Celebrity chefs turn up the heat at Barbados' Cobbler's Cove

Barbados' Cobbler's Cove resort, the island's only Relais and Chateaux hotel, has launched a visiting chef's programme for the New Year showcasing the culinary talents of big-name chefs such as MasterChef UK 2010 winner Dhruv Baker and award-winning South African chef Garth Stroebel.

Celebrity chefs turn up the heat at Barbados' Cobbler's Cove

The luxury Cobbler's Cove Resort, on the west coast of the Caribbean island of Barbados, is treating its guests to a season of special meals cooked by celebrity chefs. The programme of visiting chefs, which begins in the New Year, will see MasterChef winner Dhruv Baker and award-winning South African chef Garth Stroebel take up residencies at the hotel to share their gourmet cuisine with guests.

The chefs will cook four dinners each in the hotel's Camelot restaurant, which was recently awarded Best Restaurant in Barbados 2014 by the Barbados Hotel Association. The gourmet restaurant is headed up by Barbados-born executive chef Michael Harrison who trained under Michel Roux Jr at Le Gavroche in London and has cooked for VIP guests such as the Beckhams and Salma Hayek. They will build on the already successful reputation of Cobbler's Cove as a foodie haven and will complement Chef Michael's gourmet island tours, which are offered to guests at the resort.

Renowned for his innovative modern South African cuisine, Garth Stroebel will take up residence at Cobbler's Cove from 28 - 31 January, 2015, while former MasterChef champion Dhruv Baker will be cooking at the restaurant from 25 - 28 March, 2015. Described by MasterChef judge Greg Wallace as having 'the palate of an angel', Dhruv has worked with some of the world's top chefs including Michel Roux Jr and Tom Kitchin.

Cobbler's Cove is the only property in Barbados to be part of the prestigious Relais and Chateaux collection and is set in a great position along the islands' most sought-after stretch of coastline, with a string of white sand beaches lapped by crystal-clear aquamarine waters. It is one of the Caribbean's best-known luxury hotels, bringing the elegance and charm of an English country house hotel to the tropical landscape of Barbados.
