Following a most successful inaugural staging, the Jamaica Observer Table Talk Food Awards, The Cayman Islands edition presented by The , returned on Thursday, November 10, to The Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort for its second iteration. This time around was definitely the charm! Guests were met on arrival with flutes of Champagne and indulged in melt-in-your-mouth hors d’oeuvres — a foretaste of the culinary offerings to come. The cocktail hour over, it was now time to step on the red carpet and slip into seats for the awards presentation.

Cayman Islands Food Awards chief judge — who was among the speakers of the evening — elicited nostalgia as she took guests down memory lane, harking back to the early days of the restaurant industry on the island. There were nods of agreement at the mention of Cayman Island’s first upscale restaurant, notably Grand Old House.

The final award presented, it was now time for the after-party, which was held at the Verandah beach house. Here guests enjoyed fare from The Brasserie, Tukka Restaurant and Bar, Welly’s Cool Spot Restaurant and Bar, celebrated Jamaican chef Jaqui Tyson for the Best Dressed Chicken, , and menu selections from The Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort.

The yellowfin tuna poke and chicken liver pâté from The Brasserie – multi-Table-Talk-Food-award-winning restaurant – was delish. For Welly’s Cool Spot Restaurant and Bar, the helpings of their traditional curried goat could not suffice. The flavour combinations of the pepperwood-roasted chicken and pork from Peppers Smokehouse, as well as their signature succulent pork ribs, tantalised the taste buds.
