PRESS RELEASE – Bay Gardens Resorts is extremely proud to welcome its very own Sous Chef Peter Lawrence back to work after capturing a gold medal at the recently held Taste of the Caribbean Competition in Miami, Florida.
Chef Peter has been creating culinary masterpieces from the Bay Gardens Beach Resort’s Hi Tide kitchen for nearly six years. Though he is very well-rounded in the kitchen, his specialty is seafood. This led him to edge out his competition and capture the gold award in the seafood category.
“The main challenge for me was competing against such amazing talent while still managing to be original in the dishes I created,” commented Chef Peter.
He continued: “This is a very humbling experience for me, I learned and experienced so much, all of which will certainly help me take my work to the next level. I’m thankful to everyone who supported me along this wonderful culinary journey.”
Executive Director of Bay Gardens Resorts, Sanovnik Destang, praised Chef Peter and the entire team for their efforts .
“Food and beverage is undoubtedly an integral part of the hospitality industry. It is remarkable to see such exceptional homegrown talent continuing to showcase St. Lucia’s mostly untapped culinary potential. We need to continue to grow this talent and provide ample and apt avenues for them to shine,” Destang said.
The management and team members of Bay Gardens Resorts would also like to extend congratulations to the entire St. Lucian culinary team for their award-winning performance at the Taste of the Caribbean Competition in Miami.
The local team was able to hold its own against formidable competition from around the Caribbean.
