Food Revolution Kids’ Seed2Plate Workshop

Budding chefs aged eight to 12 can join Cayman Food Revolution to test their culinary skills with a fun, interactive and educational cooking class. Participants will be grouped into teams and presented with a basket of local ingredients and a recipe to work together to create. Led by Cayman’s Food Revolution Ambassador Maureen Cubbon, young chefs will be inspired and educated with culinary skills they can take home with them and afterwards, everyone will have the chance to pot their own edible plant to start a chef garden at home.
The cost is CI$35 per child. Net proceeds will benefit the Cayman Food Revolution Seed2Plate after-school programme. Space is limited.

Meet Our Guest Chef, Chef Clare Smyth
Chef Clare Smyth, MBE, is the UK’s most acclaimed female chef, and the only female chef to retain three Michelin stars as the Chef Patron of Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in London.
After an eight-year tenure at the helm of Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, Clare is ready to strike out on her own with a signature restaurant opening in London later this year.
On her journey to culinary independence, there’s no better stopover than the culinary capital of the Caribbean, the Cayman Islands.
Joining the talented culinary teams of the Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa and Abacus, Chef Clare will work with these culinary teams – chefs Massimo De Francesca and Remy LeFevre from Seafire and Abacus’s head chef, farm-to-table stalwart Will O’Hara – to create bespoke dining experiences over 10 days, marrying fine dining with the distinct flavours of the Caribbean.
Join The Food Revolution
Founded by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, The Food Revolution is a movement that celebrates good, fresh, real food and teaches the benefits of cooking from scratch. Cayman Food Revolution Ambassador Maureen Cubbon launched the Cayman Islands chapter in 2015 to help educate and empower our community about food and where it comes from. She recently partnered with Slow Food South Sound and YMCA to start a Seed2Plate after-school programme in the islands’ public schools and the first garden was planted on 7 March, 2016 at Red Bay Primary School. The goal of the programme is to promote agriculture, sustainability, nutrition and cooking to help build healthy habits that last a lifetime.
We are pleased to help raise awareness and funds for Cayman Food Revolution and the Seed2Plate school programme through Slow Food Day. There are a number of ways you can lend your support:
1. Visit the Cayman Food Revolution booth at the Tasting Market to learn more and make a donation.
2. Register your budding chef for the Kids’ Seed2Plate Workshop and net proceeds will benefit Cayman Food Revolution.
