Anguilla Culinary Experience The second-annual Anguilla Culinary Experience (ACE) is happening May 3-6, 2023! During this four-day international festival, talented chefs from Anguilla and around the world will once again showcase why Anguilla is the Culinary Capital of the Caribbean through curated epicurean experiences at world-class resorts, villas and restaurants that draw on the island’s rich history, creativity and fresh farm- and sea-to-table ingredients. If you appreciate food as a chance to celebrate life, make friends and create lasting memories, we hope you will join us at ACE 2023! Seaside Resort Parties Mingle with your fellow ACE guests and our chefs, as you enjoy creative cocktails, delectable refreshments and great music at Anguilla’s award-winning luxury beach oases. Exclusive Chefs’ Dinners Local and guest chefs will collaborate to present exclusive, multi-course epicurean feasts at some of Anguilla’s most luxurious private villas and 5-star resorts. Restaurant Nights Our guest chefs team up with local chef talent to prepare special Prix Fixe menus at select award-winning restaurants. Enjoy the freshest food, as our chefs will be serving from Anguilla’s cornucopia of farm-to-table, and sea-to-table ingredients. Island Experiences Explore Anguilla through curated small group experiences. Harvest salt from a natural salt pond, sample traditional bush tea at a local organic farm, pick fresh mangos, fish offshore and more.
