Top Chef's Tiffany Derry's 5 course dinner kicked off the St. Croix Food and Wine Experience. From a diver scallop surf and turf to a sashimi style ceviche!
The U.S. Virgin Islands Department of Tourism brought Tasteologie out to for the St. Croix Food and Wine Experience, and upon arrival was dinner by Chef Tiffany Derry, amazing dishes, each paired with a great wine from Rudy von Strasser. This was the kick off of the St. Croix Food and Wine Experience, the annual week long celebration founded by island restauranteurs Kelly Odom and Katherine Pugliese. A series of tastings, farms visits, dinners and events, it serves to bring together the local food scene and help join it with the national one. Celebrity chefs and vintners arrived on the island with an astonishing amount of food and began, with the help of local chefs and restaurants, to cook up a storm. All proceeds benefit the St. Croix Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to strengthening this close knit community.
