January events – Cayman Cookout and Taste of Cayman

Each year, food frenzy hits the Cayman Islands and brings with it an array of food, wine, world famous chefs and locally sourced ingredients.

Artisanal Aperture

The Cayman Cookout is an annual four-day celebration of food and wine running from 10th – 14th January 2018, with next year’s event being extra special as it celebrates its tenth birthday. Originally created back in 2008 by Eric Ripert, signature chef at Blue restaurant, the event is now hosted at the Ritz-Carlton hotel.

This beautiful beachfront event hosts a roster of world famous chefs for dinners, live demonstrations, talks and more. Enjoy barefoot barbecues that allow you to venture along the sand as you sample delicious dishes inspired by ingredients from across the three islands and indulge in wine tastings from world-famous experts.


With ornate ice sculptures, beach bashes, high quality wine and even better company, the Cayman Cookout is a must if you visit the island in January.

Rounding off a foodie month will be the Taste of Cayman, taking place on January 27th, 2018. Celebrating its 30th year, participating restaurants and bars offer attendees a diverse selection of food and drink, infusing traditional Caymanian flavours with international flair.

If you can’t join us this January, we hope to see you for 2019’s events.
