Top Chef season 16 contestant Eric Adjepong had something special planned for his last meal on the blockbuster Bravo TV show: a culinary journey that would tell the story of the trans-Atlantic trade of enslaved individuals. But to the shock of millions of viewers, the Ghanaian American kitchen wizard was eliminated just before the finals, leaving his vision unfulfilled. Adjepong hasn't given up on showing how influential Africa's culinary heritage has been on the world, however.
During Bermuda Restaurant Weeks in January 2020, Eric will unveil a special meal inspired by the island's African Diaspora particularly Bermuda's Cobbs Hill Methodist Church, a still-thriving sanctuary built by enslaved and freed men in the moonlight in 1827. With accommodations at Newstead Belmont Hills Golf Resort & Spa and the event taking place at Fourways Restaurant, this once-in-a-lifetime culinary event will showcase locally harvested ingredients that tell the story of Bermuda's first people of African descent and how that heritage reflects in the island's food culture today. Don't miss your chance to take this revealing gastronomic trip with one of the world's most innovative chefs.
Tickets for this special dinner will go on sale in November.
