InselAir, member of the Bonaire Hotel and Tourism Association (BONHATA) is proud to assist the Bonaire Culinary Team in the travel to Miami next month to compete in the Taste of the Caribbean culinary competition for professional chefs and bartenders. The Taste of the Caribbean is organized by the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA) of which the Bonaire Hotel and Tourism Association (BONHATA) is an active member.
Team manager Floris van Loo is very pleased with the InselAir sponsoring. “As our regional airline we find it very important to work together on projects that assist the community and that offer training and learning opportunities to our employees. The Taste of the Caribbean competition has a direct link between our culinary arts and our tourism and we are excited to have InselAir on board this year.”
The Bonaire Culinary Team is intensively training for this competition. The chefs held their first fundraiser dinner on Sunday May 17th at “It Rains Fishes” which was completely sold out. It Rains Fishes kindly made their kitchen and restaurant available to the team. The team prepared a delicious three course meal consisting of an appetizer, main course and dessert which all had a touch of traditional Bonairean flavors with a modern twist. There are some tickets available for the last cook out on Sunday June 7, restaurant At Sea will be hosting the team that evening.
Tickets are available at $ 50 for a three course dinner with wine and in addition to that, cocktails prepared by Jay Frans, winner of the Bonaire bartender competition 2015. Cocktails are served at 6 pm, followed by dinner at 6:30 pm. Reservations are required.
