GASTRONOMY FESTIVAL: The winners are now (almost) known


If we will have to wait until Tuesday evening to find out the big winner elected “Best Table 2022”, the prize-giving ceremony for the Gastronomy Festival competition took place on Sunday evening at the gastronomy village in Marigot.

For 12 days, the rhythm was sustained for the chefs, the organizers and the participants, the Gastronomy Festival will close its second edition this Tuesday, November 22 with the big gala evening and the designation of the Best Table 2022 after a competition at the blind between the winners of the four categories. But before coming to the prize list, let's go back to a few moments when the workshops multiplied, whether, for example, in Orient Bay during the mixology workshop with Ninon Fauvarque, on the Marigot seafront with the sensational duo Laurent Huguet and Alain Warth or during numerous demonstrations such as that of chef Maame Boakye at the village of gastronomy, a village inaugurated last Friday evening in the presence of all the chefs, Valérie Damaseau and Aïda Weinum, respectively president and director of the Office of Tourism, of Silveria Jacobs, Prime Minister of Sint Maarten and her team dedicated to tourism. With free access for all, the gastronomy village brought together food lovers and the curious, in a festive atmosphere with local cuisine stands and musical entertainment during the three intense days. The three finalists of the mixology competition and the four winners of each category will be decided this evening. Suspense, suspense... _Vx
