Some of the Caribbeanå‘s leading chefs will showcase their culinary talent and flair, as well as some of their favourite dishes at two consumer events at Caribbean Week in New York.
Renowned chefs from world-class resorts in Aruba, the British Virgin Islands, Grenada, Jamaica, Puerto Rico and Trinidad and Tobago will be in town to spice up the city with distinctive Caribbean cuisine.
On Tuesday, June 3 and Thursday, June 5, 2003, these chefs will prepare some of their favorite and most sought after recipes at the Macy’s Herald Square store on 34th Street. The events will begin at noon in the Macy’s Cellar.
