Tickets go on sale soon.
