The second-annual Anguilla Culinary Experience (ACE) is happening May 3-6, 2023!
During this four-day international festival, talented chefs from Anguilla and around the world will once again showcase why Anguilla is the Culinary Capital of the Caribbean through curated epicurean experiences at world-class resorts, villas and restaurants that draw on the island’s rich history, creativity and fresh farm- and sea-to-table ingredients.
If you appreciate food as a chance to celebrate life, make friends and create lasting memories, we hope you will join us at ACE 2023!
ACE kicks off with an Opening Night Party at Aurora Anguilla Resort & Golf Club’s D Richard’s steakhouse. Embark on a tour of tastes from Aurora’s six deliciously diverse restaurants as you sip signature cocktails featuring ingredients from Aurora’s onsite hydroponic gardens and organic farm.
Local and guest chefs will collaborate to present exclusive, multi-course epicurean feasts. Join Chef Jennifer Carroll of Top Chef fame and Chef Emanuele Sabatini for a cooking demo and Dinner Extravaganza on the beach at Zemi Beach House.
Chef Daniele Lippi of Italy’s 2 Michelin-starred Acquolina and Chef Dario Schiavo will alternate courses in a Beyond Appearances dinner at Savi Beach Club. Veya Chef Carrie Bogar and guest chef will showcase her cuisine of the sun at Villa Alegria.
Chef Michele Greggio of Aurora Anguilla will present an intimate Farm-to-Table dinner on the Hydroponic lawn highlighting ingredients from the resort’s onsite farm.
Our guest chefs team up with local chef talent to prepare special Prix Fixe menus at select award-winning restaurants.
Enjoy the freshest food, as our chefs will be serving from Anguilla’s cornucopia of farm-to-table, and sea-to-table ingredients.
Explore Anguilla through curated small group experiences. Harvest salt from a natural salt pond, learn how to make Johnny Cakes, tour the historic Valley and hike to the famous West End Arch.
Cap off ACE with some fun in the sun at a traditional Anguilla beach barbeque.
Compare local grillers' signature sauces and techniques as you sample fresh-grilled fish and succulent ribs or chicken, all washed down with a cold beer or crisp wine.
Then watch our award-winning Anguilla Culinary Team go head-to-head in our Battle-on-the-Beach mystery basket cooking competition.
Retreat to the famous Rhum Room at Zemi Beach after hours as part of your VIP package experience.
Savor selections from the resort’s more than 100 small-batch, single-estate rums that recall the Caribbean’s 18th century sugar cane plantations.
A critical part of our mission is to support and inspire the next generation of Anguillian chefs. We believe that the way to maintain and continue Anguilla’s legacy of producing top talent, is to give these opportunities to aspiring young people.
We’ve committed a portion of all the proceeds of the Anguilla Culinary Experience to support culinary and hospitality training for young Anguillians.
