Chef Eric Ripert on Cayman’s local food scene

Cayman Cookout’s headline chef Eric Ripert might be fronting up a restaurant at the Ritz and a food festival this weekend (16 – 20 January,) but he said that was not necessarily what Cayman’s food scene does best.

Mr. Ripert said part of Cayman’s charm to him was the island’s natural beauty and some of its local delicacies.

“You can have some street food that is delicious, starting with the turtle soup,” he listed.

He went on: “Or the patties that are absolutely delicious. Sometimes I have stopped with the fishermen and I have some fish with them.”

And if that story has whetted your appetite, the Cayman Cookout is running at the Ritz until Sunday (20 January.)
