MANGO PINEAPPLE MENU 2010 AWARDS TO CHEFS AND BARTENDERS.
Thursday 19th August 2010

Antigua Magic Mango & Pineapple contest  Gallery

The Mango Pineapple Menu competition was introduced in 2006 with one simple goal: to promote the use of Christian Valley mangoes in hotel and restaurant cuisine in Antigua and Barbuda. Today that goal seems much too simple – the competition has become the springboard for young professionals in the hospitality industry to launch themselves on to the regional and international competition circuit and to become known beyond Antigua and Barbuda for excellence in their professions.

The recipes from this year’s and the previous year’s Mango Pineapple Menu Competitions will be published in the coffee table Recipe and Guide book called Table Manners A Culinary Review of Hospitality in Antigua & Barbuda, produced and published by the Food & Drink Guide. The retrospective culinary recipe book will feature some of the most beautiful and innovative food and drink recipes designed by Antigua & Barbuda’s best chefs and bartenders. This book will be the envy of all Caribbean tourist destinations, giving a snapshot overview of our islands culinary progress over the previous six years to date. In addition to full color recipes and outstanding photography there will also be restaurant and chef profiles from Antigua & Barbuda’s famous venues.
