|Last year's Mango and Food Festival|
Nevis is getting set for its annual "Mango and Food Festival" from July 8-10. This year, the Nevis Mango and Food Festival has a roster of events that will take guests throughout the island and that will feature dinners and cooking demonstrations by two very special European chefs.
On Friday, July 8, the festival kicks off with the "Mango Madness Street Fair" down Main Street in Charlestown, which celebrates all things mango.
There will be displays and sales of mango varieties and food products, cooking demonstrations and tastings, a presentation on how to graft mango trees and lots of music and entertainment.
That evening begins the three-day dining extravaganza with a gourmet mango-themed dinner at Montpelier Plantation & Beach with U.K. "Iron Chef" Judy Joo. A Korean-American French-trained chef based in London, Joo draws from her unique personal and professional experiences, melding tastes from Asia, America and Europe in her recipes.
On Saturday evening, U.K chef Natasha Corrett will prepare a dinner appropriately held at Four Seasons Mango Restaurant. Corrett is author of the bestselling book, “Honestly Healthy: Eat with Your Body in Mind, the Alkaline Way.”
Sunday afternoon, visitors will enjoy a "Nevisian Chefs Mango Feast" on beautiful Oualie Beach, where authentic Nevisian mango dishes will be prepared and served by some of the best local chefs on Nevis.
