Cooking Caribbean with BVI Chef Davide Pugliese

Chef Davide PuglieseChef Davide Pugliese needs no introduction to many of you who have traveled to our sister property, Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina in the British Virgin Islands. His home and culinary retreat known to many as the “House With No Walls” or Wali Nikiti sits on top of Scrub Island and is marveled by many island guests who visit the secluded, pristine North Beach.

On Sunday, October 18, Chef Davide Pugliese will make a special visit the Epicurean Theatre to showcase his incredible Caribbean cuisine. Chef Davide wasn’t born in the Caribbean, as his roots stem from his birth home in Torino, and he did most of his growing up in Firenze (Florence to you and me), Italy. It is there where he learned the secret to fragrant and flavorsome dishes while attending what he calls the best culinary school in the world, his mother’s kitchen of course!

BeachFor those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Davide, you are in for a real treat. He is not only well-traveled and an accomplished chef, but his experiences and stories will delight and entertain you for hours. He is famous in the British Virgin Islands and his passion for food will inspire you and enchant your palate.
