    Ripert, Ricard and Pétanque

    It is only in its second year, but playing pétanque with the chefs is hands-down one of my favourite Cayman Cookout events. It's great seeing the chefs out of the kitchen and spending time with their friends and fans in a casual fun setting.

    Ultimate Wine Fair & Auction

    This signature Cayman Cookout event is one of the most popular.  Sure it has a great price, live music, and the entertaining Vicki Wheaton hosting, but its popularity stems from the amount of wine tastings, yummy culinary bites and the silent and live auction items.

    Ole Jose

    As much as I love José Andrés with his animated and friendly personality, I could never understand why this event was one of the first to sell out year after year.  All I really knew was that he always made a unique entrance to the event and made some of his delicious paella.  So this year I finally got the chance to see what all the fuss was about.
