Barbados will be the centre of attention during the first weekend in May. Barbadian culture and cuisine will be the order of the day at Taste Of Barbados, a culturally authentic experience taking place on South Molton Street, London from Friday 5 – Sunday 7 May.

This three-day extravaganza, brought to you by Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc, will celebrate Bajan culture, cuisine, music, art and of course, rum – all of which centres on embracing life and happiness. Barbados is enveloped in a raucous festival fever throughout the year with two popular festival highlights; Crop Over Festival in July & August and the world famous Food and Rum Festival in November.

Taste of Barbados will provide a Caribbean flavour and provide a teaser of what the stunning island has to offer. In addition, visitors will have the chance to win holidays to Barbados (including flights and accommodation) with daily competitions. “Our island is a treasure trove of wonderful and very diverse events and activities which cater to all ages. Taste of Barbados is a special event designed to not only showcase our local culture and gastronomy but also to give potential UK visitors an insight into some of our exciting upcoming events on the island,” said Cheryl Carter, UK Director of the Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc.

“South Molton Street and the surrounding streets in Mayfair are iconic shopping destinations featuring an international mix of stores and restaurants. We are delighted to partner with leading brands to create this event and look forward to an exciting weekend.” A selection of Barbados’ world-class chefs will be descending upon South Molton Street to cook up a storm of wonderful Bajan flavours and tantalising dishes. This will include cookery demonstrations from top Barbadian chefs, such as Michelin-trained Jason Howard and Anthony Cumberbatch. Additionally, there will be the Iron Chef Culinary Cook off on Sunday at 1pm when these two chefs go head to head preparing their own creative masterpieces right before your eyes.
