Thousands headed to the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Port of Spain, at the weekend for the annual Taste T&T Culinary Festival, which was officially opened by Tourism Minister Joseph Ross.
Now in its fourth edition, the festival continues to grow attracting food lovers not only from the country but from other parts of the globe as well.
Designer Brian MacFarlane again left patrons in awe with his nostalgic Caribbean days of the past. Tents, which featured the various cuisines of the country’s top chefs, were turned into white buildings resembling those of colonial French designs.
Vintage cars and white lanterns only added to the ‘ole time’ atmosphere making one feel as though they were actually in a movie about Cuba.
