Tobago’s Blue Food Festival returns
The coastal village of Bloody Bay will once again be the destination of choice for epicures as thousands make their way to the community’s recreational grounds for the annual Tobago Blue Food Festival on October 13.
The Blue Food Festival provides a unique twist on the traditional culinary event with a focus on the commonly-used ground provision, dasheen. Low in sodium and gluten-free, the root crop will be the inspiration for 25 cooks who will create dynamic, tantalising dishes that are not only tasty, but healthy as well.
A release from the Tobago House of Assembly (THA) said the Blue Food Festival, which is now in its 15th year, has developed a loyal following of locals, and it continues to intrigue and attract many foreigners interested in sampling the innovative entrees, inventive appetisers, creative desserts and robust liqueurs on sale.
Along with the dasheen cuisine, the event will feature live entertainment and the unique crayfish competition in the nearby Bloody Bay Main River.
The festival is coordinated by the Division of Tourism and Transportation of the THA, in collaboration with the village councils of Bloody Bay, L’Anse Fourmi and Parlatuvier.
The Blue Food Festival remains one of the many initiatives through which the THA increases the island’s visibility in the local, regional and international tourism market, the release said. The annual festival consistently presents an opportunity to promote Destination Tobago, stimulate economic activity within the tourism business unit and showcase to the world the island’s mouth-watering signature delicacies.
