Food lovers and the general public are invited to come out and have all five senses stimulated, as Antigua’s culinary experts square off in three exciting competitions. Chefs from several of the island’s top resorts and restaurants will prepare delectable dishes using local mangoes and The Antigua Black Pineapple in the Chefs Competition on Saturday.
The highlight of the two-day affair will be the exciting Bartenders Competition, where Antigua’s finest “mixologists” will dazzle the judges with their showmanship, as they attempt to concoct the tastiest drinks using the local fruit.
On Sunday July 10th, the top chefs and bartenders from Saturday will participate in the final round of the competition. 

Additionally, there will be a showdown of the country’s premier pastry chefs, who will vie to create the most eye catching and mouth-watering mango-pineapple desserts. A panel of judges, featuring an international celebrity judge will grade the entrants on such aspects as cooking technique, creativity and taste.
 
Patrons will be able to sample the dishes and purchase other mango-pineapple creations as they enjoy the festive atmosphere and music by Chickie’s Hi Fi.
