The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

World-ac­claimed Chef Or­lando is to ex­cite taste buds with his unique culi­nary cre­ations!

The culi­nary prow­ess of yet an­other famed and cel­e­brated Saint Lu­cia chef will be dis­played to the world as mouth-wa­ter­ing culi­nary flavour is added to the 24th edi­tion of the Saint Lu­cia Jazz and Arts Fes­ti­val.

Fes­ti­val go­ers will be in for a treat when Soufriere-based Chef Or­lando Satchell de­liv­ers a one-of-a-kind culi­nary ex­pe­ri­ence as part of a grow­ing arts seg­ment of the fes­ti­val.

World-renowned Chef Or­lando, who spe­cial­izes in Caribbean cui­sine, will take cen­tre stage at the home of the fes­ti­val – Pi­geon Is­land, dis­play­ing his culi­nary skills on three con­sec­u­tive days be­gin­ning May 8.

“Plac­ing the spot­light on our leg­endary fine cui­sine and, by ex­ten­sion, our su­perbly tal­ented chefs are tes­ta­ment to us fur­ther di­ver­si­fy­ing the arts com­po­nent of the fes­ti­val,” said Deputy Direc­tor and Head of Mar­ket­ing for the Saint Lu­cia Tourist Board, Tracey Warn­erArnold.

“We be­gan flavour­ing the fes­ti­val in 2014 with our culi­nary am­bas­sador, Nina Comp­ton and we are proud to con­tinue with yet an­other in­ter­na­tion­ally rec­og­nized but lo­cally grounded chef in Or­lando Satchell,” stated Warner-Arnold.

Fes­ti­val pa­trons will be able to sam­ple some of the de­lec­ta­ble culi­nary cre­ations as part of an open air cooking demon­stra­tion carded for the af­ter­noon of Satur­day May 9.

Pa­trons can, by book­ing reser­va­tions, par­take in the fine dining ex­pe­ri­ence that in­cludes a scrump­tious three course menu. There is also a small, but care­fully cho­sen, wine list that pairs well with the cui­sine and en­hances the dining ex­pe­ri­ence.

Chef Or­lando Satchell served for 14 years as the Ex­ec­u­tive Chef at the in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­claimed Ladera Re­sort. He went on to set up the first Caribbean restau­rant in Sin­ga­pore and in sev­eral top ho­tels in Lon­don. The pres­ti­gious James Beard Foun­da­tion in New York in­vited him to demon­strate his cooking style at an event that made him the first Caribbean chef to be in­vited. He has also demon­strated at Le Cor­don Bleu in Lon­don.

His own restau­rant, named Or­lando’s and nes­tled in the south­west­ern town of Soufriere, gained a Cer­tifi­cate of Ex­cel­lence from TripAd­vi­sor af­ter only one year and has held the num­ber one restau­rant spot in Soufriere ever since.
