If you’re a foodie, most likely you were like me on Tuesday night in front of the television or mobile device watching the newest episode of Chopped on The Food Network.
This episode was especially exciting as the theme was “Cooking Caribbean” and featured three chefs from the Caribbean.

Everyone’s gearing up for Carnival season throughout the Caribbean ensuring bodies are “tight” for costumes and fete outfits. And while we at Eat The Caribbean love a great fete, we are truly looking forward to all of the great food, wine and rum festivals scheduled.

This list features just a few food festivals, so it can be considered “ETC’s Food Festival Wish List 2016”.
