2024 Nassau Paradise Island Wine and Food Festival

Wine and food festivals are an excellent way to gather culinary experts, spirits producers, vendors, and consumers, so they could meet and exchange ideas and experiences.

Last week, I participated in the second annual Nassau Paradise Island Wine and Food Festival in the Bahamas. It was held at Atlantis Paradise Island, an oceanside resort and home of the world's largest open-air marine habitat. The five day event was presented by Atlantis and featured tastings, wine pairings, culinary demonstrations and classes, happy hours, and meals led by various experts including Nobu Matsuhisa, Michael White, Robert Irvine, Andrew Zimmern, master mixologist Tony Abou-Ganim, and others. While there, I hosted two events - a sunset cocktail hour and dinner and a mid-afternoon garden party luncheon.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
