Cayman 27 – ARCHIVE

Experience the Ritz-Carlton: Cayman Cookoff finale this weekend

This Sunday (17 January) two local amateur chefs will go head-to-head, to see who will win the 2016 Cayman Cookoff. The cooking competition began eight years ago, and has been a signature event of the Cayman Cookout festival.

In October/November a call is put out of amateur chefs to take part in the competition. Eight are chosen to go through a series of cook-offs, until the final two are chosen. This year’s finalists are Travis Ritch and Josh Wludyka. The two finalist will make their final meal, live, in front of audience of 500 people, at the Bon Vivant Champagne Brunch. The winner will have the chance to stay at the Ritz-Carlton in New York, and attend the Food & Wine Best Chef reception.

Event organiser, Cynthia Hew of Bon Vivant and Ritz-Carlton Executive Chef Frederic Morineau, says the caliber of cooking goes up each year.
