Minority Chef Summit in Bahamas brings together top culinary talent
Published on February 25, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

NASSAU, Bahamas -- Nassau, Bahamas, is set to become a culinary Mecca on May 1-4, 2014, when the inaugural Minority Chef Summit rolls into town. The four-day event will showcase the talents and creativity of some of the leading minority professionals in the food and beverage industry worldwide.

Taking place at the College of The Bahamas, the summit will include an array of seminars, hands-on classes and competitions, as well as a culinary market. The Minority Chef Summit is a conference for culinarians to come together to network, educate and to support the minority culinary community.

The Minority Chef Summit was founded by chef and chocolatier Erika Davis, who formerly served as creative director for Graycliff Chocolatier in Nassau, and is a highly-celebrated chef within the culinary field. Having been in the chocolate-making industry for over 22 years, and recognized as one of the United States’ top chefs, Davis has received many noteworthy commendations, among which include:

• Competing Chef “Top Chef Just Desserts” inaugural show by Bravo
• First Black female chef to receive Detroit’s Chef of the Month
• Showcased in several culinary magazines and invitational culinary events
• Featured chef of “Sunday Dinner” promotion with Publix Grocery Stores
• Chocolatier Ambassador of Cocoa Barry Chocolates

Davis’s time spent in Nassau working with and teaching aspiring Bahamian chefs lies at the heart of her inspiration for creating the Minority Chef Summit. As she says, “This is a unique opportunity to come together, recognizing not only our individual craft, but the true excellence of our culinary community.”

The 2014 Minority Chef Summit keynote speaker is Chef Jeff Henderson, an award-winning chef, public speaker and author of the New York Times Best Seller Cooked.
