About the Event
Chef Castro will take you to Scotland where he first fell in love with cooking while working alongside Chef Colin Watson & Duncan Stewart. For the second course, you will travel to the tropics and get a chance to taste food from Chef Castro’s time with Michael Scott at the Newport Room in Fairmont Bermuda. Next stop is Banff, where you will taste the flavours of Chef Yoshi Chubachi. Finally, the night will end in Victoria, and Chef Castro will prepare two final dishes inspired by Chef Christophe Letard and Chef Takashi.
