Meet Chef Bowe, Executive Chef at the top-rated Graycliff Restaurant in historic downtown Nassau, and go behind-the-scenes to learn how to cook a 3 course authentic Bahamian feast! Whether you’re a cooking enthusiast or a novice, this hands-on cooking class promises to be fun and entertaining.
We’ll begin with a refreshing welcome drink to get you into the spirit of the islands and fuel you for your time in the kitchen.
In each class, you will arrive to find an array of colorful, fresh ingredients. You will assist Chef in preparing recipes for your meal, learn basic cooking techniques and an understanding of essential Bahamian ingredients. Chef Bowe will assign each member of the group a specific task and provide individual attention. Food preparation will take approximately 75 minutes.
After the prepping portion is completed, you will be led into a private dining room to sit down and enjoy the beautiful Graycliff Restaurant ambiance and the dishes you’ve prepared, alongside your tour guide and class companions. Your choice of wine or a non-alcoholic beverage with the meal is included.
In addition to a full belly, you’ll also receive our Eat Nassau Dining Guide: a printed guide full of insider’s tips about where to eat in on the island as well as must-eat local foods you’ll want to sample during your visit. Plus, we’ll email you all the recipes to remind you how to recreate Chef Bowe’s delicious Bahamian dishes in your own home!
