Cayman Cookout, January '09, With Eric Ripert
Ah, the Cayman Islands, January 16-19, 2009, with top food and liquor to boot. The Cayman Cookout is just what you'll want come frosty winter. The "cookout" is the Caribbean's premier food, wine and rum festival, and is hosted by Eric Ripert, known for Le Bernadin. A weekend of events, tastings, demonstrations and wine seminars from Ripert and his friends, including wine expert Anthony Giglio, fill four delicious days. The cookout is set in the the Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, home of Ripert's acclaimed restaurant Blue.
