Bermuda’s Culture & Heritage Dinner with Eric Adjepong of Top Chef
January 24, 2020
Top Chef season 16 contestant Eric Adjepong will unveil a special meal inspired by the island’s African Diaspora – particularly Bermuda’s Cobbs Hill Methodist Church, a still-thriving sanctuary built by slaves and freed men in the early nineteenth century. Hosted by the Newstead Belmont Hills Golf Resort & Spa, this once-in-a-lifetime culinary event will showcase ingredients from Africa, the Caribbean, the southeastern United States and Bermuda itself. Tickets for this special dinner will go on sale in November. The hotel and dinner package for this event can be reserved here.
Transport Museum Fish Fry
February 2, 2020
Fish are harvested from Bermuda waters year-round, so why not a fish fry in February? The curator of Bermuda’s spectacular Transportation Museum in Royal Naval Dockyard welcomes visitors and locals for a summer-like fish fry to mark the finale of Bermuda Restaurant Weeks 2020. Some of the best fish preparers on the island will be on-hand, right next to some of the best local brewers and cocktail makers. In a rare treat, some of the stunning vehicles inside the museum will be brought out onto the street for photos and demo drives around the centuries-old buildings. A fish fry and transportation history merged together unexpectedly, splendidly.
