One date that should be marked in the calendar of any foodie travelling to Barbados this year is the Food & Wine and Rum Festival, which returns to the island from 19 - 22 November 2015.
The event sees some of the world’s top chefs descend on this tiny island, with cooking demonstrations, tasting sessions and glamorous evening parties. Wine experts are also on hand to recommend pairings and explain the different characteristics of each grape, as well as sharing their insider tips on the best vintages to seek out.
Of course, it wouldn’t be an authentically Bajan event without some rum, and you’ll be able to learn all about the history and production of this famous spirit, as well as sampling a few varieties yourself. Just remember, it’s potent stuff!
