The Local Nevisian chefs take the spotlight - Each of the selected Nevisian chefs will provide samples of their favorite mango dish, in fact this tasting runs for the entire event.

Master Classes 
Iron Chef Judy Joo – This is a mango cook-along class with a true mistress of the culinary world. Here's the opportunity to take a master class with an Iron Chef, and it's bound to sell out quickly.  

Chef Llewellyn - Local Nevisian chef and seasoned veteran of the Nevis Mango & Food Festival. In 2013 he and his mango pepper sauce were the stars of a hit international FedEx commercial. The experience of this mango master class will be special and is worthy of your swift action to book now.

Mango Tasting Sessions
Nevis has more varieties of mangos than most people knew existed. They all taste different, have individual properties, and stories. In these sessions participants are guided as they taste each selected mango variety. Come out of this experience with more knowledge and a better appreciation for the mango. It is not a wine tasting, it is better

Cooking Competition
This year (3) restaurants will compete in the finals and the competition will be intense. The atmosphere and crowd engagement is reminiscent of a sporting event. This is definitely a crowd pleaser. All three visiting celebrity chefs will judge the competition.

Season passes are available along with tickets and reservations to individual events and special dinners. Live music and tastings are all part of the weekend.
