The Anguilla Culinary Experience (ACE) is a new, five-day international festival.
This May, talented chefs from Anguilla and around the world will 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!

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.
