Love will be in the air on Saturday, Feb. 11, at 7 p.m. for the second annual
Hopelessly Romantic II!
The Turks and Caicos Friends of the Arts Foundation (TCFAF) with the objective of increasing membership, will host the event. Last year’s event proved a huge success with
more than 200 new memberships sold. All monies generated from this fundraiser
will go back into various TCFAF programs and workshops.
The evening will enchant guests with music from the islands’ most beautiful
voices, delicious culinary delicacies prepared with love from local
chefs and a hopelessly romantic atmosphere at the beautiful Stargazer Villa. There will be all styles of music, so bring your dancing shoes! Featuring from last year, Wendy Hayward on piano, and such artists as Alan Lenathen and Herbie Swann, Janardo LaPorte and his saxaphone as well as the amazing voices of Cora Malcolm, Candy Barrotti, Julian Garland, David Been, Addison Stoddard, Cristina Zaccheo, Josie Smith along with many new talents to entertain you during the evening.
Several local chefs will battle out their creative and savory meals in a
culinary competition. Watch as they whip up their most tantalizing and seductive
hors d’oeuvres, canapés, small plates, or desserts as they are displayed
and tasted by a panel of judges. Chefs in the competition will be
judged on innovation, artistry on the plate, taste, and relevance to the romantic
theme. Last year’s first place award went to Amy Caffarel from Pine
Cay’s Meridian Club for her small seductive desserts. Second place went to
Tiki Hut’s Derrick Carter for his mille feuille shortbread with Chantilly
crème and shaved Verona chocolate. Third place went to Annick Vernay’s
vegetable skewers on a pineapple, followed very closely by Amanyara Chef
Fritz Zwahlen’s small plates of cannelloni and croquettes.
Tickets are $40 and include a champagne cocktail, wonderful culinary delights made by talented island chefs, live musical performances and membership to TCFAF.
Tickets for the event are available at the Unicorn Book Store and Saltmills Diner. Secure parking provided by Scotiabank and Security Management Services, with regular shuttle service to and from the Villa by Grace Bay Car Rentals.
